The highlight of the Welsh live music calendar have released details of this year’s line-up, Getintothis’ Steven Doherty has the details.
Celebrating it’s 17th year and now firmly established as Wales’ largest music festival, Green Man have released their first set of artists confirmed for this year’s shenanigans.

For the youngsters there’s Sharon Van Etten, Maribou State, Car Seat Headrest, Big Thief, Whitney, Stealing Sheep and the nation’s current sweethearts Idles.
