The award-winning Festival No. 6 is proud to announce My Bloody Valentine. They join an already stunning bill which includes Manic Street Preachers, Chic, James Blake and many more. The performance will be their only England and Wales festival date this year.
Festival No.6 is a pioneering festival concept bringing together music, arts and culture in the most incredible festival location you will ever see. Festival No.6 takes place over the weekend of 13-15 September 2013 in the eccentric surrounds of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner.
After a 22 year hiatus from recording, My Bloody Valentine returned in 2013 with their critically acclaimed record ‘M B V’, a wonderfully dense exercise in lo-fi indie. The Dublin rockers will join fellow headliners Manic Street Preachers and Chic Ft. Nile Rodgers at the top of the bill. London duo Public Service Broadcasting have also been announced.
Legendary indie label Moshi Moshi Records will be celebrating their 15th birthday at the festival and will host the 'Lost in the Woods’ stage. They will showcase a range of cutting edge new acts and more established talent, including folk-rock duo Slow Club (two piece set), Leicestershire rockers The Wave Pictures, hypnotic pop songrtress Mariam the Believer, indie three-piece Teleman as well as Totem and Boxed in.
Elbow front man Guy Garvey will be returning to Festival No.6 this year to join BBC 6 Music’s Stuart Maconie ‘In Conversation’. After the huge success and turn out for last year’s performance, they have been relocated from the beautiful Town Hall to the higher capacity Piazza.
