What/where is it?
If you can contend with the possibility of rain whipping off the Brecon Beacons - although to be fair, no festival in the UK is immune to such elements - this intimate and charming ten-year-old Welsh festival in the Black Mountains offers arguably the most beautiful festival site in the UK, and some wonderfully eclectic acts to boot.

Why will the family love it?
As Green Man Festival goer Katie Smith puts it: “It's a really lovely festival for families, quite mellow with a big kids’ area. It's small and enclosed, so you don't feel like they could disappear off. It's set in really beautiful grounds, so you can escape and sit under a tree with the kids if they need to run around a bit. Food is great too.
“Also, they have a dedicated family camping area so it feels quite supportive and you haven't got drunken teenagers trying to get into your tent by mistake at three in the morning.”
