Winner of Best Small Festival 2018


“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

"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."

The Independent

"Festival No.6 could rival Montreux as the most sophisticated in Europe."

The Guardian

"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."

The Telegraph

"The most Instagrammable festival in the UK"

The Independent

"We feel like we're in the exact place we should be". Wayne, The Flaming Lips

Wayne Coyne, 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."

Marie Claire

"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."

Time Out

"Captivating whimsy backed up by substance"

Suitcase Magazine

"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."
