Beirut and Neutral Milk Hotel headlining.
Good undercard as well.
sadly this will be my first year missing it in the last 5 or 6.
such a great festival - amazing surroundings, friendly, beardy crowd. does get a bit real ale at times but that's forgivable...i'd highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't been before.
but maybe not
Green Man really have the knack of putting stuff on the main stage that I might not pay to see in town but that hits the spot at 8.25pm with a real ale in hand stuck in a field full of beardy middle-class families, while also packing the smaller stages with the oddball rock/folky stuff that butters my parsnips.
Though I did think booking the Mumfords a few years back was a step too far in a certain direction, and what I've heard of Beirut they're the Mumfords for people who think they're too edgy for the Mumfords. Will be happy to be proved wrong though.
Also, while I hate Mumfords & like Beiruts, I think what you said is funny.
aren't being shy this year are they? Never really had them down as hard touring road hogs, but they seem to be on everywhere.
grand budapest hotel is £55 a go...so...more?

We can’t wait to welcome back multi-talented Zach Condon and Beirut as they headline the Mountain Stage with BBC 6Music on Friday August 14. Their amazing 2010 set is the stuff of whispered legend among the Green Man faithful...
And what better way to close four days of five-star live music than with a Sunday headline set from Neutral Milk Hotel, one of the great US alt-rock bands of the 1990s, back together in their classic line-up led by the mercurial Jeff Magnum?
A ticket for Green Man 2014 also gives you…
Harmonies as pure as a Scandinavian stream from Swedish sisters First Aid Kit, skuzzy stoner-rock from Kurt Vile & The Violators, nocturnal atmospherics from the soon-to-be-massive Daughter, and epic raw emotion from Anna Calvi.
…not to mention…
Brooklyn indie-folk favourite Sharon Van Etten, genius cult hero Jeffry Lewis & The Jrams, blissful folktronica from Tunng and moody krautrockers Toy.
…and ALL these unbelievable bands…
I Break Horses |Ry X | Waxahatchee | Lanterns on the Lake | Fat White Family | William Tyler | Speedy Ortiz | Georgia Ruth | All We Are | Happyness | Plank! | Eaves | Sons of Noel & Adrian | John Mouse
…plus loads more acts to coming soon including the Saturday headliner!

oh wait no
Aren't Neutral Milk Hotel playing other shows that month like JABBERW[post unfinished as Barry Hogan shoots writer in face with the Wilwal gun]
line-up filling out nicely, going to finally go to this as I live nearby anyway. Belle and Sebastian accidentally put up on the website as 3rd headliner earlier as well apparently
Never been to green man, always go to end of the road. I wished I had gone for green man over eotr this year.
Very excited about the line up. Third year in a row and the strongest overall lineup of the three.
Best line-up they've had in years imho, but maybe I'm just gradually slipping further into the warm embrace of the "Green Man" demographic.
does anybody have a spare ticket/can't go? I will happily pick up from most places in the south east.
Feeling low about buyingticketsforfestivalsbeforetheysellout today.
as im job hunting and having to tell people during an interview that you're fucking off to wales for 5 days in a fortnight's time isn't great form. :(
At the moment Green man > sorting out my life, if the lineup was just a little bit worse I'd have already done it. Hm.
if i had enough disposable monies to make a really good weekend of it / not have to get a megabus there and back. but that was the uncomfortable reality of the situation
Sharon van Etten --> War on drugs --> Mercury Rev --> The Field was The Best Thing. Even Hamilton Leithauser being a bit ehh was still good.
