THE THE ANNOUNCED AS FIRST 2018 HEADLINERS…

THE THE ANNOUNCED AS FIRST 2018 HEADLINERS…

We are excited to announce the legendary post-punk outfit The The as the first headliners for Festival No.6 2018. Back after a 15-year hiatus, Festival No.6 is the band’s only confirmed UK date outside of London. The seminal band were one of the most important acts of the new wave era and influenced an entire genre.

This year, Matt Johnson has returned with new material – the Record Store Day single ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’ in collaboration with Johnny Marr, the highly regarded documentary film The Inertia Variations (premiered at Edinburgh’s International Film Festival), and the Radio Cineola: Trilogy vinyl and CD boxset, to be released this Friday 20 October. A week long season of screenings of both The Inertia Variations and Infected – The Movie at The ICA also begins Friday 20 October, followed next year by their sold out London gigs… and then their headline performance at Festival No.6.

“I first visited beautiful Portmeirion as a child in the 1960s and have returned on holiday many times over the years. I’m also still a huge fan of The Prisoner. In recent years I’ve watched with great interest how Festival No.6 has grown into the most vibrant music, arts and culture festival in the UK. We are delighted to be headlining in 2018 and look forward to contributing to a fantastic festival with lots of wonderful people in the most idyllic setting imaginable.” Matt Johnson

place to life in a way no other event could ever achieve. Clough would
give you five stars, and so do we.”
