Green Man is a well established folk tinged, music and arts festival which takes place every August in the stunning Black Mountains. So, if you're holidaying in the Breacon Beacons this year, why not make this part of your holiday?It has often been quoted as the festival set in the most beautiful location in the UK and certainly is a welcome break from urban life and the daily grind. 2018 will see the 15th edition of this independent festival, which donates profits to a variety of good causes. The range of live acts on offer has included several big names over the years; however, the focus is also on discovering new musical talents and many Mercury and Brit nominees have performed at Green Man. There are 10 arenas and the site is open 24 hours, with live music, comedy, poetry, literature, arts and science.

There's also plenty to do for the little ones with kids, under 12s and teens all being extremely well catered for.

Don't miss the wide range of Welsh ales and ciders on offer, as well as a variety of carefully selected local food.

Also look out for the "Green Poll", which offers a chance for emerging acts to apply to open the festival, with an annual live final taking place in Camden.

What we love about this festival.

The science-themed "Einstein's Garden" is a unique experience not to be missed. We also love this festivals eco-credentials with a solar, pedal and hydrogen powered stages!

Camping and Glamping Options

Choose from general camping , quiet camping or a live-in vehicle area. All have clean toilets, hot showers and rubbish/recycling facilities. There is also the option of pre-pitched tents with Tangerine Fields, or full glamping options with tipis offering air-beds and bedding. These must be reserved in advance. We think that the "settler's pass" which allows you to stay for a week is a fantastic way of making Green Man part of your summer holiday.
