New Order, Primal Scream and Spiritualized will headline Festival No. 6 in the Welsh town of Portmeirion
New Order, Primal Scream and Spiritualized will headline Festival No. 6.
The bands are to play in the Welsh village of Portmeirion - famously used as the setting of cult TV series 'The Prisoner' - which takes place from September 14 to 16.
As well as the rock acts, the festival will feature DJ sets from Francois K, Erol Alkan, Mr Scruff, Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston, Horse Meat Disco and Jerry Dammers.
New Order's Stephen Morris said: "It's an amazing location for a festival, we can't believe it hasn't been done before. It's going to be absolutely spectacular, so we're all really looking forward to it."
Portmeirion was constructed between 1925 and 1975 by maverick architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, and is an elaborate interpretation of a series of Mediterranean villas, in North Wales.
Festival organiser Gareth Cooper said: "We've found what we hope will become one of the most outstanding and defining boutique festival sites in the world.
"It's a totally jaw-dropping, mind-blowing place, offering a premium event aimed at a slightly more mature and discerning crowd. We're confident it's going to be one of the most stylish festivals the UK has ever seen."
Tickets go on sale 24th April, and start at £99 for an early bird adult camping ticket. Further line up announcements will follow shortly.
