Festival No.6 make 3 massive announcements including special guest Steve Coogan!
Festival No.6 has revealed a trio of surprise special guests including actor, writer, comedian and producer Steve Coogan.
The comedy genius will be holding court on the beautiful Piazza of Portmeirion village on Saturday afternoon. 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. To call it a Festival No.6 highlight would be an understatement.
The festival is also proud to announce yet another world first, a one-off live Q&A 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, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that few can. No.6 has produced a very special bespoke screening of Amy that will be followed directly by the Q&A, the first time Ronson and Kapadia have appeared in public together to talk about the film.
Finally, the festival is delighted to announce a very special guest, Brit Award winning soul-pop sensation 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 over the weekend of the 4-6 September in the magical Italianate village of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner.
