Festival No 6 2017 Overview
Festival No. 6 is set in the eccentric surrounds of Portmeirion, Wales, 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, sea shanties to Welsh male voice choirs.
Your weekend will be spent in the most stylish festival setting imaginable. The ocean, mountains and forests are their 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 their idyllic festival peninsula.
Portmeirion is a screen star. Her iconic character has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously as The Village in the acclaimed 1960s television series, The Prisoner...
