Last couple of years they've announced 2/3 of the headliners with the third coming later on. They have announced all headliners in previous versions though so it's not a strict rule. 

First announcement last year contained most of the bigger acts but some were still announced later on (e.g. Eels and Yo La Tengo). 

The quantity of acts announced in the first announcement also varies quite a bit. Last year they announced pretty much double the amount of acts that were initially announced in 2018. 

Sounds good; so hopefully there should be enough there for me to decide if I want to go again or not?

Green Man Festival 2020 Playlist. This is still a work in progress. The idea is I include my three favourite songs of each act.  It's ordered in terms of my personal preference but I've also

Looks awful. That pub by the bridge - The Bridge End I think - was badly flooded not that long ago as well.  Important for GM attendees to visit the town during the festival and spend a bit of mo

Probably. Although in 2018 the first announcement wasn't that great for me but then the next two were and I bought my ticket on that basis. 

The second announcement is usually 1st March (St David's Day) and tickets are unlikely to have sold out before that so you'll probably be able to find out some more acts in addition to the initial acts that are announced before having to decide.

Aye but would rather get it booked sooner so I can book time off and make plans.

Chances are I'll go to this and/or End of the Road anyway; really the main issue is convincing people to come with or at least finding some kind of solo group 😅

Suede have just been announced for Oya. I feel like they're discussed as a possibility every year so lets keep that ball rolling... 

Seem likely. I mean they're doing festivals and I can't think of many they would do here. All Points East perhaps?

I think they’d be more likely to turn up at something like Victorious or even The Big Feastival in August than Green Man.

About £220 I think with settlers 

I paid just under £290 for my early bird with Settlers and Car Park. The dreaded booking & shipment fees added up to over £25, which is effing ridiculous.  Settlers Car Park was £30, and I think Settler's itself was maybe £60.  Last year I didn't do Settlers and I paid £212 for my early bird with Car Park.

Woah... that feels like a bit of a price hike l, unless I really wasn’t paying attention last year (seems unlikely)! I had in my head about £180 plus £40 but hadn’t included car park, fees or apparently a few years of settlers price hikes

If Bright Eyes were at this, do you think they'd headline?

Conor Obest played 3rd down on the Mountain Stage in 2017 for reference. 

Hmmm potentially, I don’t think people would be too bothered if they did

I think they'd probably sub? Its an impossible one to call really given they haven't played here, or anywhere, for ages. They don't strike me as the type of band that can go around demanding headline positions just because they've reformed, certainly not as events this size anyway.

Some recommendations from Rockaway Beach this weekend that I feel would go down well at Green Man: LIFE, International Teachers of Pop and Eyesore & The Jinx. 

I feel that International Teachers of Pop would be perfect in an early Thursday slot to get people in the mood, just as audiobooks were billed in '19.

edit: just checked the Clashfinder and they played exactly that slot in 2018! I didn't realise they went back so far as a side-project.

I might be biased as I love Conor Oberst, but in my mind they're a bigger draw than Sharon Van Etten or Father John Misty.

Maybe a Thursday headliner if not?

Yeah I'd be pretty happy. Especially if the rumour of Phoebe Bridgers playing is true. Hopefully they'd share a stage and do some Better Oblivion Community centre stuff.

Pigsx7 were on with Marc Riley last night. He asked them about festivals and they said they have a few booked in but didn't think they could announce them yet. They played last year but have a new album on the way so could be a possibility. They also namechecked Green Man as one of their highlights of 2019.
