With a little under two weeks to go we’re excited to reveal more details about Andrew Weatherall’s Social, presented with The House of St. Barnabas and Festival Number 6.

The day will be based around an ‘interview relay’ which will see some of our foremost writers and musicians matched in a conversational duel.

Journalist Emma Warren will be interviewing Bob Stanley: musician, journalist, film producer and author. Bob will then be sitting down with Green Gartside, frontman of seminal British pop band Scritti Politti. Green in turn will be matching wits with the curator of the event and current artist-in-residence of Faber Social Andrew Weatherall. Finally Andrew will be in conversation with a true musical heavyweight, Irmin Schmidt of CAN.

Weatherall will be DJing throughout the day, culminating in a two hour set to see us out in style.

Michael Smith will also be in conversation with Sophie Parkin of infamous Soho drinking den The Colony Room Club.

Other musical performances throughout the day from Green Gartside in collaboration with Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip). Mike Garry & Joe Duddell join us following their show at Carnegie Hall with New Order and Iggy Pop. Cian Nugent will be performing fresh from a triumphant week at SXSW, and finally Michael Smith and Weatherall bring their collaboration Unreal City.

Needless to say this is going to be a day to remember. Don’t miss out.
