2018 Lineup: The War on Drugs, Fleet Foxes, John Grant, Grizzly Bear & MorePosted Thu 25 Jan. 2018

Following on from year's extra-special 15th anniversary, we're delighted to announce our first wave of acts who'll be storming the stage in the Black Mountains, deep in the heart of the Brecon Beacons 16-19 August 2018...

Having last graced the stage back in 2009, we're thrilled to welcome back Seattle’s FLEET FOXES, a band that has grown into one of the most prestigious in the world; Robin Pecknold’s songwriting finding new and ever-inventive ways to try and figure out this thing we call life. Alongside them, THE WAR ON DRUGS make their much-anticipated return - their classic rock canon well and truly in tow - fresh from releasing their wonderful fourth album, A Deeper Understanding, last summer.

Alongside that formidable double-header, Green Man is honoured to welcome the incomparable JOHN GRANT back to the Brecon Beacons for the first time since 2010, an artist who, both with his work with The Czars and subsequent solo releases, has proven himself to be a true and genuine one-of-a-kind; as have GRIZZLY BEAR, whose fifth album, Painted Ruins, was their most thrilling and inventive to-date, beautifully showcasing their development over the past decade and more.

Also appearing in 2018, JANE WEAVER brings her warped and wonderful cosmological psych-pop, following the release of her magnificent seventh album, Modern Kosmology; DIRTY PROJECTORS will supply brooding art-rock mastery, alongside PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING who return with their concept album based on the Welsh mining industry; MOUNT KIMBIE promise to enthral with their dense electronica, and PHOEBE BRIDGERS, COURTNEY MARIE ANDREWS, and Howling Bells’ JUANITA STEIN will offer something altogether more refined and introspective.

Elsewhere, we’re delighted to welcome Japanese noise-rock maestros BO NINGEN, who, alongside the infamous BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE, will turn up the heat with their electrifying live shows; while KEVIN MORBY returns with his mystical rock and roll, as well SHANNON LAY whose mesmerising 2017 LP was the first release on Morby’s own record label.

Plus plenty more amazing acts (including a thumping programme for the After Dark) to be announced. And all of this can be washed down with over 99 beers & ciders fresh from the The Courtyard, or followed up with some side-splitting comedy in Last Laugh or discovering something curious in Einstein’s Garden as well as tonnes for kids and teens in Little Folk and Somewhere. We cannot wait see your faces in the Brecon Beacons...

LOVE, GM
