As the always-spectacular Green Man officially launches for 2016, we at Hotel Bell Tent have been left agog at the incredible line-up, featuring some of 2015’s stand out acts as well as some firm favourites, which will surely consolidate the festival’s reputation for showcasing the best of live indie, folk and electronic music.

The wonderfully offbeat Wild Beasts will be a headlining act not to miss as they bring their distinctive sound to Green Man’s gorgeous settings, and we’ll be hoping that their most recent album Present Tense gets a good hearing – and holding our breath for some new material as well.

As well as atmospheric festival favourites Belle & Sebastian and the Grammy-nominated superstar producer James Blake, we are over the moon to hear that the woman behind one of 2015’s most lauded albums, Julia Holter, will be playing. The anticipation of hearing this beautiful number floating by combined with Green Man’s incomparable view of the Brecon Beacons will keep us going until August:

And with the neuroscientist-cum-electronica wonder Floating Points, spectacular live act Battles, and 2015 success story (with good reason) Ezra Furman representing mere drops in the festival’s impressive ocean of talent – the Green Man line-up will be hard to beat for music lovers this year.

If you’re looking to enjoy all that Green Man has to offer with the minimum of fuss, Hotel Bell Tent has launched our 2016 packages and will be back again at our beautiful riverside location, spread over three areas, with the ability to choose your preferred location (depending on availability!).
