UK Festival Awards 2015

Portmeirion's annual music event has been nominated in three different categories at the national festival honours

This September we were proud to welcome Festival No.6 to the village for another weekend ofFN6 good food, great music and even better company. With record-breaking numbers of festival-goers attending, this year's event was by far the biggest and best yet to grace the shores of our unique peninsula. 


The UK Festival Awards has celebrated the best in British festivals for the last 10 years, and this year Festival No.6 is in line to receive recognition for its unique cultural offering.


Festival No.6 has been nominated for three awards, including Best Small Festival, Best Family Festival and Best Headline Performance from Grace Jones.


Grace Jones' Sunday night finale was certainly worthy of such an honour; the 67-year-old ex-supermodel stormed the stage in typically dramatic fashion while covered in white body paint.   


Other notable performances included a characteristically sharp and witty spoken routine from actor and comedian Steve Coogan, an energetic delivery of soul and funk in the rum tent from Craig Charles and a spine-tingling recital from the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir.


With Michelin star banquets, spectacular artistic performances and secret woodland gigs, Festival No.6 is so much more than just a three-day music event. We are delighted to be such a big part of what makes the festival so unique, and we will certainly be placing a vote in all three categories.

The winners will be announced on November 26 at a special ceremony taking place at The Roundhouse in London.
