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

😒 not really to my taste.. will dig through the undercard but might be EOTR for me if I can get those dates off work

It looks like a rehash of other recent lineups and little that inspired.
Nonetheless is solid.

Pretty decent. Headliners are underwhelming but I think thats just because they've been blatantly obvious for ages we just didn't want to believe it :P 

Nobody on there screaming out After Dark? Little Dragon are terrible live so that's a bit of an annoying one...

Thundercat? Obviously there's announcements still to come but him/them late with Parquet Courts, Ty Segall and Black Midi reads like a Far Out headline set. That said, I know they rarely share acts with anyone else but ArcTanGent the same weekend just announced Swans.

Thundercat and Goldfrapp look like the subs to me. I'd be surprised if Black Midi were a second stage headliner at this point but they could be a good shout for After Dark actually thinking about it.

I like it. But that's probably because I haven't been doing these fests for long so while it may seem samey to a lot of you, for me there's a lot of acts I've been wanting to see 

 

Still not 100% convinced though

Think I've only ever listened to albums by 4 of the artists on the bill - Kiwanuka, This Is The Kit, Sudan Archives and LUMP - so I've got a lot of discovering to do.

Starting with Little Dragon this morning.

Loads of good stuff there for someone who's not heard most of the bands.

For a GM regular (not that I am one) I'd say it seems very samey.

And Little Dragon above Goldfrapp??

I've heard the odd track from quite a number of them but just never invested much time. I can see why people may seem disappointed as they are names I've seen on a lot of lineups over the years.

Forgot Goldfrapp, make that 5 of the acts I've listened to albums of.

It's missing that 'wow'/comeback act - so for example Stereolab or Eels last year or Bright Eyes at EOTR. Hopefully someone like that is to come in the next announcement. 

Can anyone remember when it sold out last year?

Who did (%£ refer to as a clue in the end? Still don't get it! Otoboke Beaver??

If it was (and I'm not buying that whole cowboy hat emoji thing because that was posted before they started giving clues) it means that of the acts GM gave a definite clue about the highest placed is on the eighth line of the graphic.

There's lots of acts there to draw me in, but it's not mind-blowing up top. Pretty solid announcement, I'd say. 

Excited to see lots of acts who'll be new to me live. Namely Michael Kiwanuka, Goldfrapp, Thundercat, Ty Segall, Nadine Shah, Moon Duo, The Murder Capital, Viagra Boys, Tropical Fuck Storm, John and I'm sure plenty of others I'm yet to discover.

From lower down the undercard, I recommend Working Men's Club, Porridge Radio, Sinead O'Brien and Lazarus Kane. 

Looking again as I wrote that, it's damn strong already!

The cowboy emoji could well have been reference to Mac Demarco, with his last album titled 'here comes the cowboy'.

well they'd be consistent at least - tropical fuck storm, vanishing twin etc.
