I just got my tickets for this years festival!! It's is on from the 19/20/21 AUGUST 2011.The Green Man Festival is an alternative independent music festival held annually in the mystical Brecon Beacons, (Bannau Brycheiniog) South Wales.
It has evolved from a one-day, 300 capacity event in 2003, to a three-day festival with live Music, including psychedelic , folk rock, indie, dance and Americana across five stages, as well as DJs playing everything from dub-reggae to electro, throughout the night in tents like Chai Wallah. Literature, Film, theatre, ceilidhs, all-night bonfires, comedy and and secret gigs are part of the festival's unique identity. The bars offer everything from real ale and organic cider to cocktails. There's always a fantastic variety of food on offer too- full menus from countries around the globe down to tea and toast for breakfast from a cute french van called Cowslip! An 8 metre sculpture of the Green Man is set alight at the end of the festival, which creates a wonderful finale and great spectacle to finish the celebrations.
Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons are a couple of the artists who played last year and the lovely Laura Marling won Best British Female at the Brits last night! This year the Fleet Foxes, from Seattle, are one of the indie bands confirmed to headline. The festival has carved a niche as a non-corporate and ethically-minded magical festival!
I can't wait....hurry up summer!!
