Our full review and gallery is coming soon so keep your[…]

COMMUNITY: 2000 Trees Festival – Building a Festival – DAILY BLOG

Wednesday 10th July: Once the perimeter fencing has been pitched and the artwork is finished it’s time to patch up the site and fill it fit to burst with the team’s incredible creations.

Download Festival – Donnington Park, Derby – LIVE REVIEW

At first glance Download’s 2018 line up wasn’t exceptional. The headliner choices were barely something to write home about. Download’s Main Stage has been graced by the likes of Iron Maiden, AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Def Leppard and Aerosmith to name a few. These aren’t just names, these are the bands that defined the genre. Can Avenged Sevenfold really be considered of the same ilk? It’s certainly debatable. Should they have been given a chance regardless? Absoloutely! Did they completely crush[…]

The reason why less and less festivals manage to sell out is a complicated one, open for debate and already heavily analysed. But the reason why Slam Dunk CAN is pretty obvious. Every year they pull together a[…]

2000 Trees Festival – Cheltenham – 06/07/2017 – 08/07/2017 – LIVE REVIEW

Dear Andy, Brendan, James, Mark, Rob and Si, (Opted for alphabetical order again, so far so good). Last year I came to what is still your shining accomplishment, 2000 Trees Festival, to lend a hand during set up week and blog a bit. Afterwards I struggled to compact everything I felt about my time there into a review and instead opted to write you a letter. Namely, this letter. I incorrectly assumed that nothing would ever beat my week at 2KT 2K16[…]
