With the hazy memories of the festival season still at the forefront of our minds, it’s easy to wish the year away until it all starts again. Now, with multi-award winning Festival No.6 announcing their first headliner for 2018, we can!
THE THE is the very first act to be announced for the boutique festival – the bands only confirmed UK date outside London.
Festival No.6 is an intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture. Taking place over the weekend of the 6-9 September 2018, in the magical village of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner.
With many more music acts, and a huge arts and cultural line-up, new venues, and Michelin starred-chefs yet to be revealed the seventh Festival No.6 is certain to be the most impressive to date.
THE THE being one of the most important acts of the new wave era, and a beacon of passion and truth in Thatcher’s Britain that influenced an entire genre. After a long hiatus of 15 years, Matt Johnson has returned with new material and will perform top billing at the festival in 2018, amongst a series of sold-out concerts.
This won’t be the first time Matt has visited Portmeirion, on discussing the announcement with him, he says;
“I first visited beautiful Portmeirion as a child in the 1960s and have returned on holiday many times over the years. I’m also still a huge fan of The Prisoner. In recent years I’ve watched with great interest in how Festival No.6 has grown into the most vibrant music, arts and culture festival in the UK. We are delighted to be headlining in 2018 and look forward to contributing to a fantastic festival with lots of wonderful people in the most idyllic setting imaginable.”
Acts will perform across the entire site, by the whimsical Italianate architecture of the village, the historic town hall, piazza, Bristol Colonnade, the picturesque Estuary stage, the atmospheric woods and the promenade along the River Dwyryd.
