Amidst erratic weather and a surface of the slippery and gooey sort, 2000trees Festival held another stellar edition of new British music (with a couple of underground heroes to top it off) with three days of the most varied rock genres and exciting bands to emerge from the UK.
Early entry ticket holders were treated to a fine selection of alternative rock to enjoy under the biblical rainfall. Real newcomers I, The Lion and The Cape Of Good Hope both made decent introductions to their sound with the latter edging somewhat with their instrumental dual-drumming sound. Straight Lines’ brand of infectious pop-rock drew a comfortable crowd under the tent as they confidently belted hook after hook after hook.
Quite suddenly, and out of the blue, 2000trees were with what was certainly one of the stand-out gigs of the festival. Tall Ships unleashed a synthy, post-rock, loop-pedal-overusing, rousing, dancing and emotional thunderstorm of a setlist. From ‘T=0’s arty dance rhythms to ‘Vessels’ wonderful crowd participation with ‘Plate Tectonics’ a superb highlight, the band were drawing muddy drifting souls into the tent and selling them their world.
