Festival No.6 – What A Location
This September, the beautiful resort of Portmeirion in Wales will once again play host to the unique sights and sounds of Festival No. 6.
Now in its sixth year, Festival No.6 stands apart from the other venues on the festival circuit; bringing together arts, music, comedy, poetry, food and activities from a vast spectrum of subcultures.
It is also in an architecturally sublime location as Portmeirion was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village. Set in the Snowdonian National Park, you won’t have seen anything like this place in your travels!
Festival No.6 has been added to our festival destinations along with accommodation details.
Sights and the Sounds
This year’s music lineup is not something to be missed. Leading the bill are indie mainstays and born-again electronica outfit Bloc Party, legendary psychedelic collective The Flaming Lips and ethereal post-rock veterans Mogwai.
Elsewhere, the festival sees the return of indie eccentrics Wild Beasts, as well as appearances from BBC Sound of 2017 runner-up Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, sharp-edged rapper Kate Tempest, skinny indie kids The Cribs and MOBO award-winning neo-soul artist Laura Mvula.
And if you’re a fan of the Fab Four, get ready for an extra-special celebration of The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s 50th anniversary, featuring a parade that reproduces the album’s front cover and performances by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Bootleg Beatles.
Portmeirion – The Perfect Festival Destination
The festival’s stunning Portmeirion venue has been the filming location for all sorts of movies and TV shows over the years; most notably serving as The Village in the original 1960s run of classic thriller The Prisoner.
Here, it provides the perfect backdrop for a one-of-a-kind festival, with performances set amongst the town’s central piazza, the Victorian-era Castell Deudraeth and even the banks of the River Dwyryd Estuary. It’s worth visiting the festival for Portmeirion alone!
