Festival Number 6
Ever since the sun decided to make an appearance, the Whistles HQ has been buzzing with festival talk. Though the number of festivals on offer this year is somewhat overwhelming, Festival Number 6 is at the top of our wishlist.
Located in Portmeiron, a fantastical, Italian-style coastal village in North Wales designed by Sir Clough William Ellis, the three day line-up boasts musical acts including James Blake, 90’s rock legends the Manic Street Preachers and Chic featuring Nile Rogers. As well as a long list of new and established musical acts, the festival will also host a wealth of non-musical experiences including beatnik poet John Cooper Clark, woodland trails created by sound designer Ian Thompson and literary discussions by Caitlin Moran.
For those allergic to roughing it, the picturesque site offers luxe accommodation within the village castle as well as luxurious bell tents and tipis. Food facilities have been commissioned with the most discerning of foodies in mind - think welsh farmers market and gourmet street food.
