Festival No6 bags 'Best small festival' at NME awards

Following the runaway success of its inaugural year, Festival No.6 has scooped the award for ‘Best Small Festival’ at this year’s NME Awards.


The accolade is voted for by members of the public, and recognises the best festival in the UK with a capacity beneath 50,000.


Set in the astonishingly quirky, beautiful and unique location of Portmeirion, North Wales, the event saw memorable headline performances from New Order, Primal Scream and Spiritualized.


The festival also merged a diverse range of entertainment and activities from poetry recitals, literary talks and comedy stages to midnight masquerades, torch parades and secret parties in the secluded woodlands.


Festival No.6 director Bradley Thompson said: “We’re delighted to have won Best Small Festival at the NME Awards last night. We were confident we had something special at Festival No.6 and Portmeirion, but we have really been blown away by the response and can’t wait for this year’s festival. Huge thanks to everyone who voted.”


It’s been an outstanding year for Festival No.6 which has already been declared Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards. In addition, festival co-founder Gareth Cooper secured the gong for Best Promoter at the same event.


Guests in 2013 can look forward to another year of outstanding musical acts, ethereal scenery, breathtaking architecture and enchanting distractions at a UK festival location like no other!
