When musicians, artists and fertile imaginations are given the run of a model Welsh seaside village, you get the surrealism of Festival Number 6.

Late Night Pavilion
This area, consisting of two dance tents, parties till three in the morning if you're in need of an after-party.
The Central Piazza
We can't overstate how beautiful this area is: a main stage framed by classical architecture set against the green Celtic coast of Wales. Stunning.
The Estuary Stage
Overlooking a bend of the River Dwyryd, the Estuary Stage is the best example of Festival No. 6, merging the beauty of the Welsh countryside with a venue space.
