Kraftwerk, Beach House and Metronomy have been announced as headliners for Green Man 2022 – see the line-up so far below.

The festival, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, will return to the Brecon Beacons in Wales between August 18-21. Last September, it was confirmed that Michael Kiwanuka would top the bill.

Today (February 10) organisers have unveiled a wave of new acts, including the remaining three headliners.

Kraftwerk will make their debut appearance at Green Man this summer. They join the likes of Bicep, Parquet Courts, Kae Tempest, Dry Cleaning, Ezra Furman, Cate Le Bon and Black Country, New Road on the line-up.

Beach House, who release their new album ‘Once Twice Melody’ next Friday (February 18), are also set to deliver a “career-spanning” headline performance at Green Man 2022. Taking the fourth top spot is Metronomy, whose seventh record ‘Small World’ is also out on February 18.

Elsewhere on the bill are Alex G, Arab Strap, Viagra Boys, The Murder Capital, Torres, Pip Blom and Ty Segall & Freedom Band. Organisers promise that “plenty more” acts will be announced across all stages “over the coming months”.

“We’re so excited about Green Man’s 20th birthday, and we’re planning to celebrate his big anniversary with lots of wonderful surprises and the best party ever!” festival boss Fiona Stewart said in a statement previously.

Kraftwerk are also scheduled to headline London’s Field Day this summer alongside The Chemical Brothers. The event, which celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2022, champions electronic dance music as part of All Points East.

Green Man Festival 2021 was headlined by Mogwai, Caribou and Fontaines D.C. Its 202o edition was cancelled due to the COVID pandemic.
