In case you hadn’t heard, it’s Green Man’s 15th birthday. With Green Man being Wales’ biggest music festival, it only seems right to host some of the some of the biggest names in independent, electrifying music. Ahead of an eagerly awaited fifth album, The Shins showcase their enviable back catalogue of beautifully crafted guitar pop for their only UK Festival show this year.
Not only that, but there’s poet and musician Kate Tempest, whose personal, spine-tingling way with words has found its way into albums, books and startlingly original adaptations of Shakespeare. Sleaford Mods bring their direct, stripped back political exultations to fly the flag for punk music in 2017. Their electrifying live shows being where their bristling, confrontational energy shines brightest, we really can’t wait.
New additions in full:
The Shins, Kate Tempest, Sleaford Mods, Thee Oh Sees, Daniel Johnston, Shirley Collins, Saint Etienne, Liars, Julian Cope Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit, Roni Size, Fruit Bats, Andy Shauf, Timber Timbre, Pumarosa, Andy Shauf, Yorkston Thorne Khan, Pictish Trail, Moddi, Moses Boyd, Anna Meredith, Pumarosa, Alasdair Roberts, Charlie Cunningham, Julie Byrne, Holly Macve, Trembling Bells, Circulus, Aldous Harding, Nadia Reid, Happyness, Kikagaku Moya, Warm Digits, Benedict Benjamin, Nathan Ball, Jim Gehdi, Lice, Aled Rheon, H.Grimace, Gintis, Tom Ravenscroft (DJ), Huw Stephens (DJ), Earth Recordings (DJ)
