Green Man 2022


Recommended Posts

I've got tickets for next year. I'd love to see War On Drugs back. They headlined last time I went and rounded off the Sunday very well. Belle and Sebastian look to be doing stuff next year so those two would be my dream headliners and then someone else. I'd like Four Tet but I don't know what he's doing.

Keg were fantastic I thought. Stick them on the rising stage please!!  Lounge Society don’t do much for me. 

Seeing Legss and Butch Kassidy at the Windmill soon - hoping both are at Green Man next year as well! 

I really enjoyed Keg too, but The Lounge Society blew me away last night. Way, way better than their set at GM this year and very high up in my all time list. I'd nearly written them off, but glad I gave them another chance! 

I think we're probably going to be at the same Legss gig too. I caught Butch Kassidy earlier in the year at the Windmill and was expecting them to pop up at GM this year, but they fell just short in Rising. I think in a normal year, they'd have still played on the Rising Stage, if it didn't have slightly more established acts than usual.

I’m glad you enjoyed it!!  I saw lots of people near the front having a great time - including Dan Carey.  You must have been one of them!

Haha, yes! I was the tall guy with a mini backpack moshing with Dan and his group😂. He's like a drunk teenager at gigs, but with a ridiculously infectious positive energy. I'm normally on the edge of the rowdy section at gigs, but couldn't resist fully joining in last night.

I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Self Esteem headlined next year given her audience and trajectory. 

Wouldn't have thought they'd have someone go from headlining Far Out to headlining Mountain in consecutive years with the same set. Also you'd be relying on her to keep that trajectory going for the best part of a year.

Why the same set when there's a new album in between?

She played 4 or 5 tracks from it.

Don't expect her to be at GM again so soon but she's definitely on the right trajectory (and fuckin good for her!)

Must just be me that finds Self Esteem a bit meh?

Talk of her headlining seems a bit far fetched to me with the fact the oversees bands will be back.

I've caught her three times at Festivals in recent years. First time was alright - a bit of fun, a novelty. Second was boring and seemed formulaic, the opposite of what the project was supposed to be. Third time, there was nothing else on but I still left after 15 minutes.

Personally, I see her as a pop act suited to Latitude or the like rather than GM / EotR.

Ty Segall and Meatbodies are both in Europe at GM time. 

Yes please to both of them with bells on. Ty Segall was a cancelled 2020 booking so would make sense if he was booked for 2022.

Must be highly likely - along with Parquet Courts and Sandy Alex G who are also playing in Europe at GM time.

Going by this six of the eleven songs she did are on the album: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/self-esteem/2021/glanusk-park-crickhowell-wales-b8c9572.html  But even if she hadn't played anything I 99.9% doubt she'd be back so soon.

EOTR had Arlo Parks and Little Simz play this year having been announced for 2020, along with the likes of the NiNE8 Collective and Girl Ray (whose 2019 last album was openly influenced by Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Haim) - and GM for some reason had one of Simz' singles as an IG Story.

Unfortunately clashing with the exchange programme i'm doing with University next year, so looking to sell my 2 settlers pass tickets. 1 adult and 1 student. Can anyone advise the best way to go about this? Does Green Man have an official resale site? Thanks in advance! x

The Tallest Man On Earth, slowthai [UK], Black Country, New Road [UK], Margo Price [US], Bright Eyes [US] and Anaïs Mitchell [US]

All in Sweden the weekend before. 

Bright Eyes is EOTR-bound and I suspect Anais Mitchell will be too as her two announced UK dates are August 31st and September 1st. Still don't understand why we single out UK acts as if that weekend is the only time they're going to be near the UK.

Margo Price would get a big thumbs up from me. Midwest Farmer's Daughter is a sublime album and a few tracks off that would go down a storm.

Any indication yet that Spiritualized are touring following the album annoucnement?

Would love an evening of them and Low on the Far Out. 

They've got a tour announced today for start of May, finishing at the Roundhouse on the 10th so certainly a name to put in the ring. Would love them in the Far Out!
