Nik Turner's New Space Ritual, John Fairhurst, Dub The Earth, Regime, Sinnober, Dansi, and Wierdstring Band have been added to the bill 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.

Also recently confirmed are Hoopy Frood, Here & Now, Tarantism, and Dohnut (formerly known as eating disorder).

For the Raconteurs' Stage, spoken word artists include John Hegley, Anti Poet, Rosie Swayne, Jenn Hart, and Gilli Bloodaxe.

They join 3 Daft Monkeys, Kangaroo Moon, The Ukrainians, Seize The Day, Edd Donovan And The Wandering Moles, The Pagan Love Cult, Tetch, 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.
