Green Man is one of the best UK festivals, Its a very well organised and again this year offers another sterling line-up set in the beautiful Brecon Beacons with the Black Mountains as the stage backdrop.

A beautiful compact site and smart programming is the key to Green Man. With over a decade of experience behind it, it has established a loyal fan base and a cool but relaxed reputation. As might be expected of a boutique festival, it offers a great range of fun and cerebral activities, and is welcoming to both families and younger discerning urbanites. Musically, it’s a deluge of delight with echoes of its folkish beginnings and a distinct feel for the hottest acts of the season.  The giant effigy of the Green Man himself stands on a hill witnessing the proceedings, disappearing in a blaze at the end of the last day. It is definitely a bit Wicker Man with a Welsh pagan twist. Add to this a 24-hour licence and a top range of inexpensive food stalls and you’ve got a definite winner.

Music highlights: Courtney Barnett, The Fall, Father John Misty, Goat, Hookworms, Hot Chip, Matthew E White, St Vincent, Super Furry Animals, Viet Cong

Tickets and line-up information: www.greenman.net

Hot Chip will headline the Friday night of the festival, which takes place at Glanusk Park in the Brecon Beacons from August 20-23. St Vincent, meanwhile, will close the festival on the Sunday  evening.
