GREEN Man truly excelled itself this year in the only fitting way it could to celebrate its 15th anniversary - with outstanding headliners.

The festival in Glanusk Park near Crickhowell had exclusive headliners from PJ Harvey, Ryan Adams and Future Islands.

And all three performers absolutely pulled it out of the bag and had the crowd in front of the glorious Mountain Stage roaring for more.

PJ Harvey was particularly spectacular on the Sunday night with an awe-inspiring voice and an incredible band. She has a stage presence like no other.

The festival is a great introduction to festivals. It is friendly, accessible and extremely family orientated.

That is not to say that there aren't plenty of rave opportunities.

I spent a lot of my time this year in the Far Out Tent. There were so many amazing, high-energy bands to watch. Liars were a stand-out performance with relentless energy and charisma.

Other bands who had me wanting more were The Big Moon, Hinds, Allah-Las, Sunflower Bean and The Oh Sees.

But there is truly so many varied genres of music across all the fantastic stages including the up-tempo beats of Chai Wallahs and new acts at the Rising stage.

The food at the festival deserves a special mention as it is all so very good from vegetarian sushi rolls to Vietnamese street food to American-style burgers. You will always be well-fed at Green Man.

The festival finishes on the Sunday night with the ritual burning of the Green Man, who this year had a red dragon curling around him.

Green Man is such a beautiful festival with the backdrop of wonderful Welsh mountains. Don't hesitate to book your tickets for next year-you won't regret it.
