Reunited Super Furries to headline Green Man.

SUPER Furry Animals have been revealed as Saturday night headliners at this year's Green Man Festival.

The reunited band, who are to play a string of sold out dates in May to coincide with the re-release of a deluxe 15th anniversary edition of their Welsh language album Mwng, will top the bill on the Mountain Stage - joining previously revealed headliners St Vincent and Hot Chip at the three-day festival.

Also announced for the gathering in the Black Mountains are shoegaze pioneers Slowdive, and New York new wave legends Television - who will play their classic 1977 album Marquee Moon in full.

Public Service Broadcasting, Jamie XX and Temples are also notable additions to the second wave of Green Man announcements.

They join the likes of Goat, Father John Misty, Calexico and Courtney Barnett who will also appear at the festival, which is held in the beautiful surrounds of Glanusk Park in the Brecon Beacons.

Green Man MD Fiona Stewart said: "We've been waiting for the Furries to reform for years and we can't wait to welcome them to Wales' own Green Man in what promises to be a truly amazing homecoming show."
