Festival No.6 wins major award

bestnewfest.jpgFestival No. 6, the event that launched this year at the unique location of Portmeirion in Wales, has also proved a hugely popular choice among voters and judges, scoring the title of 'Best New Festival'. Festival No. 6 triumphed further when British music legends New Order, present at this evening's award ceremony, collected the prize for 'Headline Performance Of The Year' and the festival's mastermind Gareth Cooper scooped 'Promoter Of The Year'.

1200 guests at  the event held at London's Roundhouse also applauded the evening's recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, Live Nation's Chief Operating Officer, John Probyn. Probyn collected his accolade in the wake of both an Olympic and record-breaking year, and following a continuing highly-celebrated career in the entertainment industry.

Steve Jenner, Festival Awards co-founder comments: "It is pleasing to see so many first-time category winners breaking through this year and indicative of the dynamic movements in the market at this time. Much more than winning gongs, though, the Festival Awards are about celebrating and uniting the UK festival industry which, in these turbulent times, is more vital than ever."
