Details of the Town Hall Sessions have been revealed for Festival No. 6, which takes place at the strange magical village of Portmeirion, Wales between Thursday 6th and Sunday 9th September 2018.
Joining the resident composer Joe Duddell and the No.6 Ensemble will be No.6 stalwarts The Charlatans (pictured above); an innovative slant on rare tracks by Everything Everything with no cross-over to their mainstage set; London-based electronic quartet Haelos; synth-pop dance supergroup Shadow Party; Bristolian singer-songwriter Fenne Lily; and stripped down versions of the hits from Tim Burgess & Mark Collins.
Joe Duddell commented on his residency and the town hall sessions:
"My residency at Festival No. 6 is always a creative highlight of the year. Festival No.6's commitment to original programming is so refreshing; the sheer quantity of sets we've performed - 22 original works since the festival started - and the creativity they encourage.
"I not only get to choose the artists I collaborate with, we are free to do whatever we want. Add to that the unique performance environment, Portmeirion Town Hall, with its stunning architecture and intense audience connection and you've got a one-off experience. It's magical - people don't watch through their phones, they choose to be in the moment with us."
The festival's headliners have been confirmed as Franz Ferdinand, The The, and Friendly Fires, with other performances coming from:- Manchester Camerata Orchestra, Jessie Ware, Django Django, Ride, Anna Calvi, The Horrors, A Certain Ratio, Gaz Coombes, and more, with more to be announced.
