Franz Ferdinand have announced that they will let fans choose their set list for the inaugural BBC Radio 6 Music Festival.

Fans will be able to vote from a list of 15 singles, album tracks and B-sides which span the band's four-album career. The six songs which receive the most votes will be the first to be played when the band perform at the event on March 1.

The vote is open now on the BBC 6 Music website and will run until Monday (February 10). The results won't be revealed until Franz Ferdinand play the gig itself.

"We've never let the fans choose the setlist before. It wasn't my idea. Could be a total disaster. Could be amazing. Let's find out," frontman Alex Kapranos said in a statement.

Damon Albarn, Haim and The National are among the list of artists joining Franz Ferdinand on the bill for the first ever BBC Radio 6 Music Festival, which will take place between February 28 and March 1 at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.

Wild Beasts, Franz Ferdinand and Jagwar Ma will also perform, as will Luke Sital Singh, Nick Mulvey and Jimi Goodwin. Other confirmed names, meanwhile, include Midlake, Lykke Li, Outfit, Kelis, Kiran Leonard, The Horrors, The Staves and Jake Bugg.

Yesterday (February 3), Alex Kapranos apologised to Pharrell Williams after accusing him of "borrowing" a Franz Ferdinand riff on his new track with Paloma Faith titled 'Can't Rely On You'.
