Our main stage is a Mediterranean-inspired fantas coastal village, and the sea, mountains and forests are out perimeter fences. Portmeirion is much more than a beautiful backdrop however. During the festival the village and the surrounding woods come alive as a unique series of inspiring venues, hosting everything from intimate performances from iconic bands to amazing installations, surreal street theatre and impromptu interactive happenings, all woven together to create a magical environment that you can totally immerse yourself in.
