The headliners for Green Man Festival have been revealed

PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams and Future Islands are this year's 15th birthday leading names


Green Man Festival turns 15 this year, and to celebrate they’ve announced three big headline names.

The aficionado’s favourite will feature PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams and Future Islands in 2017, all three being summer festival exclusives in the UK.

All three are something of a coup for the relatively boutique event, especially as all three are set to release new albums this year or, in the case of Harvey, did in 2016.

The lineup continues to intrigue beyond the headliners, with the critically-adored Angel Olsen, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and The Big Moon among the announcements.

And BadBadNotGood, Michael Kiwanuka, LVL UP and Sunflower Bean are also set to appear.

There’s many more confirmed – see our full list below – and surely more to come closer to the weekend, including the to-be-confirmed Thursday headliner.

Green Man Festival takes place from 17-20 August – the same weekend as its polar opposite major V Festival – at Glanusk Park in Powys, Wales.

The lineup tends to include alternative, folk and indie acts, many from the leftfield, and a spirited community of workshops and other events.

Weekend tickets are £180 for the weekend, with camping, and drop to £155 for students.
