Green Man

Help out

Loads of people help out at Green Man each year, many of them on a voluntary basis. Although our Green Man volunteers aren't paid money, they get a free festival ticket, plus one free meal per shift.

This year you can volunteer to be a Steward or Litter Picker or apply for paid work in one of our bars. Volunteers are only on duty for a few shifts across the entire festival weekend, this means that you’ll get time off to enjoy the event. Unfortunately we can't guarantee you time off to watch your favourite bands, it all depends on what shifts you're allocated!

It’s really good fun volunteering or working – it’s sociable and you’ll get to meet lots of other like-minded people, and you’ll see some great music.

We’re looking for friendly, enthusiastic people age 18 or over to be stewards at the Green Man Festival 2016.

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.

We will try to let you know your shifts by 17 July 2016 and you are free to collect your deposit and leave site at the end of your last shift.

Art Applications

Art Applications

Art works at Green Man are vibrant, playful and spectacular, with a strong visual aesthetic and high production values. They are woven into the festival’s set, bringing forgotten corners to life or waiting to be discovered by Green Man’s audiences as they bimble around and play especially after dark.

If you have an idea for an artwork, be it a light installation, digital projection, land art, an installation, street art/mural painting, architectural/spatial design project, socially engaged practice, sound work, monumental sculpture or anything else besides we would love to see it! We are especially interested, but not exclusively, in working with early career artists and collectives. Applications open until 1 March 2016.

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

We welcome applications for arts and crafts, circus skills, dance, hula-hoop, music making, and just about everything under the sun.

The one rule is that whatever you bring must be provided to our festival guests for free. It is important to take this into account when outlining your costs and budget. It's also worth bearing in mind that all children must be supervised at all times in Little Folk, so keeping the big folk entertained, active and happy is equally as important.
