Six Unmissable Moments of FN617

Six Unmissable Moments of FN617

We’ve selected this month’s six highlights from this year’s bill at No.6. Join us for this September for these unmissable moments…

The Flaming Lips on Stage No.6


The mighty Flaming Lips are one of the most incredible festival headliners, and always go above and beyond to provide a psychedelic live show like no other. Following critical acclaim for their 14th studio album, Oczy Mlody, we’re delighted to welcome them to No.6 for the first time, headlining the main stage on Sunday evening.

Sgt. Peppers and The Summer of Love

We’re hugely excited to welcome The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and The Bootleg Beatles to No.6 for the first time for a very special UK festival exclusive. They will be taking over the main stage on Sunday to present a very special 50th anniversary celebration of Sgt. Pepper’s and the Summer of Love, including performing the iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in its entirety. Having been some days in preparation, a splendid time is guaranteed for all, and this promises to be one of the highlights of No.6 and indeed the whole festival season.

Rag’N’Bone man                             

We are thrilled to welcome the incredible neo-soul singer songwriter Rag’n’Bone Man, after his absolutely sensational year, including a No.1 album which is the fastest-selling male solo debut album this decade, and a Brit Award for Critic’s Choice. He’ll be playing the main stage on Sunday. Be seeing you Rag‘n’Bone Man.

The No.6 Academy in association with Guardian Masterclasses

The introduction of the No.6 Academy was a huge success last year, and this year it runs in association with Guardian Masterclasses, who will be giving a taster session of the hugely popular Masterclasses each day. This year, the No.6 Academy will be overtaking the Dome Art Gallery in the middle of Portmeirion village.

The Return of the Heliosphere

We’re delighted that Dream Engine International are returning with the Heliosphere for our anniversary year. The Heliosphere was one of the highlights of the inaugural year, soaring above the audience as New Order closed the festival on Sunday evening. A truly unique aerial acrobatic performance that will ensure there is magic in the air at No.6.

Adam Buxton BUG David Bowie special

The brilliant Adam Buxton will be joining No.6 for the first time, to present a very special BUG David Bowie special. BUG began in April 2007 as a series of bi-monthly shows at BFI Southbank – the home of British cinema. These celebrations of global creativity in music video have since become a phenomenon, and the BUG Bowie special is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy some key moments from his career on the big screen. Be Seeing Bowie…

“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.”

Robin Llywelyn

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

The Independent

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

BECK

— MUSICIAN —
"That was undoubtedly a career highlight."

Pet Shop Boys

The Independent

The Guardian

— PRESS —
"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

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

The Telegraph

— PRESS —
"The most Instagrammable festival in the UK"

The Independent

Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips

— MUSICIAN —
"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."

Marie Claire

— PRESS —
"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."

Everfest

— PRESS —
"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."

Time Out

— PRESS —
"Captivating whimsy backed up by substance"

Suitcase Magazine

— PRESS —
"Festival No6's programme is nothing if not eclectic, encompassing culture, comedy and music"

Grazia

— PRESS —
"Almost every festival claims to be 'unique', but in the case of this North Wales' curiosity it's a fairly solid claim."
