Green Man has joined the long list of UK festivals which have been forced to cancel their plans for 2020.
The event had been due to host one of the year’s best line-ups – with artists such as Goldfrapp, Parquet Courts, black midi, Shame, Nadine Shah, The Murder Capital, Torres, Boy Azooga, Working Men’s Club, Liz Lawrence, Bambara and Sinead O’Brien all set to join headliners Michael Kiwanuka, Caribou, Little Dragon and Mac DeMarco in the Brecon Beacons this August – so with tickets automatically rolling over to 2021 it might well be worth hanging on to them.
“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,” the organisers’ statement opens. “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.”
