Trading & Volunteers

All applications have now closed.

Trader applications will open in November.

Applications to work and volunteer at the festival will open in early 2019.


Creative ideas are the very fabric of Green Man! Ok so we book a lot of this ourselves, but we're always open to new ideas… do you have any? Maybe you're an installation artist, or a filmmaker, or a scubadiver… it doesn't matter — if you've got some fun ideas to share then feel free to do it.

If you have some thoughts about how an earth your idea could take place, all the better (and all the more likely that we'll be able to help you make it happen). Don't be shy, try us. Check out the links on the right for inspiration.

We are currently taking band submissions, please check back in early 2019 for applications for other areas.


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
