Australian gods King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are headlining their first ever British festival and Greenman is a perfect festival for this occasion. The band released 5 albums throughout 2017 and it spiralled them into one of the best acts on the planet right now.
Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach is curtaing the music at the Settler’s Pass stage this year – the area which gives festival goers an entire week in the Brecon Beacons from Monday 13th August, with everything from woodworking & foraging workshops, to yoga, late night comedy & raft building.
Clwb ifor Bach said “We’re showcasing some of our favourite local bands and artists, ranging from Los Blancos’ grungy guitars, to My Name is Ian’s melancholy party anthems, to the power house vocals and gripping lyrics of Marged. We hope to give an insight to some of the very best music Wales has to offer.”
Joining them are Cate Le Bon, Anna Calvi, Joan as a Policewoman, Black Angels and Floating Points, the DJ whose cross-genre productions encompass jazz, soul and classical music refashioned into unstoppable house bangers that are sure to ignite Green Man 2018 from corner to corner; and John Maus, whose acclaimed fourth studio album Screen Memories was released at the end of 2017 and will be followed in April this year by Addendum, a vinyl-only album composed of songs that were left off Screen Memories. Electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco have changed the face of techno and will perform at Green Man alongside Hackney’s all female Deep Throat Choir, with Baltimore’s Wye Oak also on the line up, celebrating their album The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs which is due for release in April this year. Newly announced acts also include Susanne Sundfør, whose mix of electronic pop and folk has made her one of Norway’s biggest stars; Welsh nurse turned critically acclaimed pop powerhouse Kelly Lee Owens; and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, the indie Australian outfit who are spending 2018 touring with Boy Azooga and Stella Donnelly.
