Green Man wins our unofficial prize for best festival setting: it's in the beautiful parkland setting of the Black Mountains (not usually open to the public), nestled in the resplendent Brecon Beacons. The beauteous, chlorophyllic location underlines the festival's staunchly eco-friendly ethos, and the predominately folkie bill befits the vibe. Still, there's no purism here, with plugged-in bands and electro DJs playing alongside earthy, autoharp-wielding balladeers. As part of its annual commitment to home-grown, organic talent, Green Man run a competition for an unsigned band to open the festival.
