THE LEGENDARY GREEN MAN BOAT PARTY RETURNS
WIN GREEN MAN TICKETS WITH OUR NATIONWIDE 2012 TREASURE HUNT
It’s back – and this time we’ve got a bigger boat!
The legendary Green Man Boat Party returns on Saturday June 16th for an unforgettable afternoon of nautical naughtiness and live music on the rock ‘n’ rolling River Thames!
We’ve got amazing aquatic sets from the incredible Field Music, Three Trapped Tigers and the aptly named Tom Williams & The Boat, plus a raft of top DJs, and several kegs of pirate-strength cider just waiting to be guzzled and gulped.
It’s all the randomness you’ve come to expect from Green Man. On a bloody great boat. Here’s a bit more about the line-up:
Field Music Consistently brilliant indie/art rock from Sunderland’s Brewis brothers. Latest album Plumb is one of our favourites of 2012 so far, and crams 15 tightly-wound, impossible-to-ignore pop gems in to 35 breathless minutes.
Three Trapped Tigers Instrumental noisenik trio with influences ranging from Aphex Twin and Squarepusher to Lightning Bolt and Battles. Their music veers wildly from noisy guitars to contemplative synths, frantic beats to ambient noise.
Tom Williams & The Boat Poetic sharp wit and heartfelt tales of love lost from the six-piece “anti-folk” band. New album Teenage Blood was released this month via the ever-discerning Moshi Moshi label.
Get your sea legs on and head to Butlers Wharf Pier, London on Saturday June 16th - we set sail at 1pm sharp for a fabulous five-hour river cruise from Tower Bridge to the Thames Barrier and back - landlubbers need not apply!
Tickets are £25.00 (plus £1.50 booking fee) from: http://www.ticketline.co.uk/green-man-boat-party-tickets
The Dixie Queen - a gorgeous paddle steamer - will leave Butlers Wharf Pier at 1pm sharp, please leave plenty of time to get there. The nearest tubes are London Bridge or Tower Hill. When the boat party finishes at 6pm you will be dropped off on the other side of the river at Tower Pier.
WIN TICKETS TO GREEN MAN 2012 WITH ‘WOOD SENSE’: A NEW NATIONWIDE TREASURE HUNT FROM THE MYSTICAL MISTS OF TIME…
Green Man takes to the streets of Britain this spring with a nationwide Treasure Hunt based on a 1,500-year-old board game of kings, counters and cunning!
Wood Sense (or Gwydbwyll in its native Welsh) is pitched somewhere between chess and draughts. It was played by Roman emperors, Welsh barons and even the legendary King Arthur himself - now it’s your turn as Green Man resurrects this ancient pursuit from the mystical mists of time!
Several pairs of Green Man 2012 tickets have been locked away in hidden boxes in Cardiff, London, Brighton, Manchester and Leeds – here’s how it works:
Play games of Wood Sense in participating record shops, bars, venues and cafes to gain access to a riddle and a map.
Solve the riddle and follow the map and you will be lead to a locked box.
Find the eight Green Men hidden around the city - these hold the all-important clues that will open the box. The Green Men come in all shapes and sizes and will be growing magically bigger by the day…
Grab your Green Man 2012 tickets here!
