Greenman 2018: First announcement

Green Man Festival

August 16th – 19th

With early-bird tickets selling out in record time, this year’s festival will be as busy and brilliant as ever-before, welcoming a striking array of talent from all over the globe to our beautiful Welsh home in the heart of the Black Mountains.

Tickets are on general sale now, and having sold out in record time last year, we 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. The settlers pass is especially for taking in the views and the festival experience.

Green Man is delighted to welcome back Seattle’s Fleet Foxes, a band that has grown into one of the most prestigious in the world. Alongside them, The War On Drugs make their much-anticipated return – their classic rock canon well and truly in tow.

Grizzly Bear also announced for the festival and their fifth album, Painted Ruins, was their most thrilling and inventive to-date, beautifully showcasing their development over the past decade and more.

Also appearing in 2018, Jane Weaver brings her warped and wonderful cosmological psych-pop, following the release of her magnificent seventh album, Modern Kosmology; Dirty 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, we’re delighted to welcome Japanese noise-rock maestros Bo Ningen, who, 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.

There’s still a Friday night headliner to be announced with many more bands performing across the weekend. This is on course to being the festival’s best year to date.

Keep your eyes peeled for further announcements…
