Green Man Festival Reveals First Wave of Artists for 2023

Ready for its 21st year in the worldly surroundings of Brecon Beacons, Wales, Green Man Festival returns 17th – 20th August 2023, and here is their first wave line-up.

Claiming the top spots of this talent-packed roster are First Aid Kit, Devo and Spiritualized, as Amyl & The Sniffers, Young Fathers, Slowdive, Confidence Man, The Walkmen, and Goat get ready to warm up the grass beforehand at Wales’ biggest music, science and art festival of the year. 

Compiled of 10 individual areas, the magic of Green Man is found in its championing of diverse activities and events that surround the much-anticipated performers. Witness beaming art installations, an Ancient-Egypt-themed exploration area, a relaxation/workshop space, and an engaging science area named Einstein’s Garden.

Finally, if staying up to the early hours is more your bag, renowned British producer DJ Daniel Avery, one of the most important names in techno, will be awake to keep the party going through the night.
