Tickets for Green Man 2011 go on general sale TODAY!

We promised you big news and we’re giddy with excitement to reveal the first headliner for our ninth annual shindig – but the stellar supporting cast is taking shape too…

Bellowhead have been voted Best Live Band at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards an unparalleled FIVE times! The 11-piece band, complete with brass section, bagpipes and bouzouki, are sure to be one of the highlights of Green Man 2011.

The Burns Unit is a new “carnival rock/pop supergroup” featuring our old friend King Creosote, ex-Delgados singer Emma Pollock and Scottish indie legend Future Pilot AKA. Not to be missed.

Villagers released the Mercury-nominated Becoming A Jackal on Domino Records last year, a spine-tingling debut album packed with gripping poetry and spine-tingling melodies.

Wild Nothing – aka Jack Tatum – counts My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins as influences for his dreamy synth-pop songs, while Sic Alps bring some lo-fi, Pavement-esque experimentalism to the party from across the pond.

Polar Bear need little introduction, led by drummer Seb Rochford and featuring members of Acoustic Ladyland, electronics whizz Leafcutter John and one of the greatest saxophonists in Britain.

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s best-loved songwriters, a cult hero who has played with the likes of Nick Lowe, Gillian Welch, Graham Coxon and REM’s Peter Buck over a varied 30-year career.

All of this plus hotly-tipped newcomers and old favourites alike, including: Ellen & The Escapades, Our Broken Garden, Emily Barker, The Gentle Good, 2:54, The Travelling Band, Bleeding Heart Narrative, The Ramshackle Union Band, Mancub Babywoman and more!

Why not join them in the Brecon Beacons on August 19-21?

Trust us, this is just the beginning.
