Applications for Green Man 2021 are now open!



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 2021. 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.

To volunteer at this event you must pay a deposit which will be refunded 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 does not go through you can return to to try again. This year if you are paying the £200 or £100 deposit, you will have the option to split these payments.

New Stewards or those who have not stewarded the festival since 2009 - £200
Stewards who have stewarded one year since 2009 - £100
Stewards who have stewarded two years since 2009 - £75
Stewards who have stewarded three years since 2009 - £50
Stewards who have stewarded four years since 2009 - £25
Stewards who have stewarded five years or more since 2009, your good name is your bond
Runners £25

If you are a new steward you will be expected to be on-site for registration before 5pm on Wednesday 18th August and the last shifts are allocated up to 7pm on Monday 23th August. Shifts cover a 24 hour period, so it is possible you could be allocated a night shift. We will try to let you know your shifts by 19th July and you are free to leave site once you have been signed off by a Steward Manager on completion of your third 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.

Once again we are using this form for "Runners". These are young people who are not 18 but support the operation in non-stewarding roles. You would be expected to arrive on Sunday 11th August and work preparing for the event.

Please apply here

If you have any further questions please contact

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