Making a welcome return to Green Man this August are Villagers – with the Black Mountains as your backdrop, where better to take in Conor’s poetic and
wistful alternative folk?
Plus… Patrick Watson brings his energetic pop, rich orchestration, and spine-tingling lyrical musings to Green Man. Joining him are staggering, multi-layered Brooklyn three-piece The Antlers; the legendary Tom Robinson Band; festival favourites Teleman; trippy danceable falsetto melody makers All We Are and a massive bunch more.
We are also delighted to welcome Meic Stevens, the Welsh singer-songwriter often fondly referred to as the ‘Welsh Dylan’!
Our inimitable festival atmosphere has always left Green Man guests with hazy, happy memories, and this year will be no exception. Experienced vibe-setters Chai Wallahs are delivering the goods with a heady mix of live acts and DJs from around the globe – including afrofunk nine-piece Jungle By Night, Dizraeli & The Small Gods, Birth of Joy and psychedelic jazz quartet Syd Arthur.
Stay tuned for more acts coming very soon (including our yet to be revealed Thursday night headliner) and don’t forget to buy tickets to join us for what’s shaping up to be the party of the summer.
We're sure you agree Green Man just doesn't feel the same without SFA who join us as our Saturday night Mountain Stage headliners. We’ve been waiting for the Furries to reform for years and we can’t wait to welcome them to Wales’ own Green Man in what promises to be a truly amazing homecoming show.
We’re super excited to announce London-duo Public Service Broadcasting with their unique blend of electronica influenced music. Jamie XX brings the party to the Beacons, playing out tracks from what we hope might become his first solo record. And we welcome back Temples to Green Man where they made their first ever-festival appearance in 2012.
The Summer Festival Guide can announce the latest additions to this years Green Man Festival lineup which includes The War On Drugs, The Waterboys and Neko Case.
Philadelphia indie rockers The War On Drugs have made arguably the record of the year with their third album, Lost In The Dream. It’s a tense and epic road trip through classic Americana that echoes the likes of Dylan, Springsteen and Arcade Fire. We can’t wait to see them headline the Far Out stage on Saturday night.
A ticket for #GreenMan14 also now gets you…
Celt-rock legends Mike Scott and The Waterboys who headline the Thursday night; Grammy-nominated alt-folk from Neko Case and psychedelic experimentalism from Panda Bear (also from Green Man 2009 headliner’s Animal Collective).

Hailed as “the natural heir to Leonard Cohen” (The Observer) following last year’s superb Dream River album, revel in 25 years of towering songcraft from classics such as 2005’s A River Ain’t Too Much Love.
Bill is joined by Canadian electronic auteur Caribou, creator of psychedelic dance masterpiece Swim (2010), and New Jersey indie trio Real Estate whose ace third albumAtlas is winning rave reviews and comparisons to early REM.
Mac Demarco, the 23-year-old ‘slacker rock’ wunderkind inspired by Shuggie Otis, Steely Dan and Weezer, the wonderful Hamilton Leithauser (lead singer of The Walkmen), and analogue production and DJ duo Simian Mobile Disco.
