Iconic afrobeat drummer Tony Allen and Detroit techno pioneer Jeff Mills are to perform a collaborative set at Safe As Milk festival this April, heading up a strong line-up spanning the breadth of leftfield music.

Having played together at a jazz club in Paris towards the end of 2016, Allen and Mills will be returning to the stage at the festival's inaugural event at Pontins' Prestatyn resort in North Wales, where other headliners will include former Suicide instrumentalist Martin Rev, San Francisco avant-garde collective The Residents, veteran folk singer Shirley Collins, and an exclusive UK show from seminal Texan band Butthole Surfers.

Other highlights from the eclectic three-day festival include Werkdiscs label head Actress, Drexciya founder Gerald Donald's Dopplereffekt project, ambient drone artist Grouper and New York underground hip-hop star Princess Nokia.

Safe As Milk takes place at Pontins, Prestatyn, across April 21st - 23rd. For tickets and the full line-up, head to the festival's website.
