Ex-Pulp guitarist to play Portmeirion's Festival No.6


Emma Mackintosh

THE UK’s most unique boutique luxury festival, Festival No. 6 held in Portmeirion, has revealed its next wave of acts including Death in Vegas, who will be joining headliners New Order, Primal Scream and Spiritualized.

Alongside them will also be Field Music, Everything Everything, Beth Jeans Houghton, Alt-J, Cate le Bon and Jessie Ware.

The festival has announced a delightfully eccentric and eclectic arts and culture programme for the aptly named Estuary Stage, featuring the likes of British Sea Power, King Creosote and T.O.Y.

Festival No. 6 is a brand new premium festival concept set in the eccentric surrounds of Portmeirion, where neo-classical architecture collides with sandy beaches and palm trees.

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. The diverse bill ranges from dance to Balearic, funk to folk, seashanties to Welsh male voice choirs. From specially curated stages and dance tents by Electric Elephant and Electric Chair to literary talks by Faber Social, Festival No. 6 has something for everyone.

Constructed between 1925 and 1975 by maverick architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion is a wonderfully bizarre and elaborate interpretation of a Mediterranean villa, couched in the waters, mountains and forests of North Wales which make up the festival’s perimeter.

Attendees will get the chance to enjoy cinema screenings, street theatre, prose and poetry readings, midnight masquerades, cliff-top comedy stages, secret parties, impromptu interactive moments and even participate in cultural lectures and debates.
