Green Man 2017 (17 – 20 August) heralds the festival's 15th birthday and, to celebrate, they have a heap of a haul for their line up, some full-on musical heroes, including those of a certain CCQer. 

PJ Harvey will be headlining the Mountain Stage. The Mercury Prizes, the album-after-album of sheer beaut and skill, the multi-instrument flair and voice of gultural magic - full on goosebumps for sure. It’s been over ten long years since PJH last played in Wales apparently, and a fine time and place to return. Ryan Adams is a master of the moody and devilish journey through country music and Americana and beyond, so say the Green Man; both he and the Future Islands, with their silky, synth dappled grooves from the States, playing in Wales for the first time ever - will also headline.

Other tiptop performers include: two time Mercury nominated, Michael Kiwanuka, returning to GM for the third time; the legendary LambchopConor Oberst – aka Bright Eyes; and, oh yeah, Angel Olsen ... who's blistering, spine-tingling show in Bristol last year was a thing to behold. And myohmy Laura Gibson!!!

Green Man 2017 takes place in the beautiful Brecon Beacons from Thursday 17 to Sunday 20 August, putting glorious musical performers in the most magical of settings. With 10 unique areas, there are whole worlds to explore – from late night, frisky goings-on in the Far Out field, to the best in comedy and literature in Babbling Tongues, over one hundred beers and ciders in The Courtyard to beaker-fizzing experiments and artartart in Einstein’s Garden - and loads, loads more besides.

Bring. It. On.
