Green Man

Help out

We are always looking for new people to join the team. There would be no Green Man without all the amazing volunteers and workers who take part each year.

We are currently taking applications to volunteer on the steward and litter picking teams. We are also on the lookout for paid experienced bar staff at the festival and our Courtyard Welsh Beer and Cider festival in May.

All applicants must be aged 18 or over at the time of the event.

Bar Staff

As a member of the bar staff at Green Man you are at the very heart of the festival. Working in one of the five bars on site, this is an incredible opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a busy festival environment whilst making some fantastic new friends along the way.

To apply to be a member of the bar staff at Green Man or Courtyard Beer and Cider Festival you must be 18 or over and need to have a minimum of 6 months bar experience. At the festival you’re required to work a minimum of 22 hours across four days and will be paid an hourly rate.

Stewarding

Want to volunteer at Green Man this year?

Stewarding applications are now open - apply here!

We’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people age 18 or over to be stewards at Green Man 2017. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who would like to get involved with the festival and experience what it’s like behind the scenes. The role of stewarding mainly involves giving information to the public at the event: it’s a really important position because you will be the main point of contact between the festival and the public, so we need lots of happy, smiley people!

We recruit people on a voluntary basis, which means that you won’t be paid anything, but you will get a free festival ticket, plus one free meal per shift. Since volunteer stewards are not on duty any longer than three six-hour shifts across the entire festival weekend, this means that you’ll get time off to enjoy the event.* It’s really good fun being a steward – it’s sociable because you’ll get to meet lots of other like-minded people, and you’ll see some great music, all set in the stunning location of the Brecon Beacons.

Once again we are using this form for "Runners". These are young people doing the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award who are not 18 but support the operation in non-stewarding roles. If you are applying to be a Runner your first referee must be your DoE Award Leader.

To volunteer at this event you must pay a deposit which will be refunded in cash on successful completion of your three shifts. At the end of this application form you will be redirected to PayPal. If for some reason your payment dors not got through you will have to start the application again.
New Stewards or those who have not stewarded the festival since 2008 - £185.
Stewards who have stewarded one year since 2009 - £120.
Stewards who have stewarded two years since 2009 - £90.
Stewards who have stewarded three years since 2009 - £70.
Stewards who have stewarded four years since 2009 -£45.
Stewards who have stewarded five years since 2009 your good name is your bond.
Runners £45.

If you are a new steward you will be expected to be on-site for registration before 5pm on Wednesday 16 August and the last shifts are allocated up to 7pm on Monday 21 August. We will try to let you know your shifts by 16 July 2016 and you are free to collect your deposit and leave site at the end of your last shift. If you have stewarded at the Green Man Festival since 2009 you can arrive later on Wednesday evening as long as you are available for a briefing before your first shift.

If you have any further questions please contact stewards@greenman.net

*Unfortunately we can’t guarantee you time off to watch your favourite bands – it all depends on what shifts you’re allocated!

Visual Art Applications

Green Man is seeking visually engaging art-works that will make a marked impact on the festival site and audience by changing the perception of the space or adding a new visual experience. Artists are encouraged to present well-considered proposals for ambitious works with strong content and high production values.The festival is especially interested, but not exclusively, in working with early career artists

All works must function round the clock, especially at night, in all weathers and be fabricated to be safe for audiences and to withstand the test of the elements for up to a week. Green Man is offering guidance from its Visual Arts producer in developing the work for the outdoor, social context of the festival and technical installation support.

Art works will be installed within the ʻset' of the festival, which has a distinct brand identity through its stages, facades and signage, and nestles in the remains of an historic 1800's estate with walled gardens and gate house. In 2016 the programme included international visual artist Nathaniel Rackowe and upcoming media collective Flow Conceptions amongst others.

Applications are now open, please check click here to apply.

Band submissions

Discovering new artists and supporting them is a passion for both the organisers and the music loving Green Man audience. We are delighted that stalwarts such as Mumford and Son, Laura Marling, Bon Iver, Ben Howard and many many more first started with Green Man and the festival is known as the place to see new and emerging talent.

So if you want to be part of this then please apply. Although we listen to everything that is sent you may not be chosen to play. Please do not be disheartened by this, having a go is part of the process of performance and for all the people who do make it they have this in common with all musicians: sometimes people say no. As well as the festival we run an unsigned online band competition which is open to everyone.

To apply please send a SoundCloud link and a brief biog to artists@greenman.net

Little Folk & Somewhere

Little Folk

"In 2017 Wales’ rich and distinctive history and culture, will be reimagined, retold and rediscovered. We’ll shed new light on the stories that made us who we are, and uncover new ones that will inspire future generations. We’ll put our past in a new light, and explore collaborations that engage and excite."

This year Little Folk will be part of celebrating Wales' Year Of Legends, by becoming the Land of Legends. Children aged 12 and under can explore the nooks and crannies of the Giant's Garden whilst learning about the incredible myths and legends of Wales. The area will be divided into four: The Pond, The Sky, The Forest and The Mountains. We are looking for workshops, activites and performances that promote Wales as a nation of storytelling from King Arthur to Hinterland to Doctor Who and fit into one of these brackets. For example, families may discover Cantr' Gwaelod in the pond, a sunken Kingdom similar to Atlantis, chase dragons through the sky, play with fairies in the forest or create furniture for the giants who use the mountains as their seats.

The area will be open on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the festival. As always all activities in Little Folk are free for our festival guests and children must be supervised at all times.

We can't wait to hear your ideas and stumble across new stories. Please note that all applications will receive a reply by the end of May.

Good luck!

Somewhere

At Green Man we know its important for our guests aged 13 - 17 to have somewhere that is entirely their own. Somewhere is exclusively for teenagers and will be open on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the festival.

We are looking for a huge variety of workshops, activities and performances to fill the area between 12 and 8 on each of those days. Please bear in mind that all activities need to be provided for free when completing your applications. All applications will receive a reply by the end of May.

Einstein’s Garden Science Stalls

Einstein’s Garden is Green Man festival’s area of science and nature where art and science collide to bring an exciting and unique line up. We have a diverse programme of performances, workshops and installations that use creativity, play and participation to engage people with science and research in unexpected ways.

We’re on the look out for organisations interested in bringing a stall to Einstein’s Garden with the aim of engaging festival audiences with science. Stalls could explore fundamental scientific ideas or phenomena, the process of science or current scientific research. It is essential that stalls include as much interactivity and participation as possible for festival goers and that they embody the creative and playful spirit of Einstein’s Garden.


The Einstein’s Garden theme for 2017 is (MIS)BEHAVIOUR. It is not essential for science stalls to directly relate to the theme, but it may help to shape your ideas.

Please apply here.

Applications close Friday 24th March.
