Festival No. 6, the spectacular finale of the UK’s summer festival , has revealed legendary Mancunian indie rockers James as the surprise co-headline act on Sunday night.
Following critical acclaim for last year’s La Petite Mort album, the band has been on the road entertaining huge crowds with sets blending classic hits and more contemporary material from their impressive back catalogue.
Jim Glennie from James says “I love Portmeirion and I can’t believe we are going to play a gig there. The festival looks amazing. Can’t wait.”
Joe Duddell, No. 6 Composer –in – Residence, will be returning for a fourth year to present another series of exclusive and intimate Town Hall Sessions in the beautiful surroundings of the historic Portmeirion Town Hall. Joe will be collaborating with Gaz Coomes, Edwyn Collins, Jane Weaver and Rae Morris on new material, as well as some old favourites, all performed with the wonderful No.6 Ensemble.
Other new No.6 announcements include Arthur Baker, the world-renowned New York hip-hop producer, headlining the Virgin Village Limits stage in the woods with its now-famous floating dance floor.
There will also be a sneak preview of the new Kill Your Friends movie, a darkly humorous satire on the UK music business at the height of Britpop. John Niven, author of the original novel, will also be in conversation with literary legend Irvine Welsh, the director Owen Harris and producers Will Clarke and Gregor Cameron as they explore the story and how it translates to film.
Festival No.6 is an intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture, taking place over the weekend of the 3rd-6th September in the magical village of Portmeirion, Wales. With many more music acts, new venues and world famous chefs yet to be revealed, the fourth Festival No.6 is certain to be the most impressive to date.
