This weekend one of Wales' best festivals will open its gates at the Glanusk Estate in the Brecon Beacons, on the outskirts of Crickhowell.

I've been to every single Green Man since hosting a stage there in 2004, with 1,000 merry friends walking around the Baskerville Hall - the previous year just 300 friends gathered.

This year it'll be over 11,000 at the sold out site ready to party to headliners Doves, Flaming Lips, and Joanna Newsom, as well as dozens of stunning artists from all around the world from Efterklang to Laura Marling - Green Man is always a place for firsts and a family, community, musical environment.

As you can see I'm a huge fan, and I'll report back with photos from the weekend, but in preperation for a weekend in the Welsh mountains, I caught up on Radio One with Jo Bartlett, founder with partner Danny of the festival, to see where things are at this year.

Here's a clip of our chat:

Jo also did a special Greenman mix for the show - head to our website to listen back from tomorrow: www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/bethanelfyn

This weekend I'll be broadcasting live from the site for BBC Radio Wales, hijacking the Greenman Radio studios from 6.30pm, tune in anywhere!
