Last night, the 20th anniversary edition of Green Man, Wales’ largest music, science and arts festival came to a close. During its 20th Birthday weekend the festival has seen stellar headline performances from Metronomy, Kraftwerk, Beach House and Michael Kiwanuka, as well as brilliant sets from fan favourites including Kae Tempest, Yves Tumor, Alex G, Bicep, Arooj Aftab, Parquet Courts, Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler and an array of Welsh talent including Gruff Rhys, Cate Le Bon, Melin Melyn, Adwaith and more.
Alongside the brilliant music, there were stimulating talks across the Babbling Tongues area from the likes of Travis Alabanza and Ash Kenazi, comedy from the rib-tickling Lolly Adefope, Shaparak Khorsandi, Mark Steel and more. There was groundbreaking science taking place in Einstein’s Garden, including a collaboration with King’s College London on their new Weather The Weather climate change installation. The first pride parade to take place at a Welsh festival also attracted a huge crowd on Saturday afternoon, marching through the site in glorious colour to mark 50 years of Pride.
