NEWS: Fleet Foxes, The War On Drugs, John Grant and Jane Weaver amongst first names for Green Man 2018

Green Man has announced the first details of its 2018 event, which runs from Thursday August 16th to 19th in the stunning surroundings of the Black Mountains, deep in the heart of the Brecon Beacons.

Having last graced the stage back in 2009, Green Man welcomes back Seattle’s Fleet Foxes. Alongside them, The War On Drugs make their return – fresh from releasing their fourth album, A Deeper Understanding, last summer,

Alongside that double-header, Green Man welcome the incomparable John Grant back to the Brecon Beacons for the first time since 2010, an artist who, both with his work with The Czars and subsequent solo releases, has proven himself to be a true and genuine one-of-a-kind.

Also appearing in 2018, Jane Weaver brings her warped and wonderful cosmological psych-pop, following the release of her magnificent seventh album, Modern KosmologyDirty Projectors will supply brooding art-rock mastery, alongside Public Service Broadcasting who return with their concept album based on the Welsh mining industry;Mount Kimbie promise to enthral with their dense electronica, and Phoebe Bridgers,Courtney Marie Andrews, and Howling Bells’Juanita Stein will offer something altogether more refined and introspective.

Elsewhere, Japanese noise-rock maestros Bo Ningen, alongside the infamous Brian Jonestown Massacre, will turn up the heat with their electrifying live shows; while Kevin Morby returns with his mystical rock and roll, as well Shannon Lay whose mesmerising 2017 LP was the first release on Morby’s own record label.

All of that and Green Man still has their Friday night’s headliner, and a whole host of other artists, to announce!

More than just a music festival, Green Man is built around 10 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 the kids, and dedicated film, art, and literature events that run alongside the dazzling display of music.

Tickets are on general sale now, and having sold out in record time last year, they recommend snapping them up as soon as possible! Also on sale once again 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 holiday experience from Green Man 2018.
