Location: Brecon Beacons, South Wales
Spring has sprung and Green Man Festival has gone to town to boost the bountiful selection already adorning this year’s bill.
LA 10-strong indie rockers Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros have got a new album on the way and will be unleashing their beach-linked grooves in the mountains of South Wales. Returning to the festival are Nottinghamshire veterans Tindersticks, whose atmospheric introspections – now 25 years in the game – still sound uniquely their own. Sister act The Unthanks return too, with kind offerings of soft-lit folk. Slow Club, meanwhile, are sure to turn a few heads with their scrappy indie pop.
Glitch-rockers Suuns are booked in to deliver a lesson in head-nodding intensity, with Portishead-descended Beak also specialising in pop thick with electric atmosphere. Kevin Morby, with a new album due any minute, will have feet stomping to the beat of his rousing folk rock.
Stereolab off-shoot Cavern of Anti-Matter are sure to have you grooving along to their rough-and-ready electro jams, while Cigarettes After Sex will provide ambient soundscapes to recline to afterwards. After a sad cancellation of last year’s tour BC Camplight will now be bringing their endearing pop to the festival.
