UK festival exclusive...
Patti Smith

Patti Smith is set to perform at this year's instalment of the Green Man festival.

Secluded in the hills of rural Wales, the Green Man festival is one of the summer's most unique events. Drawing in countless exclusive performances, the event has expanded its 2013 line up once again.

Former Clash Magazine cover star and all round inspiration Patti Smith is set to perform at the Welsh festival. From 'Horses' to 'Banga' the American artist has continued to break boundaries, and her live performances are nothing short of ecstatic.

Planning to drop by the Green Man Festival, the punk-poet will headline the opening night's Far Out Tent line up in a UK Festival exclusive. Elsewhere, other new additions include comedian turned Acid folk minstrel Matt Berry, Jon Langford and rising Manchester band Money.

Tickets are on sale now, with organisers retaining last year's price structure. Hell, even a pint of milk costs more now than it did last summer...

Green Man runs between August 15th - 18th.
