Festival No.6 is based in the surreal and wonderfully scenic Portmeirion. Hosting a wonderful array of music acts from Belle & Sebastian to the reformed Black Grape. Shaun Ryder and his gang are back together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their number one albumn ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah.’ As Paul “Kermit” Leveridge says “Festival No.6 is unique. It’s a festival that has something for everybody, whether you wanna party hard or you’re a culture vulture. They always have great acts and it’s a beautiful backdrop. This will be the third year I’ve been to No.6 and I’m really looking forward to tearing it up with Black Grape.”

As well as music, there is comedy from Katherine Ryan and Ardal O’Hanlon amongst others. Talks from a real mixture of people, Irvine Welsh, Dom Joly and Eideth Bowman to name a few. In addition to this there is theatre, spectacles and art installations.
More than enough to keep you entertained… Oh and don’t forget the beautiful views.
