Green Man 2020


Recommended Posts

I think The Big Moon are likely to return, big year for them and with Juliette's onstage proposal last year I'm sure it will be high up their priority list for favourite festivals! Thinking about albums due for release this year, Laura Marling? Mystery Jets is a good shout.

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

This would of course be much easier after the EoTR announcement, but why the heck not have a go now! OK, people have beaten me to some of these, but here are my 10 predictions. There are lots from last year's Rising I'd like to see promoted (BCNR, Porridge Radio, Pozi, Peaness, Oscar Lang, Scalping, Dry Cleaning, Just Mustard) too, but have left them out along with my dream big names and headliners and gone for acts who as far as I can tell have never played GM (at least in their current guise):

  • Warmduscher
  • Working Men's Club
  • Pom Poko
  • Pip Blom
  • LIFE
  • SOAK
  • Taylor Skye
  • William Doyle
  • Fontaines D.C. (granted, they are a big name now)
  • Heavy Lungs

A few for Rising:

  • Sinead O'Brien
  • Disq
  • Eyesore & The Jinx
  • Lynks Afrikka
  • Lazarus Kane
  • Tugboat Captain

Fountains D.C.

The Murder Capitol

Tash Sultana

Ren Harvieu

Kathryn Joseph

KT Tunstall

The Twilight Sad

New Order

Saving Grace (Robert Plant)

Brian Fallon

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Sorry, couldn’t resist the temptation, just dismiss this. No mistaking for Phoebe Bridgers.)

 

I’d put British Sea Power, Black Midi and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever unless they appeared at GM fairly recently (17, 17 and 18, respectively).

I feel very confident about Bikini Kill being at Green Man this year.

Hopefully we get some of the “unusual” Primavera bookings. Arthur Verocai would be amazing but probably not likely. Bauhaus and Les Savy Fav would be awesome as well. Ditto for Jawbox.

Rumour has it the EOTR headliners are Pixies, Big Thief and Bright Eyes. If thats true then I guess you lot at Green Man have Angel Olsen.

 

Edit - obvious disclaimer that this might not be true.

Ooh interesting. Where’s that come from?

Very interesting, pixies would be the only one out of the three that I would be interested in.

Someone elsewhere on the internet who claims they know from what should be a credible source.

Cool, thanks. Thought Pixies would be quite a big get for Green Man so that would be a pretty impressive booking for EOTR. The other two are great bookings in my opinion.

In fairness EOTR booked Vampire Weekend as a UK exclusive in 2018, which is huge.

The Green Man or EOTR comparisons are always interesting. For me EOTR wins because it just seems to get slightly more unusual/special bookings (e.g Mulatu Astatke, Laraaji, Bill Callahan etc), partially due to Late Junction's involvement of course. Green Man always has really solid line ups, but they don't often have that WOW factor for me, although they do often have bigger bands and in 2019 especially, had better headliners.

For sure. Was going to mention the Vampire Weekend booking in my post - EOTR definitely have a big booking in them so the Pixies booking wouldn’t surprise me although I thought they were pretty nailed on for GM given their tour dates.
 

Have you been to Green Man? I haven’t been to EOTR but have always wanted to but can’t afford both in one year sadly. Feel like the setting of GM can’t be beaten but have heard great things about the Garden Stage.

Nah I haven't, sadly. One day I will. Thus far EOTR has been better suited to my taste and geographically is a lot more convenient for me. I try limit myself to only three weekend festivals a year and they tend to be Glastonbury, End Of The Road and Primavera Sound. If the EOTR line up isnt to my liking this year, I may well go to GM for the first time.

Yeah the GM setting does seem unbeatable, but the EOTR is also very, very lovely.

I did GM for the first time last year (partly, as someone said, they had better headliners than EOTR).

Both festivals are 10/10 frankly. You can't go wrong.
