POWYS’ iconic Green Man festival has broken its own record from last year, by selling out of tickets for its 2024 event in a little over two hours.

Green Man, Wales’ largest music, science and arts festival, has sold all of its tickets for next summer’s event, breaking its record sales last year – despite not even releasing the line-up yet.

Now in its 22nd year, it is the first 2024 UK festival to have sold out in record time. Tickets to the 25,000 capacity-a-day festival tickets went on sale at 10am on Saturday (September 30) and promptly sold out just after midday.


The 2024 festival takes place from August 15-18 in the Black Mountains, within the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, in Powys.

Fiona Stewart, director of Green Man, said: “Wow, you’ve done it again and Green Man has sold out in record time.

“A huge thank you to all who bagged the tickets for Green Man 24, we are so grateful and can't wait for you to join us in the magical Black Mountains of Bannau Brycheiniog. We hope that those who missed out this year can join us in the many years to come.

“As one of the three remaining large independent music festivals in the UK, your support is massively appreciated and your trust and loyalty really keeps the fire in our belly and why we do this. Keep an eye out as we unveil GM24 acts in early 2024.”  

County Times:

As well as ten music stages, Green Man also houses a pioneering science engagement area, Einstein’s Garden, which showcases discussions, stalls and experiments for kids and adults alike.

There is also a health and wellness area, arts exhibitions, performing artists, comedy, literature, children’s areas, and, of course, Green Man’s very own Welsh beer and cider festival at The Courtyard.

This year Green Man was nominated as ‘Best Festival in the World’ in the NME awards at Brixton Academy. Known for innovation and influence, many new ideas and emerging artists have launched their concepts and careers at the festival.
