You know Greenman turns 15 this year, right?
Everything’s coming together in the run up to our massive mountainous birthday bash, and these new additions to our line-up are set to make it even moreSPECTACULAR!
We’re overflowing with excitement about our THURSDAY NIGHT headliners, the almighty RIDE. The shoegaze LEGENDS will be blowing FAR OUT away with their dreamy alt-rock soundscapes, fresh from the release of 'Weather Diaries' – their first album in 21 years. We can't wait to see what they've got up their sleeves! They played their first show in fifteen years last year, we couldn’t be more happy to finally welcome Lift To Experience!
Elsewhere on our line-up, psych yourself for the psychedelic garage rock of ALLAH-LAS, the lo-fi indie-pop of Spanish quartet HINDS and the late-night hypnotic electro beats of DANIEL AVERY. PLUS we've bagged D.D DUMBO, CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON, THE MATTSON 2 and a whole host of other Green Man delights. They join our already MASSIVE line-up alongside PJ HARVEY, RYAN ADAMS, FUTURE ISLANDS and THE SHINS.
It's going to be the biggest party the Black Mountains has ever seen... You’re very welcome.
