The Green Man Festival


This years Green Man was a swampy mudfest hampered by torrential rain, but it still didn't spoil the magical atmosphere of the festival (even if I did have to spend quite a bit of time cowering under trees or in tents!)  The rain clouds on the mountains made the beautiful location look all the more mysterious.

Highlight bands were Saturday night headliners Super Furry Animals, Radio Luxembourg (see pictures on the next 2 pages), Caribou and Cate Le Bon.  One of the other bands that stood out was The Peth, but unfortunately for the wrong reasons as they emptied the tent with a shambolic set.

Ended up spending a lot of time in the cinema tent to watch some short films and to stay as dry as physically possible and the nightly campfire was more welcome than ever for warming up and drying off while having a midnight congregation.

It was a shame about the weather, but the unique atmosphere and location proved that Green Man is still my favourite festival by far.
