Music at Festival Number 6

It’s three days of music in the world famous location of Porthmerion, an exquisite lovingly constructed Italian style tourist village. There’s art displays, bands of varying sizes, talks, ballet, parades and much more.

Kicking off on August 31 and running until the 4th, it’s going to be an insane weekend.

Surprise special guests the Kaiser Chiefs will be storming the festival, bringing their distinct brand of indie rock, and hits such as Oh My God, Ruby and Never Miss a Beat are sure to resonate with the crowd with singalong anthems.

Noel Gallagher, king of Britpop will be serenading Festival Number 6 with his band The High Flying Birds. Noel will likely be playing tunes from his new album, Chasing Yesterday, his self-titled debut as well as maybe a couple of Oasis classics (if we’re lucky).

Bastille as one of the hottest bands of today, with their single Pompeii smashing the charts with its singalong, vibe, mixed with electronic instruments and guitar.

Wale’s own Super Furry Animals are well hyped up to perform, their psychedelia mixed with punchy rock chords and Welsh weirdness is the perfect fit for Fest No 6.

If you’re not one for big headlining rock bands, don’t worry about it, Electronic arts collective Gottwood will be hosting ‘The Grove’, you’ll be sure to find top-tier house and techno, here and the case is similar over at Audio Farm’s barn.

There’s also low-key folk stages with bales of hay to sit on while you enjoy some organic folk music.

If you want even lower key, the Gatehouse will be crammed with speakers on all ranges of subjects, from politics to music.

The main plaza is also a scream every night, with house band The Gypsys putting on a heck of a show full to the brim of reworks of your favourite tracks from all genres.

It’s tempting to use this event as an excuse to stay in North Wales for a more extended period of time. Check out North Wales Hotels to stay in a beautiful part of the world if only for a bit longer.
