Comments are Off

The Shins, Kate Tempest, Sleaford Mods, Thee Oh Sees, Daniel Johnston, Shirley Collins, AND over 40 new acts added to this year’s BIGGEST birthday party!

We’re doing two very important things on this fine, daffodil-strewn day: celebrating St David’s Day (Diolch!), and revealing even more news about this year’s extra-special edition of Green Man. In case you hadn’t heard, it’s our birthday – we’re turning 15 and we’re adding a brilliant, barnstorming bunch of musicians to the already-amazing #GreenMan17 line up! Tickets are flying out – so snap yours up now and join us for the Brecon Beacons’ biggest party! Tickets available from -http://greenman.net

With Green Man being Wales’ biggest music festival, it only seemed right to get some of the some of the biggest names in independent, electrifying music. Ahead of an eagerly awaited fifth album, we’re ecstatic to have THE SHINS showcase their enviable back catalogue of beautifully crafted guitar pop for their only UK Festival show this year.

Not only that, but we’ve got two fierce, outspoken artists to fire up and inspire you. Firstly, there’s poet and musician KATE TEMPEST, whose personal, spine-tingling way with words has found its way into albums, books and startlingly original adaptations of Shakespeare. Kate last played Einstein’s Garden way back in 2009 and, needless to say, we’re super happy to have her back! SLEAFORD MODS bring their direct, stripped back political exultations to fly the flag for punk music in 2017. Their electrifying live shows being where their bristling, confrontational energy shines brightest, we really can’t wait.
