around the site


Festival No. 6 returns for a 7th 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 by architect 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 from Thursday 6th until Sunday 9th September 2018.

Line-up

Confirmed so far are The The. 

Tickets

Tickets are not yet on sale. They'll go on sale at 10am on Thursday 26 October.

Activities

As well as the music you can pay top-dollar to avoid what your ticket has paid for to go and eat stuff which you could also do without buying a festival ticket.  There's also cinema screenings, street theatre, comedy, prose and poetry readings, long table feasts, comedy, and cultural lectures and debates.

The rugged Welsh landscape will also offer punters the opportunity to get physical with activities including wild swimming, and stand-up paddle-board sessions which are open to individuals, couples, families and groups and will be held on the beach within Portmeirion. 

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.Which is a bit of a git.

Those coming by train should also be aware that the shuttle service from Bangor Train Station incurs a cost 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.
