Notts grot-rap nabobs Sleaford Mods join PJ Harvey and Ryan Adams on the bill at Green Man Festival in August. Proof if any were needed that MOJO’s favourite blowout of forward-thinking rock et cetera (in August, in the Brecon Beacons) isn’t all arboreal singer-songwriters, art-rock, folk and psych (although there’s the usual, reliable portions of the above).
Also announced today for the Aug 17-20 hootenanny are fastidious US indie legends The Shins, UK street poet Kate Tempest, mindblowing garage-psych explorers Thee Oh Sees, sui generis pop genius Daniel Johnston, national treasure of English folk Shirley Collins, the ever-unpredictable Julian Cope and the outstanding singer-songwriter of the moment, Nadia Reid.
Also joining Green Man’s line-up today…
Julie Byrne, Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit, Liars, This Is Not This Heat, Roni Size (DJ), Fruit Bats, Anna Meredith, Yorkston Thorne Khan, Pictish Trail, Andy Shauf, Moddi, Pumarosa, Moses Boyd, Holly Macve, Aldous Harding, Circulus, Charlie Cunningham, Happyness, Kikagaku Moya, Warm Digits, Benedict Benjamin, Nathan Ball, Jim Gehdi, Lice, Aled Rheon, H.Grimace, Gintis, and GospelbeacH.
