The Wanted to headline Welsh festival

The Wanted have announced plans to headline Ponty's Big Weekend in the summer.

The boyband will be making their debut at the two day Cardiff event on July 23.

They follow in the footsteps of JLS who topped the bill last year. 

'This a massive gig to do,' frontman Max George told Capital's Matt Lissack.

'This year we seem to be headlining a lot,' he added. 'We've just done our own tour and now we've got big gigs like this coming in. It's going to be a wild summer.'

The Wanted have also signed up to appear at events at Newmarket and Chester racecourses and Live At The Leeds Castle over the summer.

They are due to perform at Plymouth Pavilions tomorrow (05.04).

This week's Big Top 40 has just finished. Check back soon to see the latest chart!
