Tents & Camping

Settler's Pass

Stay for a whole week!

Stay for a whole week! Your ticket to an adventure longer and more fruitful than you could ever have imagined; deep into the verdant heart of Green Man Land.


More Info

You will be camping in the festival campsite so will be able to pitch your tent and stay in the same place throughout the festival. The campsite will have its own regularly cleaned toilets, hot showers, a small bar serving a great range of drinks and a food outlet selling tasty meals throughout the day. There will also be a fire area set slightly away from the tent and an ample supply of firewood, we would like to encourage people to bring their instruments with them and join in with the Green Man tradition of jamming sessions around the campfire.

Please bear in mind that during this time and the festival will still be being built, so you will not be able to go into the main event area. If you have a car you will be able to come and go as you please, however if you are in a campervan, once you have parked in the campsite you won’t be able to move it until after the festival finishes (this is to prevent damage to the ground before the festival starts).

Why a week is worth it

Remember that haunting feeling that your Green Man stay was too brief? Well we've taken that very feeling and turned it into something positive. Something truly special.

With a Settler's Pass you can extend your Green Man experience to seven sacred days. Camp with us. Eat, drink and be merry. Breathe in the wild Welsh air. Look up at the stars and let us teach you about them. Share stories, laughter, moments that become memories. Memories that become legends. We are the special ones; the Green Man's Settlers.

Green Man Camping

Green Man has separate areas for General Camping, Family Camping, Quiet Camping, Live-in Vehicle Camping and Disabled Camping - all equipped with plentiful toilets (cleaned at regular intervals to prevent nasty niffs) as well as hot showers, fresh water taps and rubbish and recycling facilities.

Please note that all campsites close and must be empty by midday (12noon) on the Monday 20th August following the festival, so raging hangover or not, don’t get locked in and left behind!

Please be a happy camper and clean up after yourself to leave our beautiful site as near as possible to how you found it. Leaving tents/airbeds/people behind is not big or clever


Property Lockup

The Safe and Sound Property Lock-up is brought to you by volunteers from the Greater Manchester Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). It’s open 24 hours a day until 12 noon on Monday in the big, white marquee next to the food stalls in the Disability Camping Area. Property lock-ups are free and they also charge phones for the bargain price of just £3, with all proceeds going to CND.

Stuff we store: bikes, bags, instruments, wallets, keys, mp3 players, anything inanimate.
Stuff we don't store: pets, kids, bombs, guns or other animate or angsty things.

But we’re not just here to raise money - we’d also like you to get a flavour of what we do.

A bit about the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is as relevant now as it was when it was formed 50 years ago. One of our slogans is 'Now More Than Ever' and over the past year when students have been occupying their universities protesting about the hike in fees; when people have been out on the streets protesting about the closure of advice centres, libraries, SureStart centres, maternity units, A&E units, etc, etc, the UK government is still spending £2 billion a year maintaining the Trident nuclear weapons programme.

By scrapping nuclear weapons and the replacement programme for Trident, we would save over £100 billion. Instead, we could invest in the development of marine energy technology and other forms of sustainable energy, providing alternative employment for defence workers and creating tens of thousands of new jobs. It would help meet our carbon emission targets and help meet the TUC’s commitment to the creation of 1 million climate jobs.

This is the sane way forward.

Call in to the Lock Up at the festival to pick up more information on CND's anti-Trident campaign and more. Or visit our website at www.cnduk.org

Live-in vehicles

Green Man has a dedicated campsite specially for campervans and caravans, but before you buy your Live-In Vehicle ticket please read these simple guidelines that we need to stick to for licensing and safety reasons.


Just so we’re clear, a live-in vehicle is one that is specifically adapted for sleeping, such as a camper van or caravan; strictly no cars are allowed onto the campsite unless they are towing a caravan

We now have two types of live in vehicle tickets: Campervan Passes for those under 6m in length and Motorhome/Caravan Passes for those over 6m in length or towed by a car. Please make sure you have the right one or you may be refused entry. There is a maximum 9m length of pitch for Motorhome/Caravan passes, so please ensure your motorhome or caravan and car together are under 9m.

The main Live-in Vehicle Campsite is slightly apart from the other campsites with its own entrance off the A40, so you won’t be very near your friends if they are pitched in the main campsite; there is also a separate, smaller live-in vehicle area just for Settler's Pass holders.

Space in the Live-in Vehicle Campsite is limited, so please note you will only have room for an awning or one small tent next to your vehicle.

On arrival, all live-in vehicles will be allocated to the next available pitch by our staff; unfortunately we can't pre-allocate or reserve spaces so please arrive together if you want to camp with friends.

This area is used as farmland for the rest of the year so please be aware there are no power hook-ups; however, it is lit with garland lights with taps for drinking water, showers, toilets and toilet-emptying facilities.

Please be aware that the land is uneven grass and it is the owner’s responsibility to decide whether the vehicle is suitable for the terrain in varying weather conditions.

Local lodging

If the thought of camping and the great outdoors fills you with dread, why not sample a little Welsh hospitality at one of the many friendly local B&B’s and hotels in the area which will be more than happy to accommodate you. We recommend the following as a starting point:

At Green Man you will find five licensed bars on site, loads of delicious food stalls catering for all tastes, ages and dietary requirements, a general store selling cigarettes, toiletries and essential camping items, a first aid area, a secure lock-up for valuables (run by CND volunteers), lost property, meeting points and cash machines. The toilets will be cleaned regularly, there are hot showers and there are plenty of standpipes supplying fresh water for washing and drinking.

In short, we’ve got it all covered.
