The Green Man Festival

The Green Man Festival
Place: Glanusk Park, Usk Valley, Powys, Wales
Dates: From 14/08/2014 To 17/08/2014
Country: United Kingdom

The Green Man Festival takes place at the glorious Glanusk Park in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Main Stage is located in a natural amphitheatre. Sprawl out on lush, grassy slopes while watching world-class artists perform against a backdrop of Sugar Loaf Mountain and the Brecon Beacon's. The formal gardens are used for Einstein's Garden where art installations, stalls and entertainment are positioned between rose arbours and flower beds. The Courtyard Bar is situated in Gothic Victorian Stables, and is a halfway point for the festival. From the Stables you can follow an avenue of ancient trees decorated with lights where stalls sell delicious global food and quality crafts. From the avenue, you can enter the walled garden where the Green Man Pub hums until the wee hours. The Green Man Pub is an intimate space where you can drink a superb selection of ales, beers, cider and cocktails while relaxing at pub tables and chairs. Glorious music wafts from the Pub Stage.  After the avenue of trees, the space opens up to the Science and Literature tents. Near here is the bonfire area, a focal point for late-night jamming from dusk till dawn. The Far Out big top is also nearby, and when the sun goes down the Far Out After Dark keeps the fun alive, fuelled by the nearby End Up Bar which is open very, very late. The first Green Man Festival took place in 2003 as a once day festival at Craig Y Nos Castle in the Brecon Beacons. Due to the festivals popularity it moved to the larger site in 2005.
