Spiritualized

Brecon Beacons, Wales; August 20-22

Having started out as a very folk-centric event, Green Man has since broadened its remit into all things pleasingly psychedelic, with sets from Spiritualized, Super Furry Animals and Animal Collective gracing recent years. Its atmosphere is the perfect balance between family friendly and freaky fun, free of the picnic-blanket brigade but also without lager yobbery. Plus, the winningly Welsh setting of Glanusk Park is pretty much the most beautiful place it’s possible to watch music in the UK, and to increase the wonder, The Flaming Lips, Beirut, Fuck Buttons and These New Puritans are going to be making us all happy to be alive. And this isn’t some standard ‘isn’t music pretty great?’ happiness, this is some solid-gold ‘I never want to leave here, please scatter my ashes in the Brecon Beacons’ beatific joy as ‘Do You Realize??’ rings out.
