about

I first went to 2000 Trees Festival back in 2010 with a big group of friends because it was the only place I’d be able to see bands like ASIWYFA, Maybeshewill, Tubelord, Future of the Left and a whole bunch of others all in one place. Eventually the same people made ArcTanGent, and while that came to become my favourite festival, 2000 Trees still holds a special place in my heart.

It was back in 2013 that I bumped into a group of campers by the name of ‘Camp Kev’, and it was by pure chance that in 2014 me and my friend Woody (we’d sworn this was the last time we were going as the rest of the group had picked ArcTanGent and sadly didn’t have the time/money to do both) bumped into them again. That year we swore we’d be back in 2015 to see them all again, and we’ll do the same this year.

Anyway, after I got home last year I wrote a song about how awesome it was to head down to this festival and see all these people that I otherwise would never get to see. This group of total strangers who somehow became great friends (I think it was the mix of sun and booze). They accepted us in as one of their own and now it’s like we’re some kind of initiated cult. We ride together.

The song is twee and folky, which isn’t really what I do any more but I didn’t share it at the time.

lyrics

Sing for the South-West sun it's time to return to my friends
I'll count down every mile on our way to reunite once again

Oh the sound of your voice again it's like I've never even been away
So I'll just forget myself for a while I'm sure everything will be OK

'Cause in this place, on this ground
I will rest my heart and I will rest my mind
So sing along friends, sing it from the soul
Between the roots of these trees I know I'm home

Sing for the South-West starts we can sleep underneath them tonight
Or stay up and talk for hours and drink until the morning light

'Cause in this place, on this ground
I will rest my heart and I will rest my mind
So sing along friends, sing it from the soul
Between the roots of these trees I know I'm home

Oh singing hearts, singing souls
Sing it from the heart let me know I'm home

Oh singing hearts, singing souls
Sing it from the heart now take me home
