A UNIQUE BESPOKE LINE UP

At Festival No.6, our aim is to carefully curate a bespoke bill that combines iconic headliners with the best new talent and a stunning DJ line-up. Last year we won Line Up of the Year at the UK Festival Awards as well as Best Festival (LMBA) and Most Unique Festival Site (AIF) which we are extremely proud of.

We are delighted to announce our first wave of live acts and DJs including two of our headliners, the iconic Grace Jones and wonderful Belle and Sebastian, plus Kate Tempest, DJ Harvey, The 2 Bears (UK festival exclusive), King Creosote, Ghostpoet, Feel my Bicep, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Andrew Weatherall, Optimo (Espacio) and more.

Bands, DJs, musicians and string ensembles will be playing in every available space, from the historic town hall to the Castell gardens, from dance tents overlooking the white sandy bay 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. We’ll be announcing many more acts, including further headliners, over the coming weeks.

We are delighted to welcome the mighty Grace Jones to Festival No.6 - a truly iconic singer, songwriter, model, actor and all round enigma. Her live sets are duly renowned as nothing short of...
