A UNIQUE BESPOKE LINE UP
We know festival bills can sometimes be formulaic, so at Festival No.6 we carefully curate a bespoke bill, which combines iconic headliners with the best new talent around. Last year New Order were so inspired by the setting they gave one of their greatest ever performances and were rightly voted Headline Performance of the Year at the UK Festival Awards. walking away with Best Headline Performance at the UK Festival Awards. Last year, James Blake made his debut headline festival performance at No.6 before going on to win the Mercury Music Prize We also think music is at its most magical when experienced in extraordinary surroundings, so we’ve worked hard to ensure that the fantasy village of Portmeirion is not just a picturesque backdrop but comes alive with its extraordinary set of unique live venues. Last year, Daughter’s intimate set in Portmeirion Town Hall with Joe Duddell and the No.6 ensemble was one of the highlights of the weekend. Bands, DJs, musicians and string ensembles will be playing in every available space, from the historic town hall to the Colonnade gardens, to dance tents overlooking the white sandy bay curated by Electric Elephant and alongside the River Dwyryd to the picturesque Estuary Stage curated by Caught By The River and Faber Social. The diverse bill will range from rock’n’roll to house, balearic to folk, seashanties to Welsh male choirs.
