“Festival No.6 imbues the village with Clough’s spirit and brings the
place to life in a way no other event could ever achieve. Clough would
give you five stars, and so do we.”

"A festival that’s as unique as it bills itself, a beautifully put-together event in a setting to match."

The Independent

"This is the coolest, most surrealist, funkiest, freakiest, best festival in the world... Can we just come back every year?"


"That was undoubtedly a career highlight."

Pet Shop Boys

"The most bijou location of any music event I've ever attended."

"For six years Festival No 6 has had bills as bizarre and inventive as its location, Portmeirion, best known as the set for 1960s TV series The Prisoner."

The Times

"Festival No.6 is still the oddest and most magical of the lot."
