The Manic Street Preachers have announced they will play a headline slot at this year's Festival No. 6 in Portmeirion, Gwynedd.

The festival - which runs from 13th - 15th September - will see the band's first live show in the UK since 2011.

"The band are currently recording their eleventh studio album - some of which may well be aired for the first time on holy Welsh soil at this one-off 2013 UK festival appearance", the band said on their website.
