Luke Huxham, the festival manager for No. 6, commented on the announcement:
“We always aim to raise the bar with our programme. Our mandate is to deliver a diverse but coherent line-up combining stone-cold legends like The The with the cream of emerging talent and this year is no exception.
“The festival goes from strength to strength and we still have an enormous amount of talent in music, arts, culture and food still to reveal. The seventh Festival No.6 is going to be truly incredible. We can’t wait!”
Edith Bowman will talk to Irvine Welsh about music and films, with screenings including Oxide Ghosts - The Brass Eye Tapes, and classical French film La Haine, with a live soundtrack performed by Asian Dub Foundation.
