If there's one festival in Britain where people are ready for the rain, it's the Green Man. After all, nobody goes to the Brecon Beacons to sunbathe, right? The weekend, which began the spate of boutique and specialist festivals that dominate the summer season now, remains one of the most spirited in the UK, and its crowd seems to be one of the hardiest even when, as this year, the deluge is near-continuous.


What a magical weekend! We had an amazing time playing and watching some of our favourite bands. Personal highlight for me was Tallest Man On Earth playing with Megafaun and also Flaming Lips performing Do You Realize?? Incredibly emotive.
