Festival No.6 has announced its much-loved Lost in the Woods stage which will feature Badly Drawn Boy, Dutch Uncles and Jane Weaver.

The trio will play the Portmeirion-based festival on September 3-6 and join headliners Belle & SebastianGrace Jones and Metronomy, plus the likes of James BayBritish Sea Power and more.

Helping him celebrate are John Shuttleworth, The Wedding Present performing a stripped down set of The Walk, Songs for Walter and former ACR bassist & vocalist Jez Kerr.

Badly Drawn Boy said: “It’ll be my third time at Festival No.6 and 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.”
