Laura Marling added to Green Man 2011


Brit Award winner Laura Marling has been added to the line up for this year’s Greenman Festival.

A leading light of contemporary British folk, Laura was one of the stars of last year’s festival, telling thousands of Green Man fans: “This is the one I’ve been waiting to play!”

We are doubly delighted to announce that Laura will return for a guest appearance on the Main Stage at Green Man 2011 on Sunday August 21st.

A bewitching performer with a spellbinding voice and a truly beguiling stage presence, it is no coincidence that her two albums to date were both nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

I Speak Because I Am, released to critical acclaim in 2010, was a staggeringly confident coming of age record that married rich American instrumentation with a thoroughly English, unapologetically female sophistication.

Laura was also crowned Best Female Solo Artist at this year’s Brits, making it all the more remarkable that such a mature songwriting talent only turned 21 earlier this year.

With a much-anticipated third album nearing completion, Laura joins our superb headliners Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine and Explosions In The Sky at the top of our ever-expanding bill for Green Man 2011.

We can’t wait to welcome her back with open arms for what promises to be another unmissable Green Man moment – we know all you fine, friendly folk out there will do the same!

The Festival Site:
The Green Man Festival site is situated in the Brecon Beacons, crossed by the River Usk and enveloped by rolling countryside and breathtaking mountains and hills. It is, in a word, idyllic. We encourage everyone to explore this wonderful site, and make the most of the surroundings. Wide open spaces contrast with intimate moments. Natural beauty blends with community spirit. Camping is limited to one week of the year – Green Man festival. It’s a unique opportunity to camp in surroundings unlikely to be found at a commercial campsite.
The Main Stage is located in a natural grassy amphitheatre. Sprawl out on lush green slopes while watching world-class artists perform against the mystical backdrop of Sugar Loaf Mountain. The formal gardens are used for Einstein’s Garden where art installations, stalls and entertainment are positioned between rose arbours and flowerbeds.
The Courtyard Bar is situated in a Gothic Victorian Stables (keep your eyes peeled for the bats at night) and makes for an ideal halfway meet-up point for the festival. From the Stables you can follow an avenue of ancient trees decorated with garland lights where stalls sell delicious global food and quality crafts. From the avenue, you can enter the walled garden where the Green Man Pub hums until the wee hours. The Green Man Pub is an intimate space where you can drink a superb selection of ales, beers, cider and cocktails while relaxing at sturdy wooden tables and chairs as glorious music wafts across from the Pub Stage. After the avenue of trees, the space opens up to the Science and Literature tents. Near here is the bonfire area, a focal point for late-night jamming from dusk till dawn. The Far Out big top is also nearby, and when the sun goes down the Far Out After Dark keeps the fun alive long past the witching hour, fuelled by the nearby End Up Bar which is open very, very late indeed.
And once you’ve got your bearings, why not pay a visit the all-seeing, all-knowing Green Man himself? He might just make you wish come true…
