NEWS: Festival No. 6 announce Woodlands line-up


Date:  3rd – 6th September
Location:  Portmeirion, North Wales

Festival No.6 has announced the line-up for their highly anticipated Woodland programme. For the first time Lost in the Woods stage will be curated by artists, including Badly Drawn Boy, Dutch Uncles and Jane Weaver.

The line-up will feature Mercury-winner Badly Drawn Boy as well as John Shuttleworth, The Wedding Present, Jez Kerr, Songs For Walter and The Walk.  The Wedding Present will be performing a stripped back set exclusively for the festival.

Playing the festival for the third time, Badly Drawn Boy said: “It’s an honour to curate the Lost in the Woods stage. It’s also a treat to have some very good mates join me across the day. Some of them are hopefully going to do a few covers from Bewilderbeast too so it should be a laugh. Festival No. 6 is one of the best festivals I’ve been to and playing the Lost in the Woods stage as the sun sets over the estuary is something very special.”

Saturday headliners, Dutch Uncles, will be supported by Cuz (the current project of The Stooges, Minutemen, and fIREHOSE‘s Mike Watt), Slug, Aldous RH, Aero Flynn and Manchester’s Menage a Trois.

Jane Weaver will top the Woodland bill on the final day of the festival with a Bird Records showcase featuring a deliciously diverse bill from folk femme fatale Emma Tricca to a DJ set from the co-founder of The Quietus John Doran, psychedelic popsters Novella and experimental duo Let’s Eat Grandma.

This year the festival has also commissioned a site-specific creation from the aerial acrobats Whispering Woods. Throughout the weekend, acrobats will swing from the trees in the Gwyllt Woods, bringing ancient tales to life using circus acrobatics, live music and narrative to create a magical experience for all ages.
