Green Man is cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
The event was set to take place from Thursday 20th to Sunday 23rd August in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, with sets from the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Caribou, Mac DeMarco, Little Dragon, Goldfrapp, Thundercat, Agnes Obel, Parquet Courts, Ty Segall, and loads more.
A statement from organisers reads: “These are the words we hoped we would never have to write, but it’s with deep sadness that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we’re announcing that Green Man won’t be taking place this year, re-emerging instead 19th – 22nd August 2021. To say we’re sad about this is an understatement – but after many tense weeks analysing the situation, we have had to make this very hard decision.
“Our number one priority will always be your safety, as well as the artists, crew and traders who are a much loved part of our Green Man family. We know the coming months will be hugely testing for all of us, but together we believe we can emerge from this time stronger and more connected than ever before.”
