While 2000trees are already planning a huge 2021 following the cancellation of this year's event due to coronavirus, organisers have announced an awesome replacement for the festival in 2020: 2000screens.

The virtual festival will be taking place from July 9-11 (the original dates for this year's fest), with live music, interviews and more happening across 2000trees' social media.

“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,” enthuses James Scarlett.
