Green Man Music Festival 2009
August 6, 7, 8th—Glanusk Park, Wales

This summer festival has hot acts like Bon Iver, British Sea Power, No Thee No Ess, Peggy Sue, and Martin Carr. More than 100 acts will crowd 5 stages, and if you could ever get bored of the music, there are also art installations, literature and film tents, Welsh poetry, Nature and Nurture massage therapy, and organic food stalls. Obviously, this event is all about helping Mother Earth, so the festival coordinators have organised a Green Bus to take you and your knapsack right into the festival site from most City destinations. If you’re farther away, a free shuttle bus service from Abergevanny Train Station is available.

Bloom Festival 2009
August 14-16th—Glouchestershire in Cheltenham

Bloom festival is about as close as you’ll come to Never Never Land in this lifetime. Laugh, dance until you’re sore, make quirky friends, and forget about that nasty boss or overdue credit bills. This weekend is all about pure, unadulterated fun, and lots of it. Hilarious skits, circus acts, and fire shows, combined with four arena’s worth of high-tech musical brilliance?
