Summer is saved.
Green Man have today confirmed that the much-loved Welsh festival will be going ahead on 19th-22nd August; featuring headline performances from Caribou, Little Dragon, Mogwai and Fontaines DC.
These will be joined by a mixture of festival mainstays and new names who have blossomed during the pandemic. Thundercat, Django Django & Gruff Rhys will take to the Mountain Stage, whilst the likes of Porridge Radio, Goat Girl, Shame, black midi and Crack Cloud (to name a few) will be performing in the Far Out area.
Set in the shadow of the Brecon Beacons, Green Man features acclaimed artists in the fields of music, comedy and dance, alongside hosting workshops and a big flaming effigy of a man.
“There’s a kind of magic about Green Man,” Dan Snaith – AKA Caribou – says on the announcement. ‘I feel very lucky that we’re going to headline this year.’
