Green Man 2017 sells out in record time!


The Green Man’s fabulous fifteenth birthday marks their earliest ever sell out!

This year’s line-up will include PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams, Future Islands, The Shins, Ride, Michael Kiwanuka, Kate Tempest, Sleaford Mods and many more!

There will also be an amazing array of other areas from cracking comedy and illuminating discussions in Babbling Tongues to whizzpopping science experiments in Einstein’s Garden and legend-themed fun for kids in Little Folk. Visitors can also get their fill in The Courtyard, where there will be a Welsh Beer & Cider Festival, while Far Out will host the memorable late night parties!

There are still a few more surprises to be unveiled – look out for additions to the Cinedrome, Last Laugh, Somewhere and Green Man’s new(ish) performing arts area, Back of Beyond.

If you already have a festival weekend ticket there’s still time to upgrade on the door (or in advance) to spend the whole week with the Green Man as Settlers. Camp from Monday August 14th through to Sunday for an extra £45 for adults. There will be a full week of adventures and fun awaiting; three days of live music (curated by Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog) PLUS pub quizzes, workshops, star-gazing, wildlife drawing, foraging, solargraphy, and lots more. There’s something for everyone in the Settlement, or just enjoy a few extra days in the beautiful Wild Welsh Wilderness!

Can’t make the main event? Don’t panic, there’s still a chance to jump aboard the Green Man’s Boat Party.
