Green Man Festival announces their Thursday night headliners!


It’s the Green Man Festival’s 15th year and we can’t wait to join in on the party!

We’re hugely excited about Green Man’s Thursday night headliners, the almighty Ride. The shoegaze Legends will be at the Far Out tent with their dreamy alt-rock soundscapes, fresh from the release of ‘Weather Diaries’ – their first album in 21 years. They played their first show in fifteen years last year, Green Man couldn’t be more happy to finally welcome Lift To Experience!

Elsewhere on the line-up, psych yourself for the psychedelic garage rock of Allah-Las, the lo-fi indie-pop of Spanish quartet HINDS and the late-night hypnotic electro beats of Daniel Avery. Plus D.D Dumbo, Charlotte Day Wilson, The Mattson 2 and a whole host of other Green Man delights. They join Green Man’s line-up alongside PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams, Future Islands and The Shins.

By night, the Far Out area will become a utopia of otherworldly pleasures, courtesy of Green Man’s pals at Chair Wallahs. Mercury-nominated cosmic jazz trio The Comet Is Coming, poet, novelist, musician and lecturer described as the leader of the black avant-garde in Britain Anthony Joseph, the return of genre-defying noisemakers Broken Brass Ensemble and infectious West African vibes from Ghana via Sheffield 9-piece K.O.G. & The Zongo Brigade are among the performers set to rock your world after dark. Diplomats of Sound will also be DJing between a further 35 plus acts!
