It's been a nail-biting wait for UK festivals for over a year now, but since the Welsh government recently gave larger scale events the go-ahead, Green Man Festival have revealed who's heading to the beautiful Brecon Beacons this August. 

Fontaines D.C., Mogwai, Caribou, and Little Dragon will all headline the beloved alternative festival which takes place on 19-22nd August, the latter two of which were announced to headline last year's cancelled edition. 

Caribou AKA Dan Snaith has been waiting for over a year to experience the mystique and mood of the Black Mountains' surroundings as the Friday headliner. Talking about the festival, he said: "There's a kind of magic about Green Man - both that I've experienced myself in the past and that I hear about from friends who go every year. I feel very lucky that we're going to headline this year."

After a disastrous year for live events, Fiona Stewart (Managing Director and Owner of the festival) was delighted to announce the return of Green Man: โ€œAt times it seemed like a dream that we would ever be back in the fields together, I canโ€™t tell you how much it means to me, and the thousands of people that rely upon and make Green Man happen, that itโ€™s actually going ahead.  We cannot wait to see people enjoy the festival again!"

"I am very grateful for the support of Welsh Government who gave me the confidence to run this year's festival and funding through the CRF. Green Man is an independent festival run by a small Powys company and we would have been in difficulties without this help.โ€

Other major names taking to the Mountain Stage are Thundercat, Django Django, Gruff Rhys, Nadine Shah, This Is The Kit, and The Staves, seeing Shame, Teenage Fanclub, and Jose Gonzalez all headline the Far Out Stage. 

The likes of black midi, LUMP, Viagra Boys, Porridge Radio, Goat Girl, Kelly Lee Owens, The Orielles, Greentea Peng, Nubya Garcia, Self Esteem, Katy J Pearson and heaps more will also be performing across the weekend.
