Festival No. 6 is a premium festival set in the eccentric surrounds of Portmeirion, where neo-classical architecture collides with sandy beaches and palm trees.
Bands, DJs, musicians and string ensembles perform 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.
Attendees get the chance to enjoy cinema screenings, street theatre, prose and poetry readings, midnight masquerades, cliff-top comedy stages, secret parties, impromptu interactive moments and even cultural lectures and debates.
The rugged Welsh landscape also offers punters the opportunity to get physical with activities including wild swimming, zorbing, clay pigeon shooting and archery.
What’s on for kids?
Mini festival goers have their own bespoke programme of events in the Children’s Area, Mischief Meadow – a world of play, exploration and expression far beyond and face painters.
There’s a designated family camping area.

No. 6 was pretty good. The site was very navigable, the food stalls were great and it all had a very relaxed feel. The dreaded park & ride bus system worked well.
The biggest disappointment was that there was no designated family camping (contrary to what the website had said). I’m sure there were lots of festival goers who didn’t appreciate my kids getting all over excited at 7.30 am. Just like I didn’t massively enjoy their return to their tents at 4am…
The feel of the fesitval was that it hadn’t sold enough tickets, so they had cut back on certain things – but family camping shouldn’t have cost anything.
If it manages a comeback next year, one for a day ticket I think.
It does look really different, quite magical and high brow even! We’re busy this weekend too so couldn’t go – camping instead in Croyde Bay where hubby and I met far too many years ago… *smiles wistfully*!
Really fancied this one but due to kids being back at school we had to give it a miss, big shame as would love to have seen Richard Hawley again and as you said the rest of the line-up sounds pretty good too 🙁
