Designed by architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis in the 1920s, Portmeirion is a tiny village built in Italianate style on the coast of North Wales, UK. In 2012, this magical setting gave birth to Festival No.6 (@festivalnumber6)—an immersive arts and culture festival paying respect to Sir Clough’s vision for development at one with nature.

“The village comes alive over the weekend,” says festival organizer Luke Bainbridge, who strives to reflect the spirit of Portmeirion in the line up. “Buildings like the Central Piazza and Portmeirion Town Hall all become weird and wonderful venues and settings, and the magical estuary of River Dwyryd is also a really popular site to Instagram.”

Impromptu performances are known to happen throughout the weekend to create an experience truly grounded in its surroundings. “Festival No.6 is about so much more than music. It still all revolves around Portmeirion.”
