Your guide to Green Man Festival 2016

The next few days sees another key date on the hippy calendar, as this year’s Green Man Festival gets underway.

Time to, once again, to dust off your flower crown, pack your tie dye clothes and hippy socks, and head off for good times, good company, and good music in the wilderness of Wales’ Brecon Beacons.

One of the most interesting festivals on the scene, the Green Man is a veritable feast of music, art, literature and even relaxing spas.

Starting on August 18 and continuing until August 21, this year’s festival will have 10 separate entertainment areas, with something to offer everyone. The 2016 line-up will see a wide range of acts take to the stage, including Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Belle and Sebastian, Sunflower Bean and Wild Beasts.

As you would expect from any good hippy gathering, there will also be nightly bonfires, around which visitors can congregate, meet new people, play some tunes and enjoy the rural location.

There will also be a separate area solely for teenagers to get together and soak up the festival atmosphere with their peers, and a whole host of DJs and performers who will ensure that the party carries on well into the early hours of the morning.

The festival will, of course, culminate in the burning of the Green Man, and this is a spectacle that you will not want to miss if you’re lucky enough to have a ticket for the now sold out event.
