Sgt. Pepper’s and the Summer of Love at Festival No.6 at Portmeirion, 7 — 10 September 2017 Tickets from £120.00 — Book now

By now, you’re well probably aware that 2017 marks 50 years since the release of The Beatles’ seminal album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – and Festival No.6 is going big on celebrating the occasion.

Festival-goers are heartily encouraged to bring their own Sgt. Pepper’s-themed costumes for Carnival No.6, which will lead a merry band of followers through the magical village of Portmeirion, to the festival’s main stage. There, they’ll be greeted by the 70-piece Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and The Bootleg Beatles, who’ll perform the landmark LP in its entirety.

Featuring Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane and All You Need Is Love, this UK festival exclusive is sure to be one of Festival No.6’s highlights.
