Alabaster Deplume is definitely one of my 'finds' so far too, along with Otoboke Beaver and KOKOROKO. I also had no idea who LUMP were until now.

Oh yeah me neither with LUMP! Really enjoying that album and hoping they’re going to release more stuff this year.

Big fan of Otoboke Beaver, will be lots of fun! 

I struggle to get into bands like KOKOROKO! on record but I imagine they’ll be good live!

So I could never get into Thundercat that much on record but I’ve been watching a lot of live videos recently and my god, the man is incredible!

The drummer and the keyboardist are insane as well - definitely a must see for me now!

I saw thundercat at field day a couple of years ago and it was very forgettable

First female / female led headliner since PJ at Green Man. Last year’s decision not to headline Sharon was quite bizarre.

To be fair I don’t think she was big enough. She was in the perfect slot in my opinion.

The floods in Crickhowell look horrible. The A40 is closed there due to the weather. I wonder how much of Glanusk Park is underwater?

The Glanusk estate Twitter says there are "disruptions" on the land and fallen trees in the area. Damage to the roads around the site will likely be the longer-term problem - this is the road that the entrance is on and I think this part is the bridge on the right as you approach from the A40/A465.

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 money I think. Such a nice town.

It's a yearly tradition for us to go get food from the bridge end at Saturday lunch time. The walk along the river really helps clear the hangover and is one of the highlights of my year.

Yeah that sounds great. I had plans to walk up the mountain behind the main stage on Friday morning and then have lunch/pint at the Bridge Inn but sadly didn't happen - this year!

Soulwax just announced for Paredes De Coura. It'd be pretty dreamy if they played Green Man. 

Oooh, them doing one of the late night Far Our slots would be amazing.

GM have started following The Fiery Furnaces on twitter. 

They've just announced their first show in nine years this week at Pitchfork Music Festival. Eleanor Friedberger, one half of the Fiery Furnaces, played GM in 2018. 

Might be a possibility for the next announcement - would be an interesting booking!

Anyone know anything about the band called Caroline? Can’t find anything online about them beyond a similar description to the one on GM’s page - but the description sounds like something I’m going to really like.

Here you go mate. Signed to Rough Trade, it seems.

Thanks so much hadn’t seen this! I’d see they were supporting Lankum this year so had expected something like this though I had originally imagined something a bit more “rockier”.

Sounds pretty cool though. Love the video.

I would think so - it has been for a few years now I think - to mark St. David’s Day

That’s a Sunday this year though. Would they still do it on a Sunday?
