Friday 19th August-Sunday 21st August,
at Glanusk Park near Abergavenny
For four years we've had the pleasure of invading the Green Man Festival's big top cinema, with past highlights including British Sea Power scoring Man of Aran, a rare live set by Bibio and last year Separado with a Gruff Rhys Q&A. This time around we're sharing Friday night with special guests Ghost Box Records...
