Welsh event grabs electronic guru

Welsh wyrd folk event Green Man has added to its already sterling bill with electronic wizard Four Tet set to stun fans.

Held beneath the famous Black Mountains at Brecon Beacons in Wales, the organisers of Green Day leave nothing to chance. With rain affecting many festival goers at last year's event, five pagan Druids were brought in to ensure a summer scorcher by performing a ceremony near the Spring equinox.

Fiona Stewart, Green Man Director said "it's a tradition that we have a site visit at the start of spring and sample the first cider of the season. This time we thought why not go one further and organise some really scorching weather?"

Gathering over 100 acts across five stages, Green Man can boast a bill packed with special performances. This year's headliners will include local heroes Super Furry Animals, Bon Iver, British Sea Power and more.

Joining the fun will be electronic star Four Tet. One of the most renowned producers in the UK, Kieran Hebden almost single handedly invented the folktronica genre before turning back towards the techno that initially inspired him.

Also recently added the bill are Grizzly Bear, Scottish newcomers The Phantom Band, Unicorn Kid, The Dirty Three and many more.

The Green Man festival takes place between August 21st - 23rd.
