MOGWAI NAMED AS FINAL HEADLINER FOR GREEN MAN FESTIVAL 2012
They join co-headliners Van Morrison and Feist in Wales’ breathtaking Black Mountains from August 16-19. Other new additions include Crybaby, Withered Hand, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Lower Dens, King Charles, Cate Le Bon, Mr Scruff and James Blake.
Formed in 1995 in Glasgow, Mogwai are famed for performing lengthy instrumentals with melodic bass lines, dynamic contrasts and heavy use of distortion and effects pedals. From classic debut Mogwai Young Team to supporting the Pixies and composing the soundtrack to a film about Zinedine Zidane, this is a band that never rests on its laurels.
Whilst the festival is 100% independent, it still draws a stellar line up of performers each year, spanning the music spectrum- including indie, psychedelia, Americana and folk, as well as DJs playing everything from dub-reggae to electro and stoner rock. There’s also 24hr Bars, Comedy, Cinema, literature, Einstein’s Garden, Nature & Nurture, Future Generations, and many, many more magical surprises to make sure you have the most magical weekend of your year
