My Bloody Valentine to headline Festival No. 6

The band will join Manic Street Preachers and Chic at the Welsh bash

My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields onstage at Bestival at the weekend. Opening with 'I Only Said', the legendary band also played ‘Slow’, ‘Glider’, and ‘Cigarette In My Bed’, bringing the first day of the rain-marred, three-day event to a satisfying close.
My Bloody Valentine are set to headline Festival No. 6.

The show will be the band's only England and Wales festival date of the summer, and will see them performing in Portmeirion alongside the previously announced likes of Manic Street Preachers, Chic, Everything Everything, AlunaGeorge, Neon Neon, Tricky and James Blake.

Other newly announced events for the festival include a Q&A with Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, who will be in conversation with BBC 6 Music's Stuart Maconie. For more information, visit
