King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard join Fleet Foxes and The War On Drugs as headliners in the second wave of the line-up.
Aussie psych-rock royalty King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are well-known for their energetic and quirky live shows, coupled with a prolific work rate since they formed back in 2012. Releasing five albums last year alone (yes, five!) and another record already in the works for 2018, they’re topping it all off with an appearance at this years Green Man Festival.
Joining them at the Green Man table is singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus, following the release of her Historian LP, covering everything from toxic relationships to tackling the anxiety and uncertainty of mortality. Dacus’ brand of indie-rock is one of honesty and emotional openness, not to mention both artfully delicate and comfortably riotous.
The Brecon Beacons will also play host to DJ Floating Points, whose nu-house bangers include influences from soul, jazz and classical music, refashioned and reworked into powerhouses of danceable sonic brilliance. Techno pioneers Simian Mobile Disco join the bill too, alongside Scandi-pop songstress Susanne Sundfør.
Other highlights from the second wave of the line-up include Cardiff’s surreal pop singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon, Baltimore’s “earnest folk” indie-rock duo Wye Oak who will be celebrating the release of their upcoming album The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs in April, and Hackney’s all-female Deep Throat Choir.
