Every September, the great and the good descend on the picturesque Portmeirion for a weekend of cultural immersion on a huge scale. The surreal village in Northern Wales, comprised of diverse architecture and astonishing views, is home to Festival No.6. Its status as “an intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture” is becoming more and more renowned – it has been recognised by the UK Festival Awards numerous times. For what will be the festival’s fourth year, they have unveiled an exciting first wave of acts.
Festival No.6 has announced Grace Jones and Belle & Sebastian as the first two headliners for 2015. These two headline acts will delight with their own particular brands of pop; both will surely result in spectacles of extraordinary proportions. Critically acclaimed talents such as Young Fathers and Kate Tempest feature, as do the incredible Rae Morris, Stornoway and Shura.
The festival has also began to announce its DJ line-up; DJ Harvey and the UK festival exclusive of The 2 Bears are sure to please the crowds. Bicep, Andrew Weatherall and Ralph Lawson will also be there.
With Portmeirion’s principal festival still to announce the cultural, artistic and culinary delights to be experienced on September 3rd – 6th 2015, make sure you get your tickets before everyone else does.
September’s first weekend is sure to be an unforgettable one for those in attendance.
