Green Man Festival have just announced the first headliners to appear at this years festival in the beautiful Black Mountains. They are to welcome back the multi-talented Zach Condon and Beirut as they headline the Mountain Stage on Friday August 14th. They played an unforgettable set back in 2010 so this will go down a treat with the many Green Man regulars.
It doesn’t stop there as Neutral Milk Hotel, back together in their classic line-up led by the mercurial Jeff Magnum, are to close four days of five-star live music with a Sunday headline set.
Also appearing will be Swedish sisters First Aid Kit, skuzzy stoner-rock from Kurt Vile & The Violators, nocturnal atmospherics from the soon-to-be-massive Daughter, and epic raw emotion from Anna Calvi as well as Brooklyn indie-folk favourite Sharon Van Etten, genius cult hero Jeffrey Lewis & The Jrams, blissful folktronica from Tunng and moody krautrockers Toy.
In addition the following bands are also performing: I Break Horses |Ry X | Lanterns on the Lake | Frank Fairfield | Fat White Family | William Tyler | Michael Chapman | Speedy Ortiz | Georgia Ruth | All We Are | Happyness | Plank! | Eaves | Sons of Noel & Adrian | Valleyers | John Mouse
There is still a Saturday Headliner to be announced and more.
