This was the 14th Green Man – my sixth time to the festival. Nestled in a valley overlooking some beautiful mountains (right behind the Mountain Stage being Table Mountain – a lovely walk, if you’re ever there with time to spare), Green Man is constantly listed as one of the UK’s best medium-sized festivals. The location is gorgeous, the line up usually stellar, and while it pretty much always rains, as long as you’ve got waterproofs, you’re guaranteed a good time.
I’m a big fan of Green Man Festival. Obviously it helps that it’s only about an hour drive from my house, but it’s also usually a really lovely weekend.
Needless to say the festival site was absolutely spotless – they have endless patrols of litter people wandering around picking up any litter, plus with cups costing £1 people are much more careful about dropping used ones on the floor.
I kept mine – it’s a lovely reminder of the festival back at home every time I want to grab a glass of water 🙂
We splashed out and booked ourselves into the Bathing Under the Sky wood-burner heated hot tubs. I did the same last year, and loved it. It’s a bit pricey, but really worth it if you can afford it. It’s especially nice when it rains – look at the rainbows you can see!
Although the line up wasn’t that great this year compared to others (in my eyes anyway) we still had a total blast. The early bird tickets have already sold out, but keep your eyes on the Green Man website for when general sale tickets go up for 2017 – it’s their 15th birthday, and they’ve hinted there’s a lot planned for it!
