Green Man Festival announce artists for 2018
Following on from last year’s 15th anniversary, Green Man announce the first details of its 2018 event, which will, once again, take place in the stunning surroundings of the Black Mountains, deep in the heart of the Brecon Beacons.
More than a music festival, Green Man is built around ten unique areas, offering enchanting worlds to be explored, taking in late-night revelry and day time relaxation, including a full beer and cider festival, science and discovery areas for kids, and dedicated film, art, and literature events that run alongside the music.
With early-bird tickets selling out in record time, this year’s festival will be as busy and bustling as ever-before, welcoming a array of talent from all over the globe.
Tickets are on general sale now, but having sold out in a flash last year, better to collect sooner rather than later. Also on sale is the famous Settler’s Pass, a special ticket which allows early access to the site from Monday 13th August, and includes discounts on local heritage sites, galleries, castles and more, for those wanting the full experience from Green Man 2018.
Having last frequented the stage back in 2009, Green Man brings back Seattle’s Fleet Foxes, a band that has grown into one of the most prestigious in the world. Alongside them, The War On Drugs make their return, back from releasing their fourth album, A Deeper Understanding, last summer.
Adjacent to that double-header, Green Man welcomes John Grant back to the Brecon Beacons for the first time since 2010. Plus, Grizzly Bear, showcasing their fifth album Painted Ruins.
Also appearing, Jane Weaver brings her psych-pop, following the release of her seventh album, Modern Kosmology. Dirty Projectors will supply brooding art-rock, alongside Public Service Broadcasting who return with their concept album based on the Welsh mining industry. Mount Kimbie with their dense electronica, and Phoebe Bridgers, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Howling Bells’ Juanita Steinwill offer something more introspective.
Elsewhere, Japanese noise-rockers Bo Ningen, who, alongside the infamous Brian Jonestown Massacre, will turn up the heat with their live shows; while Kevin Morby returns with his rock and roll, as well Shannon Lay whose 2017 LP was the first release on Morby’s own record label.
