After a 15 year hiatus, The The have returned with new material, and today they have been confirmed as a Festival No. 6 headliner. This is the first act to be confirmed by the festival for their 2018 event, and The The will be performing exclusively at Festival No. 6 this summer.
The The’s Matt Cooper said: “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.”
Festival founder Gareth Cooper said: “We are very excited to have THE THE at next year’s festival. They are an act that have always been on our list and when we heard Matt had the band back together and was performing live we had to have them. It’s going to be a real festival highlight next year.”#
