Though 2000 Trees Festival was originally set to go ahead this weekend, for obvious reasons it sadly can’t, but the organisers have confirmed a virtual version will be held instead.

Aptly named 2000 Screens Festival, the event will allow fans to experience live music, interviews, and other content, all hosted by Sappenin’ Podcast.

This is what organiser James Scarlett had to say about it.

“Obviously we’re gutted that there won’t be a 2000trees this summer, but I can promise you that this is the next best thing. We’ve got loads of amazing exclusive content and I’m particularly excited by the live sets from Jimmy Eat World and Jamie Lenman. Honestly they have to be seen to be believed! There is also an interview between some of the organisers and Sappenin’ Podcast – make sure you tune in for loads of reminiscing and never before told stories plus a couple of line up hints for 2021.”
