Ska legends The Specials are heading to New Zealand to headline next year's Womad festival in New Plymouth.

The multi-racial seven-piece band is the first act to be named for the three-day event next March.

The Specials were formed in Coventry four decades ago and had a run of seven UK Top 10 singles, including Too Much Too Young and Ghost Town.

Organisers say the full festival line-up will be released on October 18.
