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.”
This year will be the fourth edition of Festival No. 6 and they are celebrating by rewarding festival goers with its best line-up to date. Festival No. 6 prides itself on being about much more than just the music it provides an intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture taking place across the whole site. Portmeirion provides a totally unique backdrop for the festival and the festival aims to make full use of the site to provide a unique and immersive festival experience.
This years festival is taking place over the weekend of the 3-6 September when those lucky enough to grab a ticket will be treated to an eclectic mix of Male Voice Choirs, supported by the likes of Mercury Prize winner Badly Drawn Boy and rapper Kate Tempest.
