04 August 2014 Music festivals across Wales James Dean Bradfield at Festival No 6, Snowdonia by Festival No 6 Wales is fast becoming the must go place for music festivals. We have a variety of festivals with a wide variety of music to suit any taste. At the Green Man Festival, you can sit in the Welsh wilderness with the Black Mountains as the backdrop. Listening to new music and possibly the next Mercury, Ivor Novello or Brit winner. A laid back vide with no corporate sponsors, no advertising and no VIP areas. If you prefer something with a faster pace, head to Merthyr. Billed as South Wales biggest rock festival. Merthyr Rock returns after a brief hiatus. With headliner Taking Back Sunday and ska outfit Reel Big Fish, playing alongside local boys The Blackout, who have been involved in the festival since its inception. Not weird and wonderful enough for you? Take a trip to Festival No. 6. With iconic artists, new talent and a strong arts and culture presence. Blended together in the fantasy, slightly surreal surroundings of Portmeirion. Enjoy this? Share it with friends Related items UK school summer holidays Those six week holidays are fast approaching.
