DANCE from dusk until dawn this summer with a floor-filling line-up of electronic artists and DJs in Far Out After Dark with Caribou, The 2 Bears, Luke Abbott, The Field, Ben UFO and Simian Mobile Disco.
 
With a 24 hour license and four late night areas at Green Man 14 the party really never ends. You can watch a cult documentary in the Little White Lies Cinema Tent and have a belly chuckle in Last Laugh until 2am.
 
Immerse yourself in the electronic beats of the After Dark tent and dance to global rhythms in Chai Wallahs until 4am. Make new friends around the glowing embers of the Green Man bonfire as dawn breaks before winding down at the End Up Bar as the sun shines through the mountains.
 
Green Man has a long history of supporting electronic music, established and up-and-coming alike. Four Tet, Squarepusher, James Blake, Andrew Weatherall, Jon Hopkins, Erol Alkan, Mr Scruff, Gold Panda, Beyond The Wizards Sleeve, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Ewan Pearson, DJ Yoda, Matthew Herbert, Daniel Avery and loads more have all played pulsating late-night sets at the festival in the past.
 
This year the festival is set to continue this proud tradition by once again hosting the best electronic artists and DJs in the world to move your feet and delight your ears until 4am every night.
 
Friday will see Caribou embraced elements of deep house and minimal techno with their neo-psychedelic masterpiece Swim. The 2 Bears have good Green Man form and with a new album due soon, they will see you down the front for a Bear Hug.
 
On Saturday Luke Abbott will perform. He dragged dancefloors everywhere kicking and screaming into the 21st Century with his debut album Holkham Drones. Joining Luke is Swedish ambient techno artist The Field, renowned for his eclectic taste and micro-samples of traditional pop songs.
 
On Sunday Ben UFO is an expert selector and a mixer who explores sounds old and new across the worlds of house, garage, dubstep and grime. Simian Mobile Disco will grace Far Out After Dark with a typically ebullient DJ set, as well as performing new album Whorl during the day.
 
Tickets are selling fast, live-in vehicle and student tickets have now sold out and there are only a few teen tickets left.
 
Greenman takes place from August 14 to 17 in the Black Mountains (near Crickhowell in the Brecon Beacons).
