Focus On Festivals: Green Man 2012

Lisa Ward


Set in Glanusk Park, in the Black Mountains of Wales in Mid August, Green Man is has an idyllic location with a line up to match. With Feist and Van Morrison already confirmed as headliners and Tune-Yards, Field Music, Michael Kiwanuka and Goodnight Lenin on the bill, it’s set to offer something a little different to the other festivals.

Early bird tickets sold out in record time and there’s also the option to arrive on Monday to make the most of the beautiful surroundings. Einstein’s Garden is billed as ‘a fusion of science, art and nature, a haven for original thinking and imaginative ideas’, whilst the Future Generations area is the place to be if you’re under 18. Meanwhile the Nature & Nurture area offers a place to get away from the noise, and relax with a range of soothing therapies.

One of few Independent Festivals that’s still thriving, it offers more than just music with film, literature, comedy, theatre, poetry, debates, art installations, spoken word amidst the selection of activities. Whilst those with younger children can be assured they’ll be kept entertains with  family theatre, animation and a myriad of workshops and a massive arts, crafts and media tent, with activities including  learning to DJ, being part of a film crew, and puppet making lessons.

Tickets are on sale now, with adult tickets fro £145 including camping. For more information visit www.greenman.net
