The multi-award winning Festival No.6 features an extensive line-up, headed by the iconic Pet Shop Boys as well as Beck, Laurent Garnier, Norwegian disco king Todd Terje and London Grammar.

Pet Shop Boys are one of Britain’s most commercially and critically acclaimed music acts ever, having sold over 50 million records, including eight platinum, two gold and four silver albums in the UK alone. They have always been an innovative, groundbreaking live act, and their last album Electric, produced by Stuart Price, was a huge return to form.

Festival No.6 Director Bradley Thompson said, “We are hugely excited to have such a truly iconic act as the Pet Shop Boys playing No.6 this year. They’re one of Britain’s biggest ever bands, but remain a brilliant, groundbreaking live act, and their headline slot is going to be incredible. Together with other additions like Laurent Garnier and Todd Terje, this is without doubt our strongest line-up to date, and cements No.6’s position as the ultimate closing party to the festival season.”

Also on the line-up: Greg Wilson (who taught Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim) how to scratch) alongside Norman Jay MBE, Jon HopkinsPaul Heaton (Beautiful South) and Jacqui Abbott, The Undertones, Tom Hickox, Tom Vek, Spector, Toy, Vaults, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Jimi Goodwin, The Acid, Peter Hook & The Light, Radiophonic Workshop and Denai Moore.

Festival No.6 still has more announcements to make in the coming weeks, including a much bigger food line-up, including appearances from Michelin starred chefs and top food writers like Observer Food Monthly and The One Show’s Jay Rayner.

The acts will perform across the entire site, from the historic town hall to the Colonnade gardens, to the picturesque Estuary Stage and the promenade along the river, against a back drop of neo-classical architecture, sandy beaches and palm trees.
