Green Man

One of the most successful independent festivals on the circuit, Green Man, has just announced the first wave of artists for their mid-August bash, nestled in the green hills of the Brecon Beacons. It’s a stellar line-up that includes The War on Drugs, Fleet Foxes, John Grant, Grizzly Bear, Phoebe Bridgers, Public Service Broadcasting and many more. Not bad, eh? It’s a far cry from the first festival back in 2003 when husband and wife team Jo and Daniel Hagen decided to throw a party for friends in the picturesque Craig-y-nos in the Brecon Beacons. Now, it’s a four-day, 20,000 capacity event that sells out each and every year.
