As our rolling Welsh hills are warmed up by the past week’s wonderful weather, it’s not long now ‘til we descend on the glorious Brecon Beacons for reclining in the rays and imbibing inspirational music from this year’s guests!
We’ve kept you waiting, but we think she’s worth the wait.. We’re over the moon to reveal our third and final headliner, in the majestical form of Laura Marling, the enchanting folk goddess. Laura returns for her third performance at Green Man, her legendary performances have always gone down a storm and we’re already feeling awestruck imagining her Saturday night set, full of new album material on the Mountain Stage in 2016. All four of our headliners are from the United Kingdom this year!
Lush return from a 20-year hiatus and their haze-filtered, bittersweet grooves will be transporting us away to blissful harmony. We’re feeling very jammy, too, that we can welcome Connan Mockasin’s psych-pop to soundtrack carefree cavorting in the sun.
Just as unique an experience will be Charlotte Church’s Late Night Pop Dungeon, a karaoke, glitter-bomb explosion – unlike any other you’ve experienced before, or ever will again. And there’s yet more electronic wizardry with the addition of Blanck Mass and Vessels and their glitchy beautiful electronica, not to mention the news that the Chai Wallahs tent will be returning with more beats and boogieing to sustain you all well into the early hours.
New additions in full:
Laura Marling (Saturday night Headliner), Lush, Connan Mockasin, Charlotte Church’s Late Night Pop Dungeon, Vessels, Blanck Mass, Malcolm Middleton, Black Peaches, Pete Paphides (DJ), Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog, Haiku Salut, Exploded View, Bill Baird, Margaret Glaspy, Seapinks, Meilir Tomos, Matt Maltese, Earth Recordings (DJ), 47 Soul, Akua Naru, Asbo Disco, By The Rivers, Carny Villains, Chainska Brassika, Diplomats of Sound (DJ), Future Dub Project, Gringo Ska, Guts, Hot Feets, Luke Potter, Makuti, Parker & Moneyshot, Sam Green & The Midnight Heis, Shelanagig, Spinx, Urban Folk Quartet, Will Varley.
Hurry Up August!
A big thank you to everyone who snapped theirs up today!
Wow!! What an incredible FIFTEENTH birthday that was.. Our hearts are full of love and we're so thankful to you for making this weekend the most special, unforgetable weekend ever.
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!
Our fabulous fifteenth birthday marks our earliest ever sell out! We’re chuffed that so many of you lovely festival folk will be joining us to celebrate in the beautiful black mountains.
