Had a great time at my first Green Man, despite the rain, toddler in tow and being pregnant! We were lucky enough to be able to camp in accessible camping as one of our party had a pass. The stewards didnt really seem to mind who went in so we all trapsed through! Was a lovely big space with loads of room for our tents and for the toddlers to run about, just perfect.
Managed to see some really good sets over the weekend despite having to manage the weather and childcare needs. Was happily surprised to see Amadou and Mariam rescheduled to the Friday evening, we thought we'd already missed them. Slightly underwhelmed by Steve Mason although he did finish pretty well. SvE on the main stage was great, watching Seventeen was probably the highlight of my weekend, only wished I'd been down the front for that! I also loved Four Tet. Got my raving shoes on with the little one snug in the trolley at the back (sorry trolley-haters) and danced til 1am. Also caught sets from Nulifer Yanya, Eels and a lot of the daytime acts on the Main Stage. Really enjoyed Saturday and Sunday sitting in the sun at the back listening to some new music.
My only gripe is that the dance options are fairly limited and are on sooo late! I couldn't manage to stay up til 2am to catch Giles Peterson, Shy FX or John Talabot do the after hours stuff. I don't know why there's such a big gap between the last headliner finishing and the dancey stuff starting. For me, sometimes the timetable didn't flow very well, it was a case of hanging around for an hour waiting for something I wanted to see next. I often just headed back to the tent and went to bed. I guess I'm comparing it to Glasto where there's always so much choice, all the time.
Overall though it was a great festival. We'll definitely be back.
