The line from the show ‘Be Seeing You’ was on the lips of many visitors this weekend. Despite the festivals international recognition the organisers have said they need time to rethink its future. For all the demand for the festival, its allure, and charm, the festival has out grown is surroundings however there is speculation Festival No. 6 could return in 2020 in a different format.
This year Festival No. 6 attracted more than 10,000 visitors to Portmeirion with rockers Franz Ferdinand being the final act to take to the stage on Sunday evening giving the festival the send off it deserved. The heavy rain which was forecast for the weekend turned up, but it didn’t spoil the atmosphere as thousands of families roamed the site and it’s many unique stages and attractions.
