It’s July 2015 and we’re knee deep in this year’s festival season. Luckily, this year it’s been a hugely sunny affair, with only a very small amount of the typical UK festival mud. 2000 Trees in Cheltenham was no exception; with soaring temperatures and many lobster-red attendees it was a bumper year for Farida Guitars. Farida endorsees Fort Hope (JTB-13M) and Idlewild (CT-36 in see through red) performed with Deaf Havana (CT-32 and CT-36) headlining the Main Stage on Friday night.
2000 Trees, now in its 9th year, is a multi-award winning independent festival set in the rolling Cotswolds hills. Previous performers have included Lucy Rose, Dry The River, The Subways, Twin Atlantic and Farida endorsee Frank Turner who is also the namesake of one of the 2000 Trees campsites. The festival has 5 music stages: Main Stage, The Cave, The Axiom, The Croft and Forest Sessions. Over the weekend over 30 bands recorded acoustic performances using Farida guitars; we will put these on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ukfaridaguitars) over the next few weeks.
Chris Pennells and James Veck-Gilodi from Deaf Havana, Friday night’s headliner, both used Farida electric guitars during their stunning set. Pennells uses the P90 loaded CT-32 in olympic white and Veck-Gilodi uses the single-coil CT-29; all guitars in the CT Series feature a unique modern/retro body shape.
