Get your ribs ready for the tickling of their lives: our LAST LAUGH line-up for Green Man 2017 is gonna be all kinds of funny. It's been too long but we’re chuffed to welcome back JOSIE LONG to Green Man. Her chipper tales and relatable musings have made for marvellous fun in previous GMs; We can’t wait to hear her inevitably-hilarious take on recent events at this year’s festival.
It wouldn't be Green Man without, ROB DEERING, whose music-meets-comedy genius combines loop pedal-powered soundscapes with razor sharp joketelling.
JEN BRISTER joins us to try to figure out the point of Snapchat, the advantages of middle age and to explore what it means to be gay parent in 2017. Larger than life Kiwi funny-man JARRED CHRISTMAS brings hilarity, hip-hop and infectious enthusiasm to GM17. PLUS we welcome LAZY SUSAN, the upcoming Geordie double act whose incredible romcom routine Extreme Humans has caused equal amounts of guffawing and awww-ing up and down the country.
Who else, you ask? Well, try this assorted bunch of incredible comic talent for size:
JOSIE LONG, ROB DEERING, JEN BRISTER, JARRED CHRISTMAS, LAZY SUSAN, MARK OLVER, LOLLY ADEFOPE, TOM WRIGGLESWORTH, EMMA SIDI, AMIR KHOSHOKAN, LAURA LEXX, ALISTAIR BARRIR, BEAT THIS, EXTREME SPORTS WITH JAMES HANCOX, DOUG SEGAL, OWEN NIBLOCK AND LOADS MORE TO STILL BE ANNOUNCED.
PLUS We still have a few more musical names to announce. We’ll be taking a look at what’s going on in Little Folk and Somewhere next week, plus we’ve still got our packed Cinedrome line-up for you and we’ll be bringing you word from Babbling Tongues just after Easter. Keep your eyes peeled for more news soon!
Green Man is also bringing a little bit of Wales to the heart of London with this year’s Courtyard, a Welsh Beer and Cider Festival with great live music across five days. We’ve announced sets from Pinegrove, Dutch Uncles, Dungen, Huw Stephens and more. Plus we’ll have workshops, talks from the Brewers, walkabout theatre and twmpaths all weekend long.

Back of Beyond makes a triumphant return at Green Man 2017 with an incendiary assortment of dance, circus and performing arts.

As well as being the year of our 15th birthday (!!!), 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of Green Man Rising: our annual showdown between the best unsigned acts in the UK. ️
We're often asked what the Settlement is all about.. Here's a beautiful film shot during last year's Settler's Pass to give you a good idea!
