Festival Overview

Festival No 6 is a festival like no other, in the most stunning festival setting in the world.

Arriving in Portmeirion for the first time it’s easy to feel overwhelmed as it is surrounded by sub-tropical vegetation and surreal Mediterranean architecture, there is a distinct sense of being somewhere serene, spiritual and very, very special.

Portmeirion is a unique and magical site, which made it the perfection location for our vision of an intimate boutique music and arts festival. The festival organizers felt like the festival circuit had become a little stale, and wanted to create a more bespoke offering, carefully curated for those who are looking for a more refined weekend.

A festival which is a scene but not a herd, which inspires the artists as much as the audience, giving them the opportunity to present new work in unique intimate venues, and allowing everyone the chance to put reality on hold for a few days. Last year’s headliner Beck was so blown away by everything he experienced he told the crowd, “This is the coolest, most surrealist, funkiest, freakiest, best festival in the world…”

No.6 is a place where you can lose yourself in your own fairytale. You can sleep in a castle, a cottage, a boutique tipi or your own tent. You can watch a band in the lush colourful gardens, catch a comedian in the Gatehouse, a string ensemble in the historical Town Hall, stroll down to the estuary to catch some sea shanties, before letting loose to your favourite DJ in the late night Studio No.6. Spend the weekend discovering an award-winning eclectic mix of screenings, readings, performance art, installations, intimate talks and conversations.

Take a few hours out by chilling in our luxury spa or strolling along the sandy shore, or through the 70 acres of exotic woods that surround Portmeirion.

Festival No.6 has been curated and delivered by a collaborative team determined to deliver the UK’s most unique festival experience. The festival is named after No.6, Patrick McGoohan’s character in the classic 1960s TV series The Prisoner, which was filmed in Portmeirion. In The Prisoner, No.6 is always trying to escape ’The Village’. Rest assured, you will never want to leave.
