James- Festival No6

Festival No. 6 Adds A Surprise Fourth Headliner

Festival No. 6 has this morning made a surprise and doubtless welcome announcement.  As if the line-up wasn’t already good enough the festival have announced that Mancunian indie rockers JAMES will co-headline Sunday night at this years Festival.

James join Metronomy, Grace Jones and Belle & Sebastian in headlining the unique boutique festival based in beautiful Portmeirion, Wales.  Supported by up and coming stars like James Bay and Catfish and the Bottlemen and British Sea Power this years festival No. 6 has arguably the best and most eclectic musical line-up of any small festival on this years circuit.

Jim Glennie from James echoed the thoughts of many when he said ‘I love Portmeirion and I can’t believe we are going to play a gig there. The festival looks amazing. Can’t wait.”

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
