14-16 September 2012

2012 saw the inaugural Festival Number 6 held at the wonderful and surreal Portmeirion village in Wales.

Recognisable as the backdrop of the original TV series of The Prisoner (and the video for Supergrass’ ’95 hit Alright) Portmeirion is a unique coastal village providing a magical setting for this festival not only of music but art and culture as well.

This first year had a steller line up – Primal Scream, New Order, TOY, Tim Burgess, Death in Vegas, Caitlin Moran, Stuart Maconie and more. We sent Hayley Taylor to experience the delights and provide us with a glimpse of the festival with her picture special.

  1. This festival was amazing – great line-up, beautuiful scenery, well thought through. Highlights for me were Cate Le Bon, Death In Vegas and The Early Years. Bring on next year…

  2. What can you say that has`nt already been said! absol top marks to the organisers for pulling off such a memorable magical festival,being fortunate living locally we would`nt have missed it for the world unlike some who thought because it`s on the door step it can`t be up to much ( how wrong were they !),when can we get our tickets for next year?,Oh & on that subject I don`t think Orange ull b doin 2 4 1 next year,Oh! & if anybody remembers a Guy wearing a tails coat covered in flashing LED`s ( made for Millenium New Years Eve in Beddgelert ) it just felt right to give it a airing & will deffo glam it up plus some again next year. A Massive Cheers to the Organisers & every body who played their part,Oh! & just keep those woodland rave dens open a little longer they were wicked!….the woods will never be the same again,I think Sir Clough would have initially been mortified at the thought of his beloved Portmeirion being showcased in such a way but feel sure he will now be dancing & smiling along with the masses again next year,your legacy has been enjoyed in a new dimension by people of all ages…God bless……..
