Four Tet and more have been added to the Green Man line-up as the festival brought in druids to bless it with unabated sunshine.

Finally, in a touch to secure Green Man punters with a full weekend of sun and a good old tan to boot, organisers secured the services of five druids fresh from the annual Stonehenge gathering last Friday.

Fiona Stewart, Green Man Director said: "It's a tradition that we have a site visit at the start of spring and sample the first cider of the season. This time we thought why not go one further and organise some really scorching weather. This blessing will bring guaranteed sunshine to all festivals this summer – it's amazing no-one's ever thought of doing this before."

Rollo Maughfling, Archdruid of Glastonbury and Stonehenge added: "We performed a genuine Druids' blessing ceremony to celebrate the Spring Equinox, bless the Green Man Festival site, and the Green Man Festival itself in August. At Green Man's request we extended the blessing to include other festivals, so they are sunny and warm too."

There you have it, an eclectic mix of artists and plenty of rays are guaranteed for all at the festival which takes place at Glanusk Park, nestled within the Brecon Beacons, from 21 – 23 August.

A host of ticket options are available for all ages whilst a special 'Holiday Ticket', which allows festival-goers to extend their stay for a further three-days and make the event a holiday as well as a festival, is available for an extra £30.
