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.

    Seems like all the tone deaf sheep were packing the main stage listening to the tuneless wailings and harp plinking of Joanna Newsom whilst the real highlight of the whole wkend was playing the pub stage - Simone Felice. John Grant got there eventually, but where was the full band? Lone Wolf - brilliant as were Megafaun, Wld Beasts and Besnard Lakes. Flaming Lips - where was the music? Big balloons and lasers all you got?

    'Everything Is Free' by Tallest Man was brilliant (cheers shoesuntied for finding that track!). Also loved John Grant, Beirut, Wild Beasts, Darwin Deez (a pleasant, early-Sunday surprise) & Field Music. I was disappointed with The Flaming Lips though. They were ok, but half the set-list must have been turned into confetti: where were Race for the Prize, Ego Tripping, The Spark That Bled, Yeah Yeah Yeah...etc?? Wonderful festival though!

    That's the song! Awesome. Oh and the woman who was onstage with him was Jaw Lesson, a Swedish singer who he's engaged to :)

    I *thought* he said it was a Gillian Welch song.. but I could be mistaken. What I want to know is who was the woman he had on stage with him..? I think she came on for the Megafaun singalong too, but I don't remember seeing her in anything else..

    Apart from the horrific weather it was great, the music was brilliant, there was loads to see, good food and lovely people And I got to meet Zach Condon and the tallest man on earth! Was anyone watching The Tallest Man on Earth? I need to know the name of the last song of his set! Anyone know?

    That was a great weekend. So many highlights but I think John Grant might have just beaten out the competition for me! Thanks for a great time!

    So much fantastic music, it's impossible to pick any particular highlights (although it has to be said that Flaming Lips were beyond amazing). However there's more to a festival than just the music and once again Green Man's lovely, friendly punters (and staff) and beautiful location made it an unmissable weekend. Who gives a shit about the rain, anyway? You don't exactly go to Wales for the weather!!
