Independent ever since it's inauguration in 2003, Green Man Festival's eclectic, alternative approach to curation ensures anticipation for their annual lineup reveal is rife once festival season rears it's head.

Brecon Beacon's mainstay festival Green Man has revealed their 1st phase lineup for 2020's edition, and it's as impressive as you'd expect.

Headlining the iconic Welsh festival this year is Michael Kiwanuka, Caribou, Mac DeMarco, and Little Dragon.

It's shaping up to be a landmark year for Kiwanuka having received several BRITS nominations for recent album KIWANUKA, whereas ever-evolving electronic polymath Dan Snaith aka Caribou returns with a new album next month, the first since 2015's Our Love. Mac DeMarco joins them at the festival's summit alongside Little Dragon, ensuring it's debut headline performances across the board.

Further down the bill, Goldfrapp, Thundercat, Anges Obel, Parquet Courts (for a UK festival exclusive), Ty Segall & Freedom Band, Black Midi, Shame, and Lucinda Williams lead the foremost names heading to the Wales in August.

With more names still to come, it seems the annual anticipation is somewhat justified.

Green Man Festival 2020 takes place on 20-23 August. For the full lineup, check here.
