– A FESTIVAL UNLIKE ANY OTHER , IN A PLACE LIKE NO OTHER –
Festival Number 6 is set in the tiny Welsh village of Portmeirion. This is where the cult 1960s TV show, The Prisoner, was filmed – with Patrick McGoohan taking on the role of Number 6, the shadowy protagonist of the story, which should hopefully give you a clue as to how this event came by its elliptical name. This is a truly breath-taking setting for an event that some in the industry have dubbed ‘The Welsh Latitude’, which takes in all kinds of music and expressive arts to excite and delight its audience. The site is surrounded by the worn down peaks of Snowdonia, and set against the backdrop of an absolutely beautiful bay, characterised by large flat sand breaks.
When it comes to music, the selection is certainly eclectic at Festival Number 6, ranging from the dance-floor set up in the gardens of the slightly Germanic looking castle through to annual performances by the Brythonaid Men’s Choir – it’s all here
We’re delighted to announce we will be returning to Festival No.6 for 2016 back with a late night program of music at The Village Green.
Located between Castel Park and Portmeirion, The Village Green will feature a live stage “The Bandstand”, with the finest folk artists curated by Mercury-nominated Sam Lee and the wonderful The Nest Collective.
