We've cracked open the archives and are buzzed to stream never-before-released GM sets from Father John Misty, Eels, Stella Donnelly and Adwaith for one almighty watch-along, plus a special live show from Pictish Trail! Keep your eyes peeled for familiar faces as there'll be a film segment featuring you wondrous lot as well...
Alongside this will be a stellar line-up of performing arts, with specially commissioned shows from the finest Welsh performers around. Krystal Lowe, Kitsch & Sync, Pocket Rocket Productions, The Wheelabouts, and The Circus of Truths will all take to the screen to delight, entertain and bemuse you. Two shows are on Zoom & will require pre-booking: Hijinx present 'Metamorphosis', a live and interactive theatre production, (book here); Light Ladd & Emberton present a silent disco of Welsh myths, mixing club classics, punk hits and pop anthems, (book here).
We also have an exclusive virtual preview screening of 'White Riot', Rubika Shah’s film following the Rock Against Racism movement of the ‘70s, revealing the power of music in activism and social change. It's available from 21-23 August to screen here.
Not forgetting the Green Man Rising band competition finale - supporting emerging talent is at the beating heart of GM, now more than ever. 1,800 bands applied, 40,000 online votes were cast and we have our shortlist: Nuha Ruby Ra, BUGS, Duski, GONHILL, Hanya and The Lounge Society. They all bag a slot at the next GM and get a £750 development fund. Our panel of music industry maestros will pick the winner, crowned live on Adam Walton’s BBC Radio Wales show from 10pm, 22nd August.
Also streaming onto your sofas will be digital arts from artists whose works have popped up at Green Man - Sean Harris, Jennifer Taylor, Megan Broadmeadow, Calum McCutheon and Gweni Llwyd. As well as yoga, family workshops and, of course, a virtual burning of the Green Man himself.
Adding to this will be a radio line-up, including a Green Man Radio takeover of Penarth Sounds on 23rd August, exploring highlights, mixes, playlists, and much more from Green Man’s 18 year history.
The stream will be beaming onto your screens from our Facebook, Youtube and Mixcloud pages on 22nd August - but be sure to catch the music then as once it's streamed it'll evaporate into the airways! Stack cups ready, GM crew gathered and eyes peeled for timings and more info landing soon!
Big love, GM x
