Festival No.6 has expanded once again, with 6Music confirming their involvement.

Set in one of Britain's most unusual towns, Festival No.6 has grabbed our attention with an eclectic, surprising bill. Primal Scream and New Order will headline, but beneath these two iconic acts sit a number of totally new artists.

Now 6Music have confirmed their involvement. The digital station will be broadcasting from the site, recording live sets as they happen and setting up recordings in one of a kind locations.

Gareth Cooper, festival organiser: "We knew Festival No.6 was going to be special when we found the magical Portmeirion as a site. Having BBC 6 Music broadcasting live from the main stage in our first year is simply incredible, and such a perfect fit. It's going to be a fantastic experience for everyone involved."

Alongside this, the organisers of Festival No.6 have unveiled an unusual cover version. To celebrate New Order's upcoming appearance, the event squeezed 60 members of the Brythoniad Male Voice Choir into a studio to record a version of 'Blue Monday' - watch it below.



Clash will be there every step of the way - watch out for a number of special previews ahead of the event, as well as live coverage from the site.

Festival No.6 runs between September 14th - 16th.
