Patti Smith Confirmed For Green Man 2013

We are delighted to announce Patti Smith as the fourth headliner for Green Man 2013

We are honoured to welcome a truly incredible musical icon as our special guest headliner for the Thursday night opening party, the one the only Patti Smith.

Expect a spectacular opening performance from punk rock's poet laureate, as Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock and rollers of all time. Her performance at Green Man 2013 is a UK festival Exclusive!

Ambitious, unconventional and challenging, Patti's music was hailed as the most exciting fusion of rock and poetry since Bob Dylan's heyday when she burst onto 1970s New York punk scene. Debut album Horses (produced by fellow Green Man 2013 star John Cale) kick-started one of the most singular and diverse careers in rock; it remains an influential landmark that sounds as fresh, relevant and exciting as ever today.

Patti headlines a superb opening night of live music in the Far Out Tent on Thursday night, with support from the brilliant Matt Berry, The Mekons founder and Wales' own massive creative genius Jon Langford and hotly-tipped and talented Manchester hopefuls Money.

Matt Berry is a musical polymath whose second album Kill The Wolf is currently receiving rave reviews from all quarters. Following on from last year's critically acclaimed progressive folk opus Withchazel, it's the latest development in an amazing career that has also taken in acting and award-winning comedy writing.

Jon Langford is a multi-talented Welsh artist. He is a founding member of legendary punk band The Mekons, art-metal power trio The Three Johns, and militant hard-country rockers the Waco Brothers. In 2012 he represented Wales' contemporary music offer in the Cultural Olympiad event "Busk on the Usk." Since moving to Chicago in 1992 he has exhibited  his own art and published three multimedia spoken word collections.

Money are a Manchester four-piece that embody the passion, creativity and optimism of a new generation of artists and musicians from this most poetic of cities. Selling out shows before they'd even released a single, Money were quickly snapped up by the ever-discerning Simon Raymonde and his Bella Union label.
