Green Man Festival have announced Ride as their Thursday night headliners for this years event. They will be performing on the FAR OUT, fresh from the release of ‘Weather Diaries’ – their first album in 21 years.
Elsewhere on their line-up they list ‘the psychedelic garage rock of ALLAH–LAS, the lo-fi indie-pop of Spanish quartet HINDS and the late-night hypnotic electro beats of DANIEL AVERY. PLUS we’ve bagged D.D DUMBO, CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON, THE MATTSON 2 and a whole host of other Green Man delights. They join our already MASSIVE line-up alongside PJ HARVEY, RYAN ADAMS, FUTURE ISLANDS and THE SHINS.
By night, our Far Out area will become a utopia of otherworldly pleasures, courtesy of our pals at CHAI WALLAHS. Those guys know how to throw a party: Mercury-nominated cosmic jazz trio THE COMET IS COMING, poet, novelist, musician and lecturer described as the leader of the black avant-garde in Britain ANTHONY JOSEPH, the return of genre-defying noisemakers BROKEN BRASS ENSEMBLE and infectious West African vibes from Ghana via Sheffield 9-piece K.O.G. & THE ZONGO BRIGADE are among the performers set to rock your world after dark. Diplomats of Sound will also be DJing between a further 35 plus acts!’
