around the festival site

Festival No. 6 returns for a third year to Portmeirion, Wales the location for the cult 60's TV series The Prisoner, hence the name being a reference to the show.

Portmeirion was constructed between 1925 and 1975 byarchitect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis and the village is a bizarre and elaborate interpretation of a Mediterranean villa.

Bands, DJs, musicians and string ensembles will be performing across the entire site, from the historic town hall to the Colonnade gardens to the picturesque Bay Stage and the promenade along the estuary of the River Dwyryd earlier in this year this time around from Thursday 4th until Sunday 7th September 2014.


Beck, and London Grammar will headline. Also confirmed are Bonobo, Neneh Cherry & RocketNumberNine, Steve Mason, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Temples, Jimi Goodwin, James Holden, Los Campesinos!, John Wizards, Cherry Ghost, Alexis Taylor, The Radiophonic Workshop, East India Youth, The Rails, All We Are, Arthur Beatrice, Childhood, Telegram, and Brythoniad Male Voice Choir.

The DJ line-up is headlined by Julio Bashmore with Andrew Weatherall, Danny Krivit, Michael Mayer, Justin Robertson, Ewan Pearson, Prosumer, Ashley Beedle, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Unabombers, Eagles For Hands, Joe Boyd, Low Life, Aficionado & Special Guests, Amp+Deck, Sophie Lloyd, Camino Del Sol, and Disco Mums also announced.

The third headlining act, and many more are yet to be announced.

Festival goers can also expect pop up-theatre, intimate readings, film screenings, woodland trails, art installations, comedy performances, pop up woodland raves, kids mischief meadow, The Prisoner reconstructions, and more including new venues for 2013.

Information regarding the sale of day tickets will be announced in 2014.

Note: There will be very little entertainment programmed on the Thursday / Thursday Night - This is just an option for those wishing to set up their tents a day earlier. Campsite opening times will be confirmed closer to the time.

There is also the option of paying for your tickets through the deposit / payment scheme. Pay 50% now and pay the remaining 50% of the balance by 1st March 2014. Any balance that remains unpaid after 5pm on 1st March will be deemed as a cancellation. No refunds for any loss of deposit or any amount initially paid will be made.


The festival offers a bespoke line-up of iconic and cutting edge musical acts with a truly unique range of alternative activities. These include cinema screenings, street theatre, comedy, prose and poetry readings, midnight masquerades, cliff-top comedy stages, secret parties, impromptu interactive moments and even participate in cultural lectures and debates.

The rugged Welsh landscape will also offer punters the opportunity to get physical with activities including wild swimming, zorbing, clay pigeon shooting and archery.

Visitors also have the chance to take part in free Power Kiting and stand-up paddle-board sessions which are open to individuals, couples, families and groups and will be held on the beach within Portmeirion. Each session will see groups take part in a one hour lesson on how to fly and control a power kite, like those used by kitesurfers. 

Arts and culture

Arts and culture is an integral part of Festival No.6. with a mixture of spoken word, poetry, comedy and acoustic acts and unique performances planned throughout the site, from street theatre to bespoke installations.

Partners including Faber Social, Caught By The River, Walk The Plank, Heavenly Films, Finders Keepers, Salon London and Don't Tell Stories all help curate a set of unique performances.

No parking rule

The festival site has a no parking rule and so the festival is operating a park and ride to the site for all festival goers including those who have booked boutique camping.

This is being run from the car park which is approximately 4 miles from the site, it's worth bearing this in mind when you're packing as you'll need to transport everything to the festival site on the park and ride.

Those getting a lift there and being dropped off must also catch the shuttle as the drop off point is at the Park & Ride also. Disabled festival goers with blue badges are allocated disabled parking in a separate designated area. If you have not pre-booked a disabled ticket you must use the park and ride. Unfortunately the shuttle buses cannot facilitate wheelchairs, although taxis can be booked from the park and ride.

Those coming by train should also be aware that the shuttle service from Bangor Train Station incurs a cost of £10 each way, and organisers recommend you pre-book. If you do not pre-book and there's no space a taxi to the site costs approximately £70-80 one way.

Alcohol restrictions

Please note there was a personal limit on alcohol brought to the festival last year - this is 1 bottle of spirits, or 1 case of beer, or 2 bottles of wine, and it's expected to be the same this year. Whatever you bring must not be in glass and must be decanted before taking on the park & ride.


Castell Deudraerth will be opening its doors to any guests looking for some luxury accommodation. Alternative options include cosy cottages in the heart of the picturesque village, the stately gatehouse, tower bedrooms, tribal yurt's, tipis and bell tents along with a selection of iconic caravans and movie star Airstream trailers.
