Here’s everything you need to know about who’s playing, when it’s taking place and how to get tickets.

Who is headlining at Green Man 2020?

The independent music and arts festival has been held annually since its launch in 2003, and attracts more than 25,000 music fans every year. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Black Mountains, with the river Usk flowing around its perimeter, the festival welcomes an impressive line-up of performers year on year.

And 2020 promises to be no different, with Green Man announcing its line-up for the summer this morning (29 Jan), confirming Michael Kiwanuka as this year’s headliner.

Kiwanuka’s second album, Love and Hate, debuted at number one in the UK albums chart, while his hit song Cold Little Heart is well-known for being the opening theme of the HBO television series, Big Little Lies.
