Offbeat music and arts festival in the weird and wonderful Welsh village of Portmeirion, with a star lineup and a stellar setting.
The mysterious name doesn’t give much away, which is pretty appropriate for a festival that’s become a word-of-mouth hidden gem in double-quick time. Held in the surreal, Italianate-style village of Portmeirion in Wales, Number 6 is loaded with as many quirks as its location, with the added benefit of an exciting and eclectic lineup.
In 2014 the Pet Shop Boys headlined, along with Beck, London Grammar, Bonobo and Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, and as ever the unusual stage settings and intriguing pair-ups between different acts add a depth you’ll rarely find anywhere else. Alongside the music, you’ll find a rich cultural programme spanning art, comedy, poetry and beyond. As its fans will tell you – six is the magic number.
Portmeirion has its own dog cemetery, with a network of zig-zagging paths to explore. Though ironically (or perhaps not…) the village has a no-dogs policy.
