Food & Drink
Forget any preconceptions you had about festival food, at No.6 the food and drink offerings are as exciting and diverse as the music and arts and culture. You can experience a bespoke banquet in the wonderful Portmeirion hotel from a Michelin starred chef, dine in the stunning Castell dining room, or explore the many independent festival food stalls, and the Welsh produce market, all chosen with care.
DINNER AT CLOUGH'S
Your table awaits… Our amazing No.6 bespoke dining experience hosts an incredible line-up of Michelin-starred and innovative chefs. Dinner at Clough’s is situated in the auspicious main dining room of Hotel Portmeirion, the most spectacular dining location on site, with stunning views across the estuary of the River Dwyryd. Hotel Portmeirion's wonderful dining room was originally built by Portmeirion’s founder, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, in 1931 as a curvilinear extension to his main hotel, overlooking the estuary. It’s the perfect place to take time out for a little respite from the festival, and enjoy the finest food available at any festival in the country. We'll be announcing this year's chefs very soon.
GLOBAL STREET FOOD VILLAGE
We strive to make sure the food and drink offered at Festival No.6 reflects the stunning setting and general surrealist nature of the festival. We pulled together over 40 of the nation’s finest street food operators, to create a diverse mix of cuisine for a never-ending banquet of first class food to go. To create a true ‘village’ feel that’s in keeping with its surroundings we produce a street of wonderful food to go all housed in their own individual wooden chalets.
WELSH PRODUCE MARKET
Each year we carefully curate an independent food market in the Village Green, for those who want to either pick up a few delicacies to take home, or maybe rustle something up themselves for breakfast or brunch. We handpick the best independent food producers, with specific attention on local and organic producers, to serve up the most exciting artisan food and drink you could expect at a festival.

place to life in a way no other event could ever achieve. Clough would
give you five stars, and so do we.”

"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."

"The most bijou location of any music event I've ever attended."
"Festival No.6 could rival Montreux as the most sophisticated in Europe."
"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."
"Festival No.6 is still the oddest and most magical of the lot."
"The most Instagrammable festival in the UK"
"We feel like we're in the exact place we should be". Wayne, The Flaming Lips

"Small festivals always claim to offer something a bit different, but set in what can only be described as the magical fantasy land of Portmeirion, Festival No. 6 really does."
"Since its inception in 2012, Festival No. 6 has solidified its place as the left-of-centre, late-summer bash for grown ups looking to behave (kinda) badly."
"These days, with every summer Saturday filled to the brim with entertainment options jostling for attention, festivals need a USP to really stand out. And boy, does Festival No.6 deliver on that front."
"Captivating whimsy backed up by substance"
"Festival No6's programme is nothing if not eclectic, encompassing culture, comedy and music"
"Almost every festival claims to be 'unique', but in the case of this North Wales' curiosity it's a fairly solid claim."
