Green Man Festival

Green Man festival Managing Director Fiona Stewart has taken complete ownership of the annual event, buying out the festival’s other shareholders, founders Danny and Jo Hagan. The ownership change is unlikely to have any noticeable impact on the festival itself, which has been led by former Big Chill manager Stewart since 2006.

Stewart told CMU: “Creatively and organisationally, nothing has changed, the same team who have been organising Green Man for many years are still going to be running it. Green Man has a life of its own now, and remains the fiercely independent, non-corporate and ethically run festival that we all know and love”.

She added: “All of us at Green Man would like to wish the Danny and Jo the very best of luck for the future. Green Man 2011 was our best festival yet, and we can’t wait to start announcing details of what promises to be an absolutely amazing celebration for the tenth annual Green Man in Wales next August.
