The unique festival, which won the NME Award for Best Small Festival this year, takes place in the town of Portmeirion in North West Wales from September 13–15. It takes its name from the 1960s TV series The Prisoner, which was filmed in the town from 1967–1968 Joining Manic Street Preachers and James Blake on the line up will be I Am Kloot, AlunaGeorge, Laura Mvula, Dutch Uncles, Jagwar Ma, Charlie Boyer and The Voyeurs, Clinic and Mount Kimbie. Festival Number 6 will be the only UK festival that Manic Street Preachers will play in 2013.

Speaking about their headline set, Manic Street Preachers say: "Festival No.6 is the only thing that could break our self-enforced two year British gig ban. To be able to play in Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’ iconic village is something of a dream for us. See you in September."
