Now in its 13th year, the festival takes place at Glanusk Park, Usk Valley, Powys, in Wales. The dates for The Green Man Festival 2015 are from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd August.
The Green Man Festival is a four day event with three days of music. There are still many more acts to be confirmed, expect over 400 live performances across 17 stages.
Green Man's Director Fiona Stewart said, "Green Man is ever evolving and there are loads of new things for 2015. Music will always be at the heart of the festival but the other areas have developed incredibly to become more than a side show and into stand alone events in their own right. So you will find a literature and comedy festival, family festival, holiday festival, science festival, food festival, dance festival, film festival, beer festival and arts festival as part of Green Man. I think that’s why people of all ages and interests go – people have the freedom to create whatever festival experience they want."
Literature, film, theatre, ceilidhs, all-night bonfires, comedy and secret gigs are part of the festival's identity. The festival has carved a niche as a non-corporate and ethically-minded festival.
