The Selection Process

The Shortlist

Every entry is listened to and whittled down to a shortlist of 20 which is then shared with a team of key tastemakers, who’ve previously included So Young Magazine, Dots and Dashes, Too Many Blogs and London On The Inside.

The Final

Our tastemakers help us to select our finalists who are then invited to perform at the live final at The Lexington, London in front of a panel of industry insiders. Previous judges have included MOJO, The Guardian, 6 Music, Creative Artist Agency, Domino Records, NME/Beats, United Talent Agency, Beggars Record Label and of course Green Man.

The Winners

The winner of Green Man Rising will open our iconic Mountain Stage at Green Man 2019 and they will also be given the opportunity to shoot a live video session at the festival. Our two runners up will be invited to perform on the Rising Stage at Green Man 2019.

Green Man Rising is made possible through the support of Green Man Trust & Arts Council Wales.
