For the first time, we are proud to welcome Island to Festival No.6.
Just a little over a year ago, London 4 piece Island announced themselves with debut EP ‘Girl’. First single ‘Stargazer’ started an industry chain reaction many only dream about from behind bedroom doors. Sitting at close to 2 million Spotify streams, it didn’t so much thrust them into the limelight as it catapulted it squarely on them. After just a handful of shows, the band found themselves in an almost dreamlike state headlining the 800 capacity Scala in Kings Cross in November last year.
We can’t wait to see their performance in The Grand Pavilion this September. Island with Joe Duddell & the No. 6 Ensemble
Composer-in-Residence Joe Duddell teams up with indie band Island for a very special collaboration between the band and the No. 6 Ensemble, created especially for Festival No. 6. Performing with an 8 piece classical ensemble for the first time the band will reimagine their songs in front an intimate audience the historic setting of Portmeirion Town Hall.
