This was my 5th Green Man, and my first suffering from a footballing injury (plantar fasciitis, thanks for asking) and it made it a different kind of festival. I'm not complaining, especially as I saw plenty of people on crutches and using wheelchairs enjoying themselves, but it made me much more chilled. In 2009 I rushed madly from stage to stage trying to fill every minute with music, which was frantic but very rewarding. I've calmed down a bit since but still normally clock up a lot of miles. But with walking painful I went with the flow far more, and found you can have a really good time just sitting and waiting for what comes next, and I heard some good bands I may not have heard otherwise.
The real frustration was that I can't stand for long at a time, and while most acts can be enjoyed ina low chair (even if it is odd being entiely surrounded by people standing up) I really couldn't enjoy Fuck Buttons like that and had to leave after only 20 minutes, which was almost as much of a disappointment as getting the time wrong and missing British Sea Power. But Laura J Martin, Olof Arnalds, Annie Dressner, Keston Cobblers and Stornoway were all great sitting down. And Swans kept me standing for too long by sheer force of noise
I didn't do all I wanted, but still had a great time, and I doff my cap to those who come with far greater mobility problems and also have a great time
