Midlake, John Cale and Swans are amongst the latest additions for this year's instalment of The Green Man.
By now quite a different festival from its roots, The Green Man remains one of the summer season's most unique events. Set in a remote Welsh valley, organisers continually produce a bill which matches big names to idiosyncratic tastes.
Band of Horses, The Horrors and more have already been confirmed, with the Green Man team announcing three new names this morning.
Experimental American collective Swans are one of the finest live bands out there, a group whose addiction to volume and thirst for new ideas makes them both a bewildering and inspiring experience. Set to perform at the Green Man, Michael Gira & Co. will no doubt unveil something very special for the festival crowd.
Elsewhere, Bella Union endorsed Midlake are due to appear while John Cale has also confirmed his involvement. Lauded for his role in The Velvet Underground, the Welsh born songwriter remains a thrilling solo performer, capable of drawing on a back catalogue which stretches across decades and disciplines.
Tickets are on sale now.
Green Man runs between August 15th - 18th.
