Green Man Rising Opens

New talent competition launched
Green Man Rising

Green Man are looking for new talent as part of their Green Man Rising competition.

Often thought of as a bastion for all manner of nu-folk strands, Green Man is rapidly becoming more and more eclectic. Throwing open the gates to dance music, festival organisers are now launching a competition for new talent.

Green Man Rising is a brand new search for unknown artists, with a slot at the Welsh festival's Mountain Stage on August 16th up for grabs. A panel of judges has been assembled, featuring Huw Stephens (Radio 1), MOJO Magazine’s editor Phil Alexander, Moshi Moshi label boss Stephen Bass, Domino Records A&R/Transparent label boss Jack Shankly, Clash online editor Mike Diver (hello!) and Green Man Booker Ben Coleman.

Ben Coleman commented: "Green Man Rising is inspired by our passion for discovering, supporting and sharing brilliant new music. It costs nothing to take part so if you think you need to be heard, then we can't wait to hear it."

Entrants can submit material to the Green Man website, with the general public able to vote for their favourite across a four week voting stage. The final takes place at the Dublin Castle on July 18th, and will feature one act chosen by the public alongside four newcomers picked by Huw Stephens.

Green Man runs between August 15th - 18th.
