Two more acts announced for Llanfest
Renowned for their 2007 smash Heavyweight Champion of the World, Reverend and The Makers will classic songs and hits from their 2015 album Mirrors.
Best known for his weekly appearances on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Cymru C2, Stephens will bring an eclectic mix of inspired tracks and undiscovered gems to Llanfest, setting the tone for the evening line-up.
The day will begin with performances on the outside stages by acts including Roving Crows, Army of Skanks, Ben Roberts, Buddy Holly and the Black Jacks, Captain Zed, Delta Radio, Full Circle, Living Sounds, Mr Blunders, Skeet Williams, Thunderbug, Tom Wilson and Y Gogs.
There will also be plenty of exotic international cuisine on offer from a range of food and drink stalls on the field.
With Llanfest tickets offering all day access to the festivities from 2pm, revellers can choose from either a £65 or £50 ticket, dependent on seating or standing options.
The festival’s music director, Eilir Owen Griffiths, said: “Llanfest 2017 is going to be an unforgettable day and alongside the rest of the week’s line-up, which features acts including Sir Bryn Terfel and Gregory Porter, will put the festival on the global map as a destination for live music.”
Huw Stephens said: “I’m honoured to be a part of a festival that is celebrating its 70th anniversary and as a passionate supporter of new talent. I can’t wait to see what the day has in store.
“It’s fantastic to see such big names headlining a show in Llangollen, especially Manic Street Preachers, who are world class."
There will be live performances from a range of artists from 2pm on the outside stages, with Reverend and The Makers and Huw Stephens launching evening performances in the International Pavilion, before the Manic Street Preachers take to the stage.
