Belle & Sebastian and Grace Jones have been confirmed as the headliners for Festival Number 6 this September.

Along with the two recently announced headliners, Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers are also included on today’s line-up announcement. Festival No. 6 takes places between September 3-6 in Portmeirion, the Welsh town made famous by its use in TV show The Prisoner.

The full list of confirmed live acts for the festival is as follows:

Belle & Sebastian
Grace Jones
Kate Tempest
Young Fathers
Rae Morris
The Bohicas

They join a DJ line-up that already includes DJ Harvey, 2 Bears (Live), Bicep, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Gerd Jansen, Andrew Weatherall, Optimo, Ralph Lawson, Justin Robertson, Maurice Fulton, and Mark E.

Festival director Luke Huxham said: “We’re tremendously excited about this year’s festival. Our first wave of artists and DJ’s is stronger than ever and there’s a lot more to come including our third main stage headline act, another headline DJ and a big second wave of live acts.

“We have a huge amount to announce on the culture, arts and food side of the festival which is an increasingly important part of the No.6 experience. There are also a few surprises up our sleeves – I think it’s safe to say it’s going to be our best festival yet.”

Festival No. 6 was headlined by Pet Shop Boys, Beck and London Grammar in 2014
