Green Man Boat Party feat Field Music, Three Trapped Tigers, and Tom Williams & The Boat

It’s back – and this time we’ve got a bigger boat!

The legendary Green Man Boat Party returns on Saturday June 16th for an unforgettable afternoon of nautical naughtiness and live music on the rock ‘n’ rolling River Thames!

We’ve got amazing aquatic sets from the incredible Field Music, Three Trapped Tigers and the aptly named Tom Williams & The Boat, plus a raft of top DJs, and several kegs of pirate-strength cider just waiting to be guzzled and gulped. 

It’s all the randomness you’ve come to expect from Green Man. On a bloody great boat. Here’s a bit more about the line-up:

Field Music Consistently brilliant indie/art rock from Sunderland’s Brewis brothers. Latest album Plumb is one of our favourites of 2012 so far, and crams 15 tightly-wound, impossible-to-ignore pop gems in to 35 breathless minutes.

Three Trapped Tigers Instrumental noisenik  trio with influences ranging from Aphex Twin and Squarepusher to Lightning Bolt and Battles. Their music veers wildly from noisy guitars to contemplative synths, frantic beats to ambient noise.

Tom Williams & The Boat Poetic sharp wit and heartfelt tales of love lost from the six-piece “anti-folk” band. New album Teenage Blood was released this month via the ever-discerning Moshi Moshi label.

Get your sea legs on and head to Butlers Wharf Pier, London on Saturday June 16th - we set sail at 1pm sharp for a fabulous five-hour river cruise from Tower Bridge to the Thames Barrier and back - landlubbers need not apply! 

Tickets are £25.00 (plus £1.50 booking fee) from:

The Dixie Queen - a gorgeous paddle steamer -  will leave Butlers Wharf Pier at 1pm sharp, please leave plenty of time to get there. The nearest tubes are London Bridge or Tower Hill. When the boat party finishes at 6pm you will be dropped off on the other side of the river at Tower Pier.

I agree Lucy it looks great. A few of us went in 2009 and got a suntan and a hangover but it was brilliant. Definitely going to this.



tickets booked, bring on the cider! (any chance the druids can do a two-for-one and also sort out some sun for on June16th?)


This looks like fun! Hope it doesnt sell out before I get paid
