The the UK’s most unique experience. A multi award-winning music, arts and culture festival, located in the magical coastal home of Portmeirion, with an eclectic mix of iconic and the best new artists. Their main stage – a Mediterranean-inspired, Grade II-listed fantasy village, surrounded by estuary, mountains and woodlands. During the festival, the village and surrounding woodlands came alive as a unique series of surreal and inspiring venues.
A message from Festival No.6 (9.07.2018):
When we started Festival No.6 we had one aim – to create a completely new type of festival in a location unlike any other, catering for a different type of audience. Over the past six years, we’ve done everything we can to bring you an unrivalled festival experience in a truly unique setting, driven by a desire to do things differently.
No.6 has always been more than just a music and arts festival. It’s the ultimate escape from reality, a place you can see your favourite artists in a breathtaking setting, or discover new acts you’ll want to see again and again, a place where performers are as inspired as the audience – a platform to present new work and collaborations in unique and intimate venues, a place like no other where like-minded individuals gather and embrace new ideas, inspired to take risks and push boundaries.
In six short years the profile of the festival has far outgrown its intimate capacity, picking up numerous awards, gaining international recognition and becoming one of the world’s most unique festivals. We always knew we had something special but we never quite expected it to capture people’s imagination the way it has.
Running Festival No.6 hasn’t been without its challenges. Portmeirion is a complex site and we’ve had fun adapting and reinventing the festival every year but unfortunately No.6 is just not sustainable in its current format and so we’ve made the difficult decision to take a breather – 2018 will be the last Festival No.6 for now. We will of course be throwing an almighty party this year and will make sure it’s the most outstanding No.6 to date!
