Green Man Festival 2017 Overview
Green Man is an unrivalled feast of music, comedy, literature, science, film, food and family fun. With around 400 live performances across multiple stages, this festival offers great value for money.
Green Man is set in the heart of the beautiful Brecon Beacons in Wales. The river Usk flows around the perimeter and Sugar Loaf mountain stands impressively as the backdrop to the main stage. The festival offers at least TEN unique areas offering an eclectic take on music, spoken word, kids and teen zones, food and drink, art works, and much more
Green Man features their very own beer festival, featuring ninety-nine ales, ciders and perries sourced from over twenty Welsh breweries with eight bars, open around the clock, serving their own festival brew, hot toddies, cocktails and anything else you might want or need.
Whilst the festival is 100% independent, it still draws a stellar line up of performers each year, spanning the music spectrum- including indie, psychedelia, Americana and folk, as well as DJs playing everything from dub-reggae to electro and stoner rock.
