The Green Man Festival
The Green Man Festival is an independent music festival held annually in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. It has evolved from a one-day, 300 capacity event in 2003, to a three-day festival with live music including psych, folk, indie, dance and Americana across five stages, as well as DJs playing everything from dub-reggae to electro and stoner rock, throughout the night.
Music is at the heart of Green Man, but aspects of culture, sustainable living and environmental consciousness have become central to Green Man too. Literature, film, theatre, ceilidhs, all-night bonfires, comedy and secret gigs are part of the festival's unique identity.
Green Man takes place in the rolling parkland of Glanusk Park, nestled under the Sugar Loaf Mountain in the Brecon Beacons National Park; "of all the festivals in all the fields in Britain, probably the best field of all has been bagged by the Green Man Festival"(The Times). The festival has carved a niche as a non-corporate and ethically-minded festival, and is widely regarded as the leading boutique festival on the UK festival circuit.
