Franz Ferdinand and Friendly Fires are among the latest wave of acts for eclectic Welsh bash Festival No. 6, joining The The as headliners.

Jessie Ware, Everything Everything, The Charlatans, Django Django, Hot Chip, Ride, Anna Calvi, The Horrors, Nabihah Iqbal, Marika Hackman, Gwenno, Haelos, Fenne Lily, and lots more are also confirmed for the seventh edition of the festival. Last year saw headline performances from Bloc Party, Mogwai, and The Flaming Lips.

As well as the music on offer, there will also be an arts and culture bill (featuring the one-man show of Madness' Suggs no less) and a dizzying array of artists, poets, speakers, and writers. To mark "a centenary of suffrage", Festival No. 6 will also host Stealing Sheep's Suffragette Procession curated by the group.

"We always aim to raise the bar with our programme," says Festival Manager Luke Huxham. "Our mandate is to deliver a diverse but coherent lineup combining stone-cold legends like The The with the cream of emerging talent and this year is no exception. The festival goes from strength to strength and we still have an enormous amount of talent in music, arts, culture, and food still to reveal. The seventh Festival No.6 is going to be truly incredible. We can’t wait!"

Festival No.6 takes place 6-9 September in the idyllic Portmeirion in North Wales. Tickets are on sale now.
