Headlining on the Sunday night will be the spellbinding St Vincent! This unique and dynamic performer is sure to take our breath away on the magical Mountain Stage! Joining St V as headliners (Friday) are the wonderful Hot Chip– they will be detailing a decade’s worth of magnificent music through their always-stunning live show.
Also appearing… Goat, the Swedish purveyors of experimental psych-rock, legendary Arizonian’s Calexico, who release their ninth studio album this April, and the constantly sublime, singularly captivating, Father John Misty. Danish alt-rockers Mew will bring their magical live show to the Black Mountains alongside the stirring indie-folk of The Staves, whose new Bon Iver-produced album looks set to take 2015 by storm.
Legendary American funk/soul singer Charles Bradley will supply the festival with a hearty dose of rhythm-and-blues, while a performance from the incredible Sun Ra Arkestra promises to be one of this year’s stand-out live moments.
Elsewhere, there is snarling psych-rock courtesy of Leeds’ Hookworms, razor-sharp pop from Australia’s Courtney Barnett (UK festival exclusive), and the enthralling electronic patterns of Son Lux, who will all take their place alongside the likes of Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve, The Wave Pictures, Owen Pallett, Viet Cong, Waxahatchee and many more!
A Note From Green Man’s Director Fiona Stewart:
“Green Man is ever evolving and there are loads of new things for 2015. Music will always be at the heart of the festival but the other areas have developed incredibly to become more than a side show and into stand alone events in their own right. So you will find a literature and comedy festival, family festival, holiday festival, science festival, food festival, dance festival, film festival, beer festival and arts festival as part of Green Man. I think that’s why people of all ages and interests go – people have the freedom to create whatever festival experience they want.”
