"After a triumphant inaugural event, rest assured that Festival Number 6 will now be a mainstay in any self-respecting festival reveller’s diary. And it will be so for one very simple reason: no matter how impressive the future line-ups and headliners are, the main draw will always be the setting itself. It’s a wonder it’s taken this long to happen, because The Village in Portmeirion is a tailor-made setting for a weekend of joyous abandon. Themed around the ‘60s cult TV show The Prisoner, the festival ramps up the retro Technicolor stakes and delivers visitors into the Central Piazza to be greeted by a 360 degree panorama of florid Italian architecture, verdant forest and the sweeping Welsh estuary."
