When we conceived Festival No.6, we knew we needed to find partners who could share our vision, and make it happen. The following partners each excel in their own chosen field and have helped us to realise our dream by supplying their unique expertise and magic.
At this year’s festival, visitors will get the chance to take part in free Power Kiting and stand-up paddle-board sessions, free of charge. Volvo cars will also be seen around the festival, acting as VIP transport for the production team and artists, as well as helping transporting visitors from the accommodation site to the main festival.

THE KRAKEN RUM
It’s happened. The Kraken has burst from the realm of myth into the living world—and into the idyllic Welsh village of Portmeirion.
The Kraken Rum Tent, now its third year at Festival Number 6, will be hosting a legendary line-up over the weekend. Friday sees Norman Jay (MBE) bringing the Good Times, with his famous mighty soul, funk and disco. Saturday night goes Back To Basics with Dave Beer and Bez and Sunday closes with the prodigious Don Letts, returning to Festival Number 6 after an incredible show in 2012.
The all-natural, South African cider is dry and distinctly refreshing and this is the sort of thinking they will be bringing with them to Portmeirion and Festival No.6. Their ‘Laughter Lounge’ will provide a unique and relaxing setting to enjoy Savanna cider and their ‘dry’ approach to comedy. If the subliminal messaging hasn’t sunk in yet, consider that Savanna is best served cold with a slice of lemon in the neck.
HENDRICK’S is a deliciously super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Only HENDRICK’S is made with infusions of Cucumber and Rose petals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma. Hendrick's Carnival of Knowledge – a unique travelling parlour of enlightenment – will travel to Festival No.6 for three days of intellectual sustenance and libatory stimulation.
Since its creation in 1772, Veuve Clicquot has played an instrumental role in establishing and evolving the Champagne industry. Located in Reims, France, the Veuve Clicquot Vineyard is one of the foremost in the Champagne region, both in size and quality. As Champagne of the Season, Veuve Clicquot toasts the top social gatherings throughout the world. From the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup at Cowdray Park to Goodwood Revival to Festival No. 6, Veuve Clicquot is the perfect complement to the most exclusive and must-attend events of the year’s social calendar.
Estrella Damm is an authentic imported, award-winning premium pale Spanish lager known internationally as the ‘Beer of Barcelona’. Estrella is stylish, vibrant and passionate, the beer for those who want to enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean and the perfect complement to any dish but of course especially Tapas.
Fever Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water launched in the UK in early 2005, the brand name chosen due to 'Fever Tree' being the colloquial name for the Cinchona Tree in which quinine, a key ingredient for tonic, is found. The highly carbonates tonic, consisting of small 'champagne' bubbles for a smoother taste, was packed in 200ml single serve glass bottles, the perfect size for a double measure gin & tonic.
Dr Martens will create a pop-up space in the village and will also play host to their bespoke service where you can design your own pair of premium boots or shoes in leathers like Ostrich and Cordovan. An expert in shoe shining and leather care will be on hand to keep your festival footwear in top condition free of charge and there will be customization sessions for the younger creatives among us.
Hej hej, Oatly are super excited to be bringing their amazing Swedish Oat drink to Festival No.6 - it's like milk, but made for humans! They'll be there with their Oatly Van tempting you with a range of fabulous goodies. And keep a look out for their Oatly non-milk milkmen, who will be stopping by some of the tents & campervans, delivering 'Wow No Cow' breakfast bags to help give your festival day overall niceness. Tack!
