    Oh, how I wish I could wake up tomorrow morning in a tent back in Wales, where I can experience the whole festival all over again.

    The Three Craws were great- but it felt like they were only on for about 25 mins :(

    The bizarre thing about Stephen Frost is that he lives just down the road from me in South East London and I was standing behind him in Budgens a couple of weeks ago whilst he was buying some baccy and a paper. Freaked me out a bit to see him on stage. I thought it might be the cider...

    best set was probably bon iver, so so amazing. animal collective are pretty much the best band of all time, but i was so disappointed with them ! such a let down, especially as i had relied on them being the best. wilco was dull. emmy the great was good but expected her to play canopies and grapes which she didn't which was annoying. agree with everyone about the andrew bird/bon iver clash, we ran to far out after bon and only catched the last half of the last song, crowd looked amazing though. couldn't see she keeps bees either due to camera obscura clash. gang gang were so much better than i expected, though i think would have suited a night slot at far out. but basically this was a completely wicked weekend, and how good were the nachos @ mexican and the pies @ pieminister! wow.

    He's called Stephen Frost! I had to call my dad on Sunday to find out his name, could not remember it either and it began to really bug me...

    Had the best weekend at Green Man. So chilled out and would defo go back there again! I agree that Animal Collective were disappointing. 3rd time I've seen them now and they just don't do it for me live. Too self-indulgent at times. Still one of the best bands in the world. There were some great sets - Grizzly Bear, Bon Iver, Phantom Band, Dirty Three (v funny), Magic Arm, Wave Machines, Guy in the Herbal Tent doing the dub-harmonica (does anyone know his name?).. but Wilco were by far the best. One of the greatest peformances I've ever seen. Just perfect!

    What is the name of that midly funny semi-celebrity that introduced a number of acts on the main stage. His name has escaped me.

    The best act by far was Bon Iver, then Animal Collective. Gang Gang Dance, Beach House and Wooden Shjips were also all amazing. Such a good weekend.

    Oh yeah, and 6 Day Riot.... in fact just the whole thing again. Or even better Green Man 2010.

    Once again Green Man has left me with an overwhelming sense of euphoria. I love that place. Highlights - poetry at Einstein's Field, Bon Iver, She Keeps Bees, Wooden Shjips, Yellow Moon Band, Trembling Bells, Josie Long... ace festival and loved the new layout. Definitely buying an early bird ticket for next year...

    Kind of surprised that people thought Animal Collective were weak. One of my personal highlights, even though the setlist was criminally short on old stuff. Bon Iver and Dirty Three were both amazing, and Peter Broderick was a big surprise.

    Really enjoyed it, but some craptacular clashes (and also some annoying people on the campsite who really didn't seem to be there to see bands at all...). I was one of the seldom few who opted to see Andrew Bird over Bon Iver - having seen the latter before and being well aware that the former's set would be far less busy. It was definitely worth it as the Birdman ended up being my second favourite act of the weekend (sandwiched between the amazing Wilco and the less-amazing-but-still-ridiculously-awesome Camera Obscura). The consensus seems to be that Animal Collective were not amazing and I agree wholeheartedly.
