Music, art, theatre, wellbeing and more in the beautiful Welsh town of Portmeirion

Festival Number 6 is a diverse, eclectic and inclusive music festival in the UK town of Portmeirion, showcasing a broad lineup across some of the coastal village's most intimate and unique spaces.

The festival's programme isn't just about music, however, also delving into literature readings, talks, poetry, comedy, theatre, wellbeing and a host of other activities, such as woodland runs, paddle boarding and hot-tub relaxation. 

But when it comes to the music, expect anything from rock and indie to hip-hop and electronic, with 2018's festival seeing post-punk legends The The lead a lineup that also includes Everything Everything, The Horrors, Franz Ferdinand and Django Django.

Set in the beautiful Welsh coastal village of Portmeirion, famous for its Italian style architecture, Festival Number 6 takes its name from the main character of the cult TV show The Prisoner, which was filmed in the village in the 1960s.
