Following its inaugural year Festival No.6 has been awarded both Best New Festival and Best Headline Performance from New Order at this years UK Festival Awards.
Set in the stunning location of Portmeirion in Wales, the event saw headline performances from New Order, Primal Scream and Spiritualized. The festival also merged a diverse range of entertainment from poetry recitals, literary talks and comedy stages to midnight masquerades, torch parades and secret parties in the secluded woodlands.
It's been an outstanding year for Festival No.6 founder Gareth Cooper who not only took away these prestigious accolades but also scooped the gong for Best Promoter. Gareth said: "It just goes to show that in these tough times, with a great team behind you and amazing locations like Portmeirion, you can still achieve brilliant results."
Festival No.6 organiser Bradley Thompson added: "We are incredibly proud to have won both of these awards that we were nominated for at the UK Festival Awards and would like to thank those who voted for us and everyone that attended. Together we created something very special and these awards are for you!"
