Entrance Policy

We have a number of restrictions for entrance into the festival: Admission is subject to search and management reserve the right to refuse admission. No Glass. No dogs (with the exception of Guide dogs for both visually and hearing impaired). No bikes.

Festival No. 6 encourages people not to leave the festival site. Although seemingly quite apt, we are not purposely trying to imprison anyone. Portmeirion is a beautiful and unique location so why dilute your weekend experience by returning to the "Real World"?

The access roads to Portmeirion cannot cater for a constantly high volume of entrance and exit traffic throughout the weekend. For this reason we have to limit access for the well-being of Portmeirion, and it's local inhabitants and in order for the festival operations and logistics to run smoothly.

Should you have accommodation off the festival site (or you're lucky enough to have secured a Locals' Ticket), you will be able to come and go as you please as long as your wristband stays intact and on your wrist.

Illegal Substances

It is a condition of entry on our licence that you allow yourself and your belongings to be searched by the Police or Event Security. They will carry out random searches when you are entering the festival. Do not attempt to bring in illegal substances as if caught you will be ejected from the event and reported to the Police.
We have trained first aid staff onsite at all times. If you see someone who appears to need assistance, please seek help from a nearby steward.
Further information can be obtained from the 24 hour National Drugs Helpline on 0800 77 66 00 or visit www.talktofrank.com

Tent Capacities

All of the tented stages & venues at Festival No.6 have a maximum capacity that, by law, we cannot exceed. If you want to see a particular artist, please arrive early to the stage to avoid disappointment. Once the venues have reached capacity, in the interests of safety we will be enforcing a 'one in, one out' policy.

Lost Property

Any lost property handed in will be taken to the information point at the festival (see site map). After the festival has finished you can contact us to see if your property was found on: contact@festivalnumber6.com with the subject header Lost Property.
