Belle & Sebastian, James Blake and Wild Beasts set to headline this year's edition of the Brecon Beacons-based festival

The first names for this year’s Green Man have now been announced with Belle & Sebastian, James Blake and Wild Beasts all confirmed as headliners.

Also among those confirmed today to play are Battles, Julia Holter, Michael Rother, Fat White Family, Floating Points, White Denim, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jason Isbell, Cate Le Bon, Miracle Legion, Ezra Furman, Songhoy Blues and Jagwar Ma. Green Man takes place in the idyllic surroundings of the Brecon Beacons from August 18-21. To check the full line-up as it stands and get tickets, click here. Last year The Quietus left Green Man after a drawing class full of praise, thus: "We leave with the sense that this kind of activity is as much a part of Green Man's mission as any amount of folk twanging or psych riffing – a rare separator between this festival and its similarly orientated cousins like End of the Road and Latitude."
