Mogwai confirmed as final headliner for Green Man 2012

We're also thrilled to announce that Dexys, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Lower Dens, King Charles, Cate Le Bon and more also join the bill for this year's festival!

Formed in 1995 in Glasgow, Mogwai are famed for performing lengthy instrumentals with melodic bass lines, dynamic contrasts and heavy use of distortion and effects pedals. From classic debut Mogwai Young Team to supporting the Pixies and composing the soundtrack to a film about Zinedine Zidane, this is a band that never rests on its laurels. 
Mogwai’s 10th album – Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will – was released last year. Their headline set (the band's only UK show this summer) is sure to bring Friday night on the Mountain Stage to a suitably epic conclusion beneath the moonlit silhouette of the Sugar Loaf.
PLUS! Also newly-added to the ever expanding Green Man 2012 line up are:
Dexys Reformed incarnation of legendary ‘80s soul pop pioneers Dexys Midnight Runners, led by the great Kevin Rowland. With a new look inspired by 1940s noir and the excellent album One Day I’m Going To Soar, which is out on Monday, is a barnstorming return to form. Mojo have given it five stars, while Uncut have said 'It might just be the best record of the year and the best of Rowland's career'. If that wasn't enough to wet your appetite, a recent string of highly anticipated live dates that also featured classic Dexys hits have been receiving rave reviews across the board including full marks from The Guardian.  
Benjamin Francis Leftwich The Yorkshire-born singer/songwriter’s melancholic brand of acoustic folk-pop has drawn comparisons with the likes of Jose Gonzalez and Iron & Wine. Inspired by Elliott Smith and Bruce Springsteen, he taught himself to play the guitar aged 10. He made his Green Man debut in 2011 after releasing acclaimed first album Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm.
Lower Dens Swarming guitar fuzz, bass waves and insistent drum throbs from the Baltimore new wave drone pop outfit, fronted by Jana Hunter. 
King Charles Uniquely British psych-inflected pastoral whimsy from the dandy West Londoner currently promoting debut album Loveblood.
Cate le Bon Beguiling Welsh songstress currently residing in Cardiff's infamous French quarter – as befits a songwriter whose music is heady and highly personal Gallic stew inspired by the likes of Nico and Pavement.  Her new album Cryk is one of the highlights of 2012 so far, marrying the playfulness of Faust and Syd Barrett with the tropical melodies of Os Mutantes. 
Withered Hand Heartfelt acoustic loveliness from the Fence Records endorsed quartet, led by fragile-voiced Scottish songwriter Dan Willson.
Paul Thomas Saunders With influences such as Joe Meek and Leonard Cohen, Paul Thomas Saunders encapsulates both the psychedelic soundscape and intellectual sentimentality that the sixties graced us with, then wraps it up in a spiralling contemporary shell.
Crybaby Crybaby is the alias of Bristol singer/songwriter Danny Coughlan. The ten songs which make up his self-titled debut album are beautifully crafted and imbued with a sparse, timeless clarity. Neither a note nor a word is wasted. 
Stuff Three piece Manchester band who describe their sound as “Yoda Rock”. Currently recording their second album in their own purpose built studio.

Feist to perform at Flow Festival 2012

More additions to the line up will be released on Tuesday, February 14. The ninth Flow Festival will be organised in Helsinki's Suvilahti on 8–12 August 2012.

Leslie Feist (born 1976) rose to the forefront of modern pop music with her 2007 album "The Reminder". Both critics and fans lauded what was to become the talented artist's breakthrough record thanks to Feist's remarkable charisma, her sheer talent as a singer and songwriter, and the hit-filled album's depth as a musical achievement. Feist's 2011 LP "Metals" took things a step further, introducing a more organic sonic palette with added warmth, offering the perfect backdrop for one of the most talented vocalists in modern music.

On Sunday 12 August 2012, Feist will make her long overdue Finnish debut at Flow Festival.

Feist to headline Green Man Festival 2012

The Canadian singer-songwriter will play the 10th anniversary Green Man Festival on Sunday August 19, and heads the first wave of amazing acts confirmed for the most varied and exciting line-up in our decade-long history.

Feist’s Grammy-nominated 2007 solo breakthrough The Reminder sold over a million copies worldwide, while last year’s superb follow-up Metals was declared the best album of 2011 by The New York Times.

A long-standing member of acclaimed music collective Broken Social Scene, Feist has also collaborated with the likes of Wilco, Beck and Grizzly Bear, and this month received a 2012 Brit Award nomination for Best International Female Solo Artist.

What better way to end Green Man’s 10th birthday bash than in the company of one of the most beguiling voices in modern music? Heavenly…
