*COMPETITION NOW CLOSED*
Ello TMB readers! We’ve got together with the team behind Festival No.6 in order to be able to give away a pair of tickets to this year’s event (details on how are at the bottom of this post).
Festival No.6 – Portmeirion’s award winning music, arts and culture festival.
A festival unlike any other, in a place like no other, Festival No.6 is an intimate, bespoke banquet of music, arts and culture, taking place over the weekend of the 7-10 September in the magical village of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner.
The carefully curated and eclectic live line-up includes The Flaming Lips, Mogwai, Bloc Party, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Bootleg Beatles, The Cinematic Orchestra, Wild Beasts, Rag’n’Bone Man, Laura Mvula, Kate Tempest, The Cribs and Jagwar Ma. Also on the bill for 2017 includes DJ sets from Goldie, Hercules and Love Affair, Joy Orbison, Benji B, Joe Goddard Live, Mr Scruff, Horse Meat Disco, Justin Robertson, Gerd Janson as well as an arts and culture programme that includes The Brythoniaid Welsh Male Voice Choir, Maxine Peake, Steve Davis, Coco Khan, Vera Chok, Ian Martin plus many more.
Acts will perform across the entire site, by the whimsical Italianate architecture of the village, the historic town hall, piazza, Bristol Colonnade, the picturesque Estuary stage, the atmospheric woods and the promenade along the River Dwyryd.
Constructed between 1925 and 1975 by maverick architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion is a wonderfully bizarre and elaborate interpretation of a Mediterranean villa, nestled in the stunning mountains and forests of North Wales overlooking the expansive estuarial waters of the Irish Sea.
Competition closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 13th August.
