Robert Plant And Joanna Newsom Go Green

Joanna Newsom and Robert Plant have been confirmed as the first two headline acts for this year’s Green Man Festival, which takes place in August.

The festival, now in its fifth year, is located in the magical setting of the Brecon Beacons, in Powys, Wales from August 17-19.

Uncut’s favourite harpist, the acclaimed Joanna Newsom, will perform her spell-binding narratives on Friday August 17 – her third time at the event.

Legendary Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant plays the festival for the first time, headlining Saturday August 18. Plant’s affinity with Wales is well known, as are the folk roots of his music.

More acts are to be confirmed soon, although tickets are on sale now.
Weekend tickets including camping are £98. Under 12s are free.
