Four Tet, and Dirty Three, are two of the new acts added to the line-up for this year's The Green Man Festival.

Also confirmed today are Grizzly Bear, The Phantom Band, Unicorn Kid, Vetiver, Andrew Bird, Beth Jeans Houghton, and The Leisure Society.

The Green Man Festival also gathered five Druids fresh from the annual Stonehenge gathering last Friday. They marked the first day of spring with an ancient blessing at the Green Man festival site in Wales. Rollo Maughfling, Archdruid of Glastonbury and Stonehenge, said: "We performed a genuine Druids' blessing ceremony to celebrate the Spring Equinox, bless the Green Man Festival site, and the Green Man Festival itself in August. At Green Man's request we extended the blessing to include other festivals, so they are sunny and warm too."

Fiona Stewart, Green Man Director said "It's a tradition that we have a site visit at the start of spring and sample the first cider of the season. This time we thought why not go one further and organise some really scorching weather. This blessing will bring guaranteed sunshine to all festivals this summer - it's amazing no-one's ever thought of doing this before."

The latest names join the line-up of confirmed acts including Wilco, Bon Iver, Wooden Shjips, British Sea Power, Errors, Peggy Sue, Megson, Pivot, It's A Buffalo, She Keeps Bees, Golden Animals, 6 Day Riot, No Thee No Ess, The Soundcarriers, Martin Carr, Beach House, Peter Broderick, and others. Also appearing will be The Amorphous Androgynous (AKA Future Sound Of London) taking you on a Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Exploding In Your Mind for 7 hours of live acts and DJs.

An adult weekend camping ticket is priced at £115 for the weekend. Weekend teenager tickets (ages 13-17 years) are priced at £50, with children aged 12 and under free. All teenagers and children must be accompanied by a ticket playing adult. Live-in vehicles are an additional £35, and car park tickets are priced at £5.
