Billed as “a festival unlike any other in a place like no other”,  Festival No.6  is set in the magical village of Portmeirion, in North Wales, UK. The location is a stunning backdrop featuring venues like the historic town hall and Bristol colonnade. You can even stay in a castle or in the village over the three days of music. Headliners feature New Order, Spiritualized and Primal Scream.

To celebrate New Order headlining the first year of the UK’s newest festival, the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir was commissioned by the festival to record their own unique version of “Blue Monday”. The 60 members of the Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir, formed in 1964, recorded their interpretation of the seminal track in the studio, then filmed the video on location in the village for Festival No.6.
