2000Trees with Death From Above 1979 & PEACH

As the eagerly anticipated 2000Trees Festival draws near, we took the opportunity to connect with some of the bands gracing this year’s lineup. This renowned festival, held at the picturesque Upcote Farm, is celebrated for its eclectic mix of emerging and established artists, creating an immersive experience for music lovers.

In part Four we caught up with Death From Above 1979 and PEACH and discussed their festival essentials, what they’re most looking forward to, and their plans for the rest of 2024.

What can people expect from your set?

DFA1979 : Lots of stuff from our debut LP “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” as we’re celebrating its 20th anniversary. + The hits!

PEACH : loud and emotional banshee cries, hard driven drums, gnarly tones and catchy riffs.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

DFA1979 : More “You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine” 20th anniversary celebration shows through the US and CANADA. Sneaky releases. Then of course the back breaking daily work of living out in the middle of nowhere.

PEACH : touring the UK with Sans Froid in September. Writing and recording our 2nd album in December. It’s going to be a very cool year. Oh, and you can catch us at ArcTanGent fest in August!

DFA1979 : Champagne, cocaine and sausages.

PEACH : a bag of tinnies, and a chair
