Villagers, These New Puritans, The Big Moon, Lamb, Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert, Snapped Ankles and Self Esteem are some of the new additions to the now-sold out 2019 Green Man festival.

The event is ready for the Brecon Beacons between August 15th-18th and has the likes of Father John Misty, Sharon Van Etten, Broken Social Scene, Car Seat Headrest, Stella Donnelly, Avi Buffalo and Stealing Sheep long confirmed on its bill, while Idles are well placed on the line-up after the release of their landmark album Joy As An Act Of Resistance last year.

“The biggest surprise is that in a very cynical world we’ve had such a positive reaction,” Joe Talbot told Live4ever of it. “Not in terms of, ‘your album’s really good’, more like they’ve reacted positively as people to our positive message, or our positive outlook.”

“Often positive outlooks or positive attitudes are reacted to with awful cynicism. Not just cynicism, that’s not awful, cynicism is often pragmatic, but just people being arseholes for the sake of it. But we’ve actually had a really positive reaction to it. It’s been a very compassionate exchange, and that’s a massive surprise.”
