MORE ARTS & CULTURE ARTISTS ANNOUNCED

MORE ARTS & CULTURE ARTISTS ANNOUNCED

We’re excited to announce some more incredible artists to our extensive Arts & Culture programme.

We’re delighted to welcome back the mighty Andrew Weatherall, DJ, producer, collaborator and bastion of the underground. Andrew will be curating his own stage at this year – Andrew Weatherall’s Psychedelic Faber Social. Andrew and the Faber Social have been integral to Festival No.6 from day one and Andrew was also Faber Social’s inaugural artist-in-residence, so expect something special as they join forces to celebrate all things psychedelia.

Andrew has put together a brilliant bill of fellow authors and artists including Turner-prize winner Jeremy Deller, Jon Savage, Welsh glam wrestler Adrian Street, Richard Milward, Michael Cumming, Rob Young, Michael Peterson and Finitribe. There will be a double bill of Jeremy Deller films, plus screenings of Oxide Ghosts – The Brass Eyes tapes, and the 1999 CAN documentary, all accompanied by Q&As. The Woodleigh Research Facility (Andrew Weatherall’s band) will perform two exclusive pieces of music – Andrew Weatherall’s First LSD Adventure and Andrew Weatherall’s Final LSD Adventure, written especially for Festival No.6.

Award-winning journalist and novelist Carole Cadwalladr joins the Central Piazza line-up. Making headlines around the world, Carole broke the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook story earlier this year that sent shockwaves to the very heart of western democracy and forced everyone to reassess the way we use social media not to mention causing the closure of Cambridge Analytica. She’ll be talking about how she uncovered the scandal and what this watershed moment means for the future.

We’re also proud to announce Turner Prize winner Jeremy Deller and the amazing Welsh glam wrestler Adrian Street to Festival No.6. A former coal miner, Adrian’s first professional wrestling match was on 8 August 1957, and he went on to a hugely successful career as a wrestler in America in the 70s and 80s. After his final match in 2010, he estimated he had wrestled up to 15,000 times. Now 77, he has retired and moved back to Wales, and will be at No.6 for a Q&A and a screening of the film Deller made about him. 

Jeremy Deller said: “Adrian Street is a wrestler I first became aware of through a photograph showing him with his father in 1973, which seemed to me possibly the most important photograph taken post-war. It encapsulates the whole history of Britain in that period – of our uneasy transition from being a centre of heavy industry to a producer of entertainment and services. It’s a rather bizarre and disturbing photograph, taken when Adrian went back to Wales, to the mine that he had worked in as a young man, to meet his father. Adrian is an incredible person, who has tremendous willpower and a great sense of his own worth. His story has an epic quality to it, he has basically reinvented himself for the late twentieth century.”

To mark 100 years of suffrage, Helen Pankhurst will also be speaking at the Central Piazza. The great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst and granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, the iconic leaders of the British suffragette movement, Helen will be reading from and discussing her brilliant new book, Deeds Not Words: The Story of Women’s Rights Then and Now.

Dr Scilla Ellworthy has been three times nominated for the Nobel Prize for Peace for her work to develop effective dialogue between nuclear weapons policy makers and their critics. Scilla also founded Peace Direct and Rising Women Rising World – both ventures designed to promote and learn from local peace builders around the world.  She’ll be at the festival to talk about women and worldwide peace processes outlining the contribution we can all make to create a peaceful planet.

"Small festivals always claim to offer something a bit different, but set in what can only be described as the magical fantasy land of Portmeirion, Festival No. 6 really does."

Marie Claire

— PRESS —
"Since its inception in 2012, Festival No. 6 has solidified its place as the left-of-centre, late-summer bash for grown ups looking to behave (kinda) badly."

Everfest

— PRESS —
"These days, with every summer Saturday filled to the brim with entertainment options jostling for attention, festivals need a USP to really stand out. And boy, does Festival No.6 deliver on that front."
