After a stunning debut last year, Festival No.6 returns to its striking Portmeirion home this September for another weekend of music, magic and more. 

Organisers have this morning announced the first wave of acts for this year's festival, with legendary Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers topping the bill in a festival exclusive. Mercury Prize nominee and purveyor of soulful electronic sounds James Blake also headlines, following the release of sophomore album 'Overgrown' due in April. 

Also confirmed to appear are Everything Everything, returning to the festival after a triumphant appearance last year, Manchester icons I Am Kloot, AlunaGeorge, Laura Mvula, The Staves, Mount Kimbie, Caitlin Rose, Dutch Uncles, Chapel Club and more. 

This year's DJ line-up is looking just as impressive, with Frankie Knuckles, Carl Craig, Andrew Weatherall, Gilles Peterson and Justin Roberston just some of the acts set to get your feet moving over the weekend. 

Alongside the music, the festival also has a strong emphasis on arts and culture - with John Cooper Clark, DBC Pierre and Caitlin Moran just some of the literati so far announced.
