Green Man Poll goes into Round 2, with just a week left to vote


The second round of voting for the Green Man 2011 poll has been announced, and there’s just a week left to vote.

A record 518 unsigned bands entered, but only one can open Green Man 2011 with the gig of a lifetime on our prestigious Main Stage.

We need YOU to help pick five lucky finalists from the 20 brilliant acts who made it through to Round 2. But hurry, voting ends on July 7th – that’s next Thursday! The remaining 20 acts are:

Adam Barnes / Alice / Celestino Telera / Crash.Disco! / Dignan Porch / Goan Dogs / Goonies Never Say Die / Hullaballo / Hunting Bears / Kowalski / LeeSun / Marthas & Arthurs / Mr Beasley / Rustie Shackle / Sen Segur / The FiftyFours / The SeaZora /The Skeleton Dead / Will and the People / Wolf Alice

BBC Radio1 DJ Huw Stephens was blown away by the quality of this year’s Green Poll entries, picking 10 of his personal favourites to join the top 10 bands with the most public votes after Round 1.

Over 20,000 individual users registered on our special Facebook app, with thousands of votes being cast from the UK, USA, Ireland, France, Australia, Italy, Canada and across the globe.

So far Round 2 looks like it could our closest vote ever – who will make the Green Poll Live Final at the Camden Monarch, London, on July 14th?

Well done to all the bands that entered – the response to Green Poll 2011 has been overwhelming. Now YOUR vote could make the difference!
