IBIBIO SOUND MACHINE
Fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine is a clash of African and electronic music inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk, disco, modern post-punk, and electro. The result? And irresistible and unmissable live experience!Read more...
Drastic on Plastic
In 2017 we removed all plastic cups, cutlery and food packaging from the festival. This year we’ve gone one step further.
When it comes to your drinking water over the weekend, we would love you to bring your own re-usable bottle from home. And, if you don’t have one, then you can pre-order one of our lovely stainless steel bottles to pick up onsite.Pre-order bottle

Of Keralan (Indian) descent via Texas and California, Winnie is acutely aware of the importance of racial identity and the rising racial tensions in America – and beyond. A regular blogger for the Huffington Post and a respected theological writer, her life’s mission has been to fight for justice of those society leaves behind – from the mentally ill, to the poor and marginalised.

Can you Bell-ieve it? ????
That’s right. Friend of Greenbelt and all-round good chap Rob Bell is coming back to the UK and Ireland in July with his brand new Holy Shift tour. And we’re hosting him!
For the uninitiated, Rob’s a world-renowned speaker who’s not afraid to challenge people and question traditional biblical teaching. We couldn’t be more excited to have him here.Tour dates and booking

Simon Mayo: Mad Blood Stirring
To longterm Greenbelters, Simon Mayo needs no introduction. He is a dear friend...
For me, as a British Muslim, Greenbelt is a spiritual home …
Greenbelt is unique in so far as it’s a festival that nourishes the spectrum of human experience. It’s not just a reverie of licentiousness, but it nourishes the spirit, intellect and soul of artists and attendees.
I can only describe Greenbelt as a family, as a home …
Performing at Greenbelt is one of the highlights of my career, one of the most memorable gigs I’ve ever done. The vibe in the audience. the interaction. Just … love!
I walked out and found myself saying: "Salaam Alaykum.” And they all came back with "wa-Alaykum Salaam.” And that made me feel totally welcome.
Have to say, Greenbelt totally surprised me... after Glastonbury, my favourite festival this year
I believe in dialogue, and that’s what Greenbelt is all about
People here are very questioning, not merely of other people, but of their own thoughts and beliefs too.
Greenbelt is a mind-opening event.
It’s extremely welcoming. It’s easy for people to come along and feel at home. Wherever they come from.
Greenbelt is part of my mental furniture.
What a beautiful peaceful festival, filled with sensitive spirited folks.
