Band of Horses
The Grammy-nominated Seattle four-piece have made some of the most anthemic, affecting and downright life-affirming American music of recent times – from acclaimed 2007 breakthrough Cease To Being to last autumn’s supremely confident Mirage Rock.

The Horrors released their imperious third album Skying in 2011 to universal acclaim, at once confirming their status as one of the UK’s most magnetic, ‘must-see’ live bands – see you down the front.

Local Natives have just released their new album Hummingbird, the follow-up to the the band’s critically-acclaimed debut album. Fresh from supporting the likes of Arcade Fire and The National the band will be heading to the Black Mountains this August and we cant wait

Edwyn Collins is the former frontman of Orange Juice and a bona fide indie legend. With a new solo album due out in March, expect timeless songs of hope, despair and no little wit. We’re thrilled to welcome him.

Roy Harper is a British institution – a survivor from the golden age of folk-rock whose single-mined integrity is stamped on a body of work lauded by Fleet Foxes, Led Zep, Kate Bush and many more.

Fu*k Buttons return to Green Man after an unforgettable Far Out headline set in 2011 (not to mention an unlikely cameo in the Olympics opening ceremony). Brace yourself for euphoric melodies and gut-busting beats galore.

The Pastels make a rare live appearance with the aptly named Slow Summits – their first studio album in 16 years –and a lifetime of cult acclaim from Teenage Fanclub, Sonic Youth, Kurt Cobain and others.

Archie Bronson Outfit’s last album Coconut was released back in March 2010 and we’re welcoming them back with open arms! They last played the festival in 2008, so their performance this year is highly anticipated.

James Yorkston is an integral addition to any line-up of the UK’s Best Grass Roots Festival; like catching up with an old friend over a whisky beside a roaring log fire.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are one of the best new bands to emerge so far this year, arriving from New Zealand via Oregon and riding the crest of the neo-psychedelic wave.

Andrew Weatherall need no introduction. He has already provided us with more than our fair share of Green Man moments over the years – got room for one more?

Jon Hopkins is an electronic artist whose gift for compelling collaborations reached new heights with King Creosote and the Mercury-nominated album Diamond Mine in 2011.

All of this plus must-see sets from Woods, Matt Berry, Moon Duo, Arbouretum, This is the Kit, Ellen & The Escapades, Buke & Gase, Bear's Den, Fossil Collective, Rozi Plain, Blaenavon,  Zervas & Pepper, Trwbador, Wild Smiles, Fist of the First Man, DJ Fitz, Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Huw M and Annie Eve.
