Manic Street Preachers to headline Festival Number 6 in Portmeirion
Manic Street Preachers are set to break their self-imposed two-year ban on playing British gigs by headlining at Festival Number 6 this summer.
The Welsh trio will play one of the nights at the festival in Portmeirion, North Wales in September.
Manic Street Preachers said: “Festival Number 6 is the only thing that could break our self-enforced two year British gig ban. To be able to play in Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’ iconic village is something of a dream for us.”
The cover of the band’s fifth studio album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours was shot at Portmeirion in 1998.
It will be the Manics' only UK festival appearance this year.
Other acts confirmed for Festival Number 6 2013 include James Blake, Everything Everything, I Am Kloot, AlunaGeorge, Laura Mvula, Mount Kimbie, Caitlin Rose, Chapel Club and Dutch Uncles.
