Friday 17 August 2007 — Sunday 19 August 2007
Glanusk Park, Glanusk, NP8 1LP, United Kingdom
Zero corporate sponsorship. Sensible security arrangements. The Green Man Festival is now slightly more than the best kept festival secret it once was. Where folk rubs shoulders with electronica. And where, last year, Calexico gave a storming finale that followed James Yorkston packing them into the marquee at the folky-dokey stage, Malcolm Middleton delivering his unique brand of strangely upliftling melancholia and where Quasi just blew me away one afternoon on the main stage. It rained all weekend and nobody cared. And that doesn't even begin to sum it up. Best festival in the UK, no contest.
We are delighted to announce the details for The Green Man Festival 2007. We will be returning to the glorious Glanusk Park in the Brecon Beacons National Park (www.glanuskestate.com), with its 20,000 acres of peaceful parkland in the Sugar Loaf mountains. The Estate site is unique to the Festival, and we will once again be using the Walled Garden for the Children's area, the Stable Courtyard for the Café stage and the tiered lawns for the natural arena of the Main Stage.
The campsite opens on Thursday 16th August at 10.00am, with the 3 full days of music beginning on Friday 17th at Midday and ending at Midnight on Sunday 19th. The Cinema, DJ and Literature tents will all again be featured, while the green field and retreat areas will both be extended offering massage and alternative therapies. We will also be offering a wider selection of delicious local food and cuisines from around the world. New additions for this year include: fresh seafood curries, smoked delicacies from the on-site smokery and a stall run by the local Cwmdu School.
Weekend Tickets are the same price as 2006, £98 for Adults including camping, and Free for Under 12s. Parking is Free, but please note there will be an additional cost for those wishing to bring a live-in vehicle. Tickets can be purchased via the website or through Ticketline UK on 08700 667799.
