Green Man Festival

Phew…my goodness it has been a long while since I posted but here comes the catch up…ready?!

In late July the ever growing and frankly marvellous Arctic Circle invited me along to Green Man - my new favourite festival..I loved it last year even though it poured with rain, and this year it was mostly sunny…yes…that’s right…sunny…in WALES.

Arctic Circle got familiar with the festival site, including the new ferris wheel, and bumped into some some mad caged birds who challenged us to a dance off…

…then after all that dancing we settled down for a traditional Arctic Circle cuppa…

…before heading over to the cinema tent to curate a portion of the events on Saturday and Sunday…

including Sone Institute

…the Real Tuesday Weld..

…a special performance by the NRSO of the music of Vernon Eliot…

Rachael Dadd and friends…

…and the Paper Cinema

…other Arctic Circle favourites playing elsewhere included Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo (plus Dom Coyote)…

and The Sleeping Years...…here’s hoping Arctic Circle are back next year!

Of course, between Arctic Circle events I was haring around the beautiful festival site trying to capture lots of the other brilliant acts in the line-up, like Lia Ices

Howard Marks

Robyn Hitchcock

The Villagers

Holy Fuck

Explosions In The Sky...

Tim Minchin

She Keeps Bees

Dry The River


Ellen & the Escapades

…the John Fairhurst Band

Hannah Peel

Fleet Foxes

…Joe Dunthorne...

John Cooper Clarke

Laura Marling

Suuns

The Low Anthem

Dizraeli & The Small Gods

Gruff Rhys

… and Iron & Wine...

Here’s hoping I get invited back next year!
