The Green Man Festival beckons for Mowbird & Andy Hickie
This year the Green Man once again nods his (rather large) head towards Wrexham.
Local surf-punk slackers Mowbird are set to play the new Swn stage on Friday 17th August.
Stalwart of the Wrexham scene Andy Hickie will also be playing at the festival in the intimate setting of Einstein’s Garden.
The Green Man Festival takes place from 17 – 19th August at Glanusk Park within the awesome Black Mountains. The headliners at this year’s festival are Mogwai, Van Morrison and Feist.
They will be joined by a whole host of acts including the brilliant King Creosote & Jon Hopkins, Slow Club, The Walkmen, The Pictish Trail and a very welcome UK appearance by Damien Jurado. Also on the bill are band of the moment Alt J.
Mowbird and Andy Hickie join a growing list of familiar local names to have played at the Green Man Festival.
Last year Meilir played sets on both the Green Man Pub stage and Einstein’s Garden (which we witnessed and confirm was something special). In previous years local bands Camera and Gwildor have also played at the festival.
The Green Man has a history of selling out well in advance in recent years – so don’t take any chances if you intend on showing your support. Tickets are (at the time of writing) still available, but are running low.
Tickets for the festival are available here and are priced at £145.
Those going to this year’s Green Man are in for a treat as (after saving the day at last years wrexhammusic.co.uk Christmas Spruce) we can safely say that Mowbird are nothing short of spectacular live! For more information about Mowbird visit their Bandcamp page here.
Andy Hickie’s debut album ‘I’d Rather Be Rambling’ is out now. For more information about Andy visit his website here.
We hope to have a full review of both Mowbird and Andy Hickie’s sets after the festival.
We also intend to be tweeting like deranged kestrels over the weekend so keep your eyes peeled!
