Seize The Day, The Don Bradmans, Mango Factory, Jon Sterckx, The High Breed, Tori Reed, and Wierdstring Band are the latest acts announced for The Green Gathering returning for a fifth year to Piercefield Park of Chepstow, in Monmouthshire and held from Thursday 13th until Sunday 16th August 2015.
The line up will also include Martha Tilston, The Roving Crows, Radical Dance Faction (RDF), Formidable Vegetable SoundSystem, Smiley & The Underclass, Jazz Gnome Assassins, Billy Rowan, Will Tun & the Wasters, Krankschaft, Suzy Condrad, and Tallulah Rendall.
Live music and DJs are just one aspect of this off grid festival. A Speakers' Forum provides a platform for key Green thinkers; the Brigadoon Stage hosts informal acoustic music sessions; and there's a spoken word arena for poets, comedians and raconteurs. Spoken word acts include poet and author Salena Godden, and activist and performer The Artist Taxi Driver.
Landscaped grounds high above the Wye Valley offer views of the Severn estuary and bridges; the ruins of neoclassical Piercefield House provide an atmospheric backdrop; and the rolling parkland of the site, encircled by woods, has ample space for camping.

Children aged under 11 years can attend free, a youth ticket (aged 11-15 years) with a responsible adult is £54, carer/companion tickets are also often free (by arrangement).
