Reviewing Green Man 2021 in a five-star review, NME wrote: “‘Four weeks ago, we didn’t know if this festival would happen,’ Green Man boss Fiona Stewart tells the crowd before Tirzah closed the Welsh event’s first night, and this sense of near-disbelief permeates everything about the event’s first day, as 2021’s festival season kicks on against all odds against the stunning backdrop of Wales’ Brecon Beacons.”
Accepting the trophy, an emotional Parks said: “I’m completely speechless. I don’t even have the words.”
