Taking place on the weekend of September 1st - 4th, Festival No. 6 is a 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 Festival Number 6 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.

The sleepy Welsh fantasyland, famous for being the set of cult 60s TV show The Prisoner, has never before hosted an event of such breadth and ambition as Festival No 6. 


Your weekend will be spent in the most stylish festival setting imaginable. The ocean, mountains and forests are our perimeter fences and the main stage is a Mediterranean inspired coastal village. But Portmeirion is more than just a beautiful backdrop… Watch the village come alive with spontaneous performances, installations, surreal street theatre and impromptu interactive happenings. Festival No.6 is an experience you can completely immerse yourself in and become a part of. From the regency of the Town Hall, to the vibrant Colonnade Gardens, The Stone Boat, The Lighthouse, the estuary of the River Dwyryd, Tangle Woods and The Chinese Lake… Come and explore our idyllic festival peninsula.


The musical bill at Festival No.6 is a unique mix of iconic legends, the freshest up and coming bands and a stunning DJ line-up, plus a few very special guests. In our inaugural year, New Order were so inspired by the location they put on an incredible show, coming on stage in Prisoner outfits and walking away with Best Headline Performance at the UK Festival Awards. Last year, James Blake made his debut headline festival performance at No.6 before going on to win the Mercury Music Prize and Manic Street Preachers announced they were coming back early from their two-year break to play No.6, while Daughter’s intimate set in Portmeirion Town Hall with Joe Duddell and the No.6 ensemble was one of the highlights of the weekend.
