This May bank holiday, Welsh music festival organiser Green Man returns to King’s Cross with a beast of a beer festival.

Courtyard, Green Man Festival, King's CrossGreat beer

Over 140 of the best Welsh beers and ciders from independent breweries will be on offer. This really is a treat for beer and cider connoisseurs.

Great music

Green Man festivals are renowned for their music line-ups, and Courtyard is no different.

Pinegrove will be topping the party, bringing their emphatically endearing country-rock with them; Swedish export and GM favourites Dungen join us too; and following the release of their fifth album last month, Dutch Uncles will light up King’s Cross with their brilliantly witty, hip-swivelling left-field music. Plus founding member of The Coral, Bill Ryder-JonesHuw Stevens on the decks and many more.

Here is the music line-up so far.

Thursday 25th – Pinegrove, Kane Strange, Huw Stephens (DJ), Green Man DJs, The Spring Heeled Jacks (Twmpath Band)

Friday 26th – Dutch Uncles, Leif Erikson, Green Man DJs, The Spring Heeled Jacks (Twmpath Band)

Saturday 27th – Soccer96, The Proper Ornaments, Josefin Ohrn + The Liberation, Rozi Plain, Bill Ryder-Jones, Slug, Gordi, Green Man DJs,

Sunday 28th – Dungen, Menace Beach, The Wave Pictures, Mauno, Throws, Bartonar, Icelandic Male Voice Choir, Gareth Bonello

Monday 29th – London Astrobeat Orchestra – Talking Heads Tribute, Hannah Peel, Chelou, Cobalt Chapel, Green Man DJs

Great fun

Expect weird and wonderful walkabout performances, puppet making, facepainting, street dance workshops, a kid’s disco, puppet theatre plus much much more. And there will be a daily twmpath (a Welsh ceilidh for those who don’t know!).

Great food

Wrap your chops around a sizzling selection of Welsh street food. Straight from the top of the bank at the back of Mountain’s Foot, The Grazing Shed will serve up their Super Tidy Burgers, delicious international flavours served on hand made corn tortillas from The Bearded Taco and FFWRNES will serve the most delicious Welsh stone-baked pizza all weekend.
