The The The are set to headline the 7th edition of Festival No. 6, which takes place at that luvvly Portmeirion in Wales next September but where it's still a band playing on a stage in a field.
It says here it's "the bands only confirmed UK date outside London", but that's probably how things stand right now, and by next September Matt and pals will have played everywhere on earth without the inconvenience of a remote location in Wales and those at No 6 will be the last to see them. Or something. Cos loose statements like that are often used to suggest something which isn't what'll be, with that being more of a thing in some places than other places.
Still, you can't buy tickets yet anyway.
The band - better known as Matt - says "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". So there you go. A band says they're excited, wooowooo!
