First up, we're elated that LA indie rockers Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are set to join us at the fourteenth Green Man. With a new album imminent ‘PersonA’ – and a stage-hogging 10 members in tow – their big band, beach-licked grooves will be a glorious addition to the (already glorious) Brecon Beacons.
Returning to the festival are Nottinghamshire veterans Tindersticks, whose atmospheric introspections – now 25 years in the game – still sound uniquely their own. Sister act The Unthanks return, too, with kind offerings of soft-lit folk. Slow Club, meanwhile, are sure to turn a few heads with their classic indie pop.
Glitch-rockers Suuns are booked in to deliver a lesson in head-nodding intensity, with Portishead-descendants Beak> also specialising in pop thick with electric atmosphere. Kevin Morby, with a new album due any minute, will have feet stomping to the beat of his rousing folk rock.
Stereolab off-shoot Cavern of Anti-Matter are sure to have you grooving along to their rough-and-ready electro jams, while Cigarettes After Sex will provide ambient soundscapes to recline to afterwards. BC Camplight, after sadly forced to cancel last year, will now finally bring their endearing pop to the festival.
There's chuck loads more music still to be announced, too, along with our FINAL HEADLINER, which will be coming sooner than you think!

Back of Beyond makes a triumphant return at Green Man 2017 with an incendiary assortment of dance, circus and performing arts. This year, the area is located in the alluring shadows of the Green Man, awakening the lively spirit of the Black Mountains with a rambunctious roster of legend-themed performance.
As well as being the year of our 15th birthday (!!!), 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Green Man Rising: our annual showdown between the best unsigned acts in the UK. ️
We're often asked what the Settlement is all about.. Here's a beautiful film shot during last year's Settler's Pass to give you a good idea!
