Filled with elec­tron­ica-in­fused, re­lent­lessly build­ing in­stru­men­tals, am­bi­ent lulls, crash­ing gui­tars and even the odd lyric, it feels like a sound­track to your very own epic.

At Fes­ti­val No6 in Port­meirion, Wales, the main stage is the vil­lage it­self: a Grade II-listed fan­tasy town, sur­rounded by seas, moun­tains and wood­lands. You’ll find Jarvis Cocker DJing in the gar­dens, Sgt Pepper’s trib­utes in the pi­azza, The Flam­ing Lips in the park and a flower-fes­tooned, sparklyspan­dex-clad pa­rade through the streets. Our kind of town.
