Festival No.6

Festival Site, Portmeirion

Passed

This event has been and gone.

An enchanted, unforgettable festival experience in the most incredible festival site you will ever see. An intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture in a mystical, magical village. Festival No.6 takes place over the weekend of September 14-16 in Portmeirion, Wales, the home of cult TV series, The Prisoner.

Festival No. 6 is a brand new premium festival concept set in the eccentric surrounds of Portmeirion, where neo-classical architecture collides with sandy beaches and palm trees. Bands, DJs, musicians and string ensembles will be performing across the entire site, from the historic town hall to the Colonnade gardens to the picturesque Bay Stage and the promenade along the estuary of the River Dwyryd. The diverse bill ranges from rock and roll to Balearic, funk to folk, seashanties to Welsh male voice choirs.

Constructed between 1925 and 1975 by maverick architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis the village of Portmeirion is a wonderfully bizarre and elaborate interpretation of a Mediterranean villa, couched in the waters, mountains and forests of North Wales which make up the festival's perimeter.

Festival goers will get the chance to enjoy cinema screenings, street theatre, prose and poetry readings, midnight masquerades, cliff-top comedy stages, secret parties, impromptu interactive moments and even participate in cultural lectures and debates. The rugged Welsh landscape also offers the opportunity to get physical with activities including wild swimming, zorbing, clay pigeon shooting and archery.
