New Music with Sophie Sveinsson 7pm - 9pm
The multi-award winning Festival No 6 is back for its seventh year of celebrating bespoke music, arts and culture.
Taking place in the magical village of Portmeirion, Wales, headliners The The, Friendly Fires and Franz Ferdinand will entertain festival goers across the weekend of 6-9 September.
Indie legends The Charlatans, Gaz Coombes and The Horrors all join the line-up, along with many more upcoming music acts and a huge arts and cultural line-up.
Suggs, the leader singer of legendary band Madness will headline the arts and culture bill, showcasing his brand new one man show 'What A King Cnut – A Life In the Realm of Madness'.
Infamous for innovation, the Manchester Camerata Orchestra will collaborate with renowned No.6 Composer-in-residence Joe Duddell to perform the very best of Northern Soul and Motown classics for an unforgettable set.
Boasting brand new venues and yet-to-be-revealed Michelin starred-chefs, this year’s festival is set to be the most impressive yet.
Acts will perform across the entire site, with venues at the historic town hall, piazza, Bristol Colonnade, the picturesque Estuary stage, the atmospheric woods and the promenade along the River Dwyryd.

Festival manager Luke Huxham said: “The festival goes from strength to strength and we still have an enormous amount of talent in music, arts, culture and food still to reveal. The seventh Festival No.6 is going to be truly incredible. We can’t wait!”
