Nestled amongst the picturesque Brecon Beacons in Wales you’ll find yourself one of Great Britain’s best kept festival secrets: Green Man. The August weekender has long been a catalyst for the increased growth of beautiful indie and raucous garage rock, gaining new prominence in the last few years as the likes of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, PJ Harvey and Future Islands topped its billings. This year’s larger than life line-up boasts another exquisite array of artists, among them headliners Yo La Tengo, Four Tet and Father John Misty. Jan Rijk spent the weekend in Wales, and here’s the first half of what he returned with.
