I love festivals and it’s that time of year when peoples attention turns to what’s on and who’s playing where. This year we’ve spied a newer festival that is ticking many boxes for us – Festival No. 6. Both Papasaurus and I are in agreement – we want to go… Just look…*sigh*
Held mid-September in Potmerion, Wales, this multi-award winning festival boasts not just music but a whole host of arts and culture too, from the likes of John Cooper Clarke to the frankly awesome Vagenda, whom I’ve seen speak before, lovely ladies they are too. Yeah you heard me, multi-award winning: Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards and Best Small Festival in a public poll at the NME Awards.
Music at a festival is important to us, we’re closet musos and a duff line up is always a no-no (hence why we only did the one day at the Isle of Wight festival this year). Festival No. 6 is delivering a great line up, this year, my personal favourites being Primal Scream,Everything Everything, The Manics, I Am Kloot, Tricky, AlunaGeorge and best of all Melt Yourself Down who are just BRILLIANT live . Also looking forward to Slow Club , who we first saw at the Icelandic Airwaves Festival on our honeymoon on 2007, Clinic and Jagwar Ma.
The festival offers a number of packages from ticket and camping to boutique camping to accommodation in the village and how good Portmerion sounds for a festival venue…
“Portmeirion is a unique and magical site, offering nature and eccentricity in equal measures. It perfectly reflects our vision of an intimate boutique music and arts festival, sculpted for those who enjoy life’s finer things. A festival which is a scene but not a herd, which explores and embraces individual expression and offers you the chance to put reality on hold for a few days. Lose yourself in your own fairytale in the iconic setting where ‘The Prisoner’ was filmed.” – Festivalnumber6.com
