2000trees is something of a spiritual home for Jamie Lenman, a much earlier year of Trees was even set to be headlined by his previous band, Reuben. In 2019 he isn’t headlining the now much larger festival, but he does have his own stage, with a personally curated line-up for the opening day. We caught up with the man himself to reflect on the 'Golden Age' of British post-hardcore and its resurgence.
Danny and Kieran from Phoxjaw joined us at 2000Trees after their excellent set on the Neu Stage earlier that day. We talked about festivals, the Bristol music scene, their latest EP A Playground For Sad Adults and their plans for the rest of the year.
Patrick and Corey from the mighty Drug Church sat down with us shortly before their set at 2000trees. We spoke about camping, Blue Oyster Cult, Echo & the Bunnymen, metal, punk and hardcore, as well as the importance of not taking yourself too seriously.
