There's quite a lot of useful stuff you can buy here at the festival, but it's always a good idea to pack well for Green Man. From experience we think you'll need somewhere to stay (your tent), your sleeping bag, clothes for warm and less-warm weather, waterproofs and wellies (just in case), loo roll, a torch, sun cream, sun hat. Oh and some snacks — always good to have snacks back at the ranch. Don't forget your toothbrush too! (although we won't kick you out for that).
There are a few FORBIDDEN ITEMS too. The FORBIDDEN ITEMS are: Fireworks or other explosives, pets (except guide dogs), sound systems (there are loads here!), glass bottles, open fires, generators, tin foil barbecues, weapons, bombs etc...
We pride ourselves on having a mouth-watering selection of culinary wonders at Green Man, along with an amazing array of lip-smacking Welsh ales & ciders (you must check out our Beer & Cider in The Courtyard). You certainly won't go hungry here, or thirsty, but you're welcome to bring your own drinks as long as you drink responsibly and don't bring any glass containers of any kind. Be aware that car searches do take place when you arrive at Green Man and any glass has to be confiscated without being replaced. Unless you're positively ancient, do remember to have some photo ID with you at the bars! Don't be offended if we ask to see this — we're just trying to obey the law.
We don't want anybody feeling that they can't enjoy Green Man. We put a lot of effort into making sure we can achieve great disability access wherever we possibly can on site. We recommend checking out the full details of our access before buying a ticket — have a read of the information here on the right.
Could there be a more fabulous location for a festival than the Glanusk Park Estate in the breathtaking Brecon Beacons? We don’t think so, so help us keep the site looking beautiful and treat the land with the respect it deserves!
Recycling bins will be available in the campsites and throughout the festival site for recycling plastic, card and tin. You’ll be given special green bags for recycling and black bags for general rubbish when you arrive, so start as you mean to go on!
Absolutely no glass whatsoever is allowed on the entire festival site, including the camping areas, so please decant any wine or spirits into plastic bottles before you pitch your tent.
We have a large team of litter-pickers and recyclers who will be on hand to sort through the rubbish, but we rely on your help to make their job manageable so please do your bit and tidy up after yourselves. Thanks a million!
Green Man takes place in an amazing land of very ancient trees. We've been asked by the Glanusk Estate (who are responsible for the upkeep of the site all year round) to pass on this message to all of you coming to Green Man this year.
“Many of the trees at Glanusk are well over 100 years old. With age brings about some weakness and deterioration so some of the branches are unstable. These trees have signs on them and are roped off by the Glanusk Estate so in the interests of your safety can you please not cross the rope or enter the roped off area for any purpose or climb any individual trees which are not roped off."
If you have any questions regarding your ticket order, please contact Ticketline with your ticket reference number at the ready.
Unless you’ve been living on Mars since July 1st 2007 you’ll know that smoking in the UK is now banned in all public places – Green Man is not immune to the law. Luckily for those who like the odd puff, most of the festival happens outside and the only places you will be forbidden from smoking are inside the entertainment marquees. Areas where you cannot smoke will have “no smoking” signs, so please adhere to them. Cheers.
Guests may be searched on entry to Green Man and if you are in possession of any illegal substance you will be refused entry and may be arrested. Enough said.
Because of the fire risk, no open fires or tinfoil barbeques are allowed on site. Proper camping stoves or barbeques on legs are fine but just be careful if you’ve had a couple of ciders! Nobody wants to be responsible for burning Green Man to the ground – not until the final night, anyway.
No glass bottles are allowed on any part of the festival site (including the camping areas) and although you’re welcome to bring a personal stash of alcohol into the campsites you will not be able to bring booze into the entertainment areas where there are licensed bars. See the alcohol section of these pages for more information.
No sound systems, amplified music, ghetto blasters, electric guitars, drum kits etc…are allowed in the camping areas. Who needs them anyway when you’ve got an amazing festival line-up and Green Man Radio broadcasting round-the-clock? If we break the noise limits in our licence then there is no Green Man = no fun and sad faces all around. So bring your headphones and please respect your fellow campers, even if they do snore heavily throughout the night.
