I’m really not a festival sort of a person, unless it is Monsters Of Rock (Metallica! Motley Crue! Queensryche! Black Crowes! ON THE SAME DAY) or Download (KISS! Ace Frehley!) but if there is one that I would like to visit it is Festival No.6, named after The Prisoner and taking place in Portmeirion where the classic show was filmed.
This year, there is a nice mix of Kendallrock, with The Flaming Lips at the top of the bill and slots for The Cribs, Charlotte Church and a celebration of Sgt Pepper.
Look down the list and you will find some treats in the DJ section – Jarvis Cocker! Kevin Rowland! AND perhaps best of them all you get to see the greatest glam DJ of them all, Monsieur Simon Price presenting PURPLE STARDUST, a stomping mix of Bowie and Prince, which is essentially a time to glue yourself to the dancefloor and dance all night, right?
Festival No.6 takes place September 7/8/9/10.
