Green Man 2021 was a successful return for the festival after 2020’s forced cancellation, welcoming 20,000 returning Green Man fans and newcomers back to the foot of the stunning Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons. They were treated to outstanding performances from headliners Mogwai, Caribou, Fontaines D.C. and Tirzah, while Thundercat, Self Esteem and Black Midi provided stand out moments alongside a fantastic line-up of music, theatre, comedy, science and arts.
Away from the music, the festival’s pioneering science and education area, Einstein’s Garden, once again showcased discussions, stalls and experiments for children and adults alike, and Green Man welcomed a unique programme of Visual Art including installations that looked deeply into the natural world from artists Gweni Llwyd, Freya Dooley, Beth Kettel, and Kristina Pulejkova.
Green Man’s Babbling Tongues area hosted a wealth of literature, talks and musical debates during the day, and a stellar line-up of comedy talent at night. The Little Folk children’s area continues to pioneer family-centric fun at UK festivals with a broad programme of entertainment and interactive exhibitions; this year’s theme was the prehistoric ‘Land Before’.
