Green Man wins the UK Grass Roots Festival Award

Following a massive nationwide public poll, Green Man was voted the winner of the ‘Grass Roots Festival Award’ at the UK Festival awards bash in London – the festival world’s equivalent of the Oscars. 

The Grass Roots Award is "for festivals that should be celebrated, not just for the courage, vision, commitment and often personal sacrifice invested by their organisers, but also because they never forget where they've come from, supporting their local communities and new music along the way while retaining an independent spirit and resisting commercial saturation." - The UK Festival Awards

Fiona Stewart of Green Man - “We are particularly proud to win the Grass Roots Award as we see it as recognition of the independent and anti-corporate stance which is at the core part of Green Man and why it still is such a unique event.” 

“This is a really fantastic way to end a memorable tenth anniversary year. Thank you to everyone who voted, the wonderful artists and crew who shape the festival, the super-friendly, music-loving people who come to Green Man each year."

Green Man 2013 will take place in the breathtaking Black Mountains, Wales, from August 15th-18th, 2013
