Van Morrison has been unveiled as a headline act for the 2012 Green Man festival in the Brecon Beacons.

The legendary Belfast-born blues and rock singer will play the Saturday night of the 10th anniversary festival at Glanusk Park on 18 August.

Canadian singer-songwriter Feist has already been named as another of the weekend headliners.

Other acts confirmed so far including Michael Kiwanuka, Scritti Politti, Jonathan Richman and King Creosote.

The festival, held annually near Crickhowell, was a sell-out last year with around 10,000 people attending.

Previous headliners have included ex-Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, Fleet Foxes, Super Furry Animals, Jarvis Cocker and Doves.

Morrison has previously performed at the nearby Brecon Jazz and Hay festivals.
