Cymru comes to the capital this May bank holiday weekend (25th-29th May). Green Man Festival will be bringing a taste of Wales to London’s King’s Cross in the form of mini-festival ‘Courtyard’. It has been revealed that endearing country-led indie band Pinegrove will be topping the bill. Also playing over the course of the weekend are Swedish prog band Dungen, a firm Green Man favourite, and left-wing art pop band Dutch Uncles.
Joining the bands will be Bill Ryder-Jones, founding member of The Coral and DJ Huw Stephens,
BILL RYDER-JONES (Sat), CHELOU (Mon), DUNGEN (Sun), DUTCH UNCLES (Sat), GORDI (Sat), HANNAH PEEL (Mon), HUW STEPHENS(Fri), JOSEFIN ÖHRN + THE LIBERATION (Sun), MAUNO (Sun), MOLLY BURCH (Sun), PINEGROVE (Thurs), THE PROPER ORNAMENTS (Sat), ROZI PLAIN (Sat), SLUG (Sat), THROWS [with BARTONAR, Male choir of Kaffibarinn Reykjavík] (Sun).
Alongside the indie-led line-up, there will be a daily twmpath (a traditional Welsh knees-up) to add to the festivities. Of course, no self-respecting Welsh party would be complete without fantastic food and drink. From Welsh beer and cider, to The Grazing Shed’s ‘super tidy’ burgers, to Ffwarnes’s homemade pizzas, there will be something for everyone. With many acts still to be announced, this is set to be a truly fantastic weekend.
