Festival No.6 (6th-9th September ‘18) has today announced legendary post-punk outfit The The as the first headliners on the bill for next year’s festival – the bands only confirmed UK date outside London.

One of the most important acts of the new wave era, the cult band were a beacon of passion and truth in Thatcher’s Britain and influenced an entire genre. After a long hiatus of 15 years Matt Johnson has returned with new material – this year’s Record Store Day single ‘We Can’t Stop What’s Coming’ in collaboration with Johnny Marr – the highly regarded documentary film ‘The Inertia Variations’ that premiered at this year’s Edinburgh’s International Film Festival, the Radio Cineola: Trilogy vinyl and CD box-set.
