Green Man Festival

People at a festival

Now in its 12th year, the Green Man festival returns to the Brecon Beacons in Wales from 20-23 August.

This intimate festival in the Black Mountains hosts several entertainment areas, with music, comedy, poetry, literature, art and science all taking to different stages over the four days.

You can also pop over to the Met Office stand in Einstein's Garden to chat to a climate scientist and get hands-on with some weather related experiments. You can take on our scientists at climate change roulette, or demonstrate your climate prediction skills with our special pack of cards. Met Office folk will be on hand to chat about the science and technology that helps us understand the past and plan for the future, as well as helping younger visitors with hands-on activities, including our ever-popular cloud in a bottle experiment.

Some of the headline acts this year include:

  • Jamie XX
  • Hot Chip
  • Courtney Barnett
  • Super Furry Animals
