Texas post-rockers Explosions in The Sky brought the first full day of Green Man Festival to a close with a mind-blowing headline set.

The instrumental act played a fittingly dramatic set amid a swirling haze of light drizzle, which proved a perfect fallacy for the event’s epic Brecon Beacons location.

The band’s set comprised of choice picks from their recent ‘Take Care, Take Care, Take Care‘ album, as well as a selection of tried and tested songs from their back catalogue.

Fan James Brittan, of Chepstow said: “They were very atmospheric, a fitting headliner for such a beautiful festival.

Tim Minchin opened the festival yesterday with a special Thursday night set of comical songs, stand up routines and a cover of Leonard Cohen‘s ‘Hallelujah‘.

Green Man Festival 2011 continues this weekend, with Fleet Foxes & Iron and Wine playing much anticipated headline sets on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
