Belle & Sebastian, James Blake & Wild Beasts to headline Green Man 2016Posted Tue 26 Jan. 2016

Drum roll please... Green Man 2016 has lift off.

After years spent besotted by their effortless individuality and independent spirit, it makes it all the more exciting to finally welcome the imperious Belle and Sebastian to Green Man. James Blake will once again cast his magic over the Brecon Beacons (his fourth appearance!) debuting some tracks from what we hope will be a new album for 2016 and Kendal's finest Wild Beasts return to wow us with tracks from their new album. What a treat!

Tickets available now. PLUS we've still got one more headliner to announce!

Line up (so far) in full -

Belle & Sebastian, James Blake, Wild Beasts, White Denim, Battles, Floating Points (live), Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jason Isbell, Julia Holter, Michael Rother, Floating Points, Songhoy Blues, Ezra Furman, Jagwar Ma, Cate Le Bon, Fat White Family, Miracle Legion, The Besnard Lakes, Nikki Lane, Phil Cook, Joan Shelley, Meilyr Jones, Daniel Norgren, Trader Horne, Formation, Mothers, Sunflower Bean, Kelly Lee Owens, Palace Winter, Ardyn, Deep Throat Choir.

White Denim can be relied upon to focus their energies squarely on rocking out, relationship strife told in the most feet-shaking, grin-inducing way possible with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Battles will offer even more frenzied opportunities to boogie. Quiet beauty is to be found elsewhere, in the dreamlike songwriting of critical darling Julia Holter and the guitar fuzz-filtered delicacy of Cate Le Bon.

Jason Isbell has carved his own niche in Americana. Krautrock experimentalist Michael Rother will revisit the highs charted by his legendary bands Neu! and Harmonia, while Miracle Legion will see the return of singer-songwriter Mark Mulcahy to his garage rock roots.

On a grander scale, there will be slow-rising epiphanies aplenty from Floating Points 11-piece band. Songhoy Blues jump up to the Mountain Stage this year following last years legendary performance. Ezra Furman’s endearing alt-pop and the dance pop of Jagwar Ma, meanwhile, have their own high energy appeal.

August can't come soon enough!
