Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals, 9Bach and Y Ffug are among a host of Welsh acts announced for Gwynedd's Festival No.6.

The 10th anniversary event will also mark 150 years since Welsh settlers arrived in Patagonia with a day of dedicated performances.

Headliners Grace Jones and Belle and Sebastian will be joined by Catfish and the Bottlemen and Badly Drawn Boy.

It is held in the Italianate village Portmeirion from 3-6 September.

Rhys will perform songs from Set Fire To The Stars, the soundtrack he composed for last year's biopic about Dylan Thomas, starring Elijah Wood.

Other Welsh acts announced include Y Pencadlys, Yws Gwynedd and Ifan Dafydd.
