Broadwick Live, the organiser of Festival No.6, has announced that the festival will take a break after the 2018 event – stating that the event “is not sustainable in its current format”.

The three-day festival, which takes place at Portmeirion from September 6-9, released a statement revealing that the music and arts festival would not be taking place next year despite its successful six-year history.

The statement read: “In six short years the profile of the festival has far outgrown its intimate capacity, we always knew we had something special, but we never quite expected it to capture people’s imagination the way it has.

“Running Festival No.6 hasn’t been without its challenges. Portmeirion is a complex site and we’ve had fun adapting and reinventing the festival every year but unfortunately No.6 is just not sustainable in its current format and so we’ve made the difficult decision to take a breather – 2018 will be the last Festival No.6 for now.

“We want to thank everyone who has been a part of the Festival No.6 journey so far, including all the incredible artists and performers, our brilliant crew who work tirelessly in challenging circumstances, our loyal suppliers, our team of forward-thinking programmers and partners.

“Most importantly, we want to thank everyone who has ever joined us at Festival No.6 over the years. Taking a break is the right decision but not all is lost, we’re already thinking about the future…”
