Festival Number 6: This Year's Top Festival!

Festival Number 6 in Portmeirion
Festival Number 6 is a bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture. If you relish fantastic atmosphere, great company and a line-up of must-see artists of many genres then this is the festival for you. 

Accommodation is available on site at some of the local hotels, however if you wish to break away from the event once the evenings draw to a close, then there are some great caravan sites in North Wales you can stay at.

Set within the idyllic Italian-style village of Portmeirion, the event boasts some of the beautiful sceneries you will find in North Wales. Breathtaking views coupled with the various venue locations filled with artists, great food, crafts and much more throughout the festival, creates a four-day attraction you’ll never forget.

The music side of the event presents a unique line up of acts including, but most certainly not exclusive to, James Morrison, Grace Jones, Mark Ronson, Rae Morris and Thud Crackle Pop to name a few. All live acts and DJs will perform at a number of venues which include Castell Park; a stunning location with a view over the picturesque River Dwyryd, and The Woodlands; 70 acres of exotic woodlands that surround Portmeirion.

During the four-day event you can break away from the hub of all the music and explore the arts and culture side of Festival Number 6. There will be a large number of talks and discussions, theatre, spectacles and installations, comedy and cinema shows to enjoy. There will be talks and discussions by Steve Coogan and a special screening of ‘Amy’ – a film about Amy Winehouse followed with an exclusive Q&A with BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia and multi Grammy and Brit Award-winning producer Mark Ronson.

Lastly, this is sure to be a long weekend of indulgence. The White Horses Promenade will be transformed into a unique restaurant, which will host a range of Michelin star chefs for a series of long table banquets. If sit down meals are not on your agenda for the weekend, there will be the Welsh Produce Market and Street Food, providing guests with delicious cuisine on to go.
