Festival No.6 has revealed some surprise special guests including the inimitable writer, actor, comedian and producer Steve Coogan.
The festival, held at the picturesque Italian-style North Wales village of Portmeirion, will witness the comedy genius holding court on the village’s Piazza on Saturday 5th September as part of the entertainment over the four-day event.
In this incredibly rare festival appearance Steve will be in conversation with writer and journalist Amy Raphael as they explore several themes including his exceptional career to date.
The festival has also announced another world first; a one-off live question and answer session with Mark Ronson and director of the new Amy film, Asif Kapadia.
Amy tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse in her own words, featuring extensive unseen archive and previously unheard tracks.
No.6 has produced a special bespoke screening of Amy that will be followed directly by the Q&A, and will be the first time Ronson and Kapadia have appeared in public together to talk about the film.
The third surprise guest is Brit Award-winning soul-pop singer James Morrison, who will be opening the main stage at 2:30pm on the closing day of Festival No.6.
With his eagerly anticipated fourth studio album scheduled for an October release, James will be digging into his prestigious back-catalogue and premiering some brand new material.
An intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture, Festival No.6 takes place between 3rd and 6th September in the magical Italianate village of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner.
Camping at the festival starts from £180 for adults, £80 for 11-15 year-olds and under 10s are free. For more information or to book tickets visit www.festivalnumber6.com
