Green Man Rising is now open!
Green Man Rising is a unique opportunity for artists to showcase their work to the most prestigious tastemakers, influencers, music blogs and music sites who work alongside Green Man Festival.
Green Man listens to each band who submits music and whittle down a shortlist of 20 semi-finalists. We ask each of our music and tastemakers partners to submit their top 6 acts from this shortlist – before inviting the top ranking 5 acts to perform at the Rising Final at the iconic music venue the Dublin Castle on the 1st of July in front of a panel of industry judges including Phil Alexander (Mojo), Molly O’Brien (Beggars Banquet Publishing), Michael McClatchey (Moshi Moshi), Claire Reilly (The Agency Group), Jack Shankly (Domino Records) and Green Man’s very own Ben Coleman. Each of the five finalists will also play the festival on our Green Man Rising stage.
The winner of Green Man Rising will open the exalted Mountain Stage at this year’s Green Man on the same bill as Hot Chip, Super Furry Animals and St Vincent and perform in front of 20,000 people.
There is no application fee to enter Green Man Rising.
