Another fine pile of acts have been announced for this year's Welsh extravaganza that has become the Green Man festival. The third headliners - following on from Joanna Newsom and The Flaming Lips - will be Doves, who play the main stage on Friday. At the moment they're gearing up for a release of a Best Of compilation (April 5), so expect to hear a set littered with their very best, including no fewer than three renditions of 'Here Comes The Fear'.
Also taking their place on the Green Man bill are this selection, done in rough order of preference. I joke, I joke.
These New Puritans
Erland & The Carnival
Steve Mason what used to be in The Beta Band
The Wave Pictures
Je Suis Animal
All in all that's a noteworthy set of artists joining the party, which takes place from 20-22 August 2010 in Glanusk Park, Wales, under the gaze of Sugar Loaf Mountain, something I always thought only existed in Marioland. Apparently not. Adult tickets are £120 for the whole weekend and teen tickets just £50. Tickets and more information available from here.
