Sharon Van Etten has said that she has 'no idea' what she's doing when it comes to playing festival sets.

The singer-songwriter will appear at Green Man festival this weekend. "I really have no idea what I'm doing," she has told The Guardian. "It's the type of performing where you really see who you connect with and I haven't figured it out yet. I'm still not used to playing festivals. At a venue, I think people are there to see me, to listen and maybe feel a little bit. Rather than them getting wasted [like festival-goers], it's more wine-drunk – let's all get sad together! – but in a good way."

Sharon Van Etten will headline her own shows in the UK this November. The shows will come as part of a wider world tour and see the singer-songwriter playing Manchester Cathedral on November 24, then Glasgow Art School on November 25 and Birmingham Library on November 26.

In May Sharon Van Etten released her latest LP 'Are We There', the follow-up to her 2012 album 'Tramp'. Speaking to NME previously about the album, she revealed: "I'm less censored every time I do a record. I'm like, 'I think this is OK. I don't think I'm freaking out. The only one I'm freaking out is me.' This is really intense stuff to write and sing about."
