The first acts have been announced for The Green Gathering returning for a sixth year to Piercefield Park of Chepstow, in Monmouthshire and held from Thursday 4th until Sunday 7th August 2016.

The first acts to be confirmed as playing across the Green Gathering's four intimate stages are 3 Daft Monkeys, Kangaroo Moon, Echo Town, Tess Of The Circle, Little Sparrow, and The Electric Brains.

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.

With the strapline 'beyond hedonism', The Green Gathering blends protest culture and environmental activism with wild music and wanton dancing in the best tradition of old-skool festival.

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.
