I’ll vote right up until 11pm and then I’m pulling the plug. But I’ll continue to think about voting whilst playing records in my room really loudly until 3am. How does that sound? #thethe

Awesome 😊

This was fabulous. Alas we need to know the future of NO 6 not the past.

Best festy I ever went to in 2015 (or maybe it was 2016)... & I was at the 1st Glastonbury & Isle of Wight ones! But it wasn't for the music (I'd only heard of 2 of the headliners: Grace Jones & Morrisey) but for the setting & atmosphere. Highlights for me were the poet Mike Garry, the interview with the late Howard Marks & the screening premier of Under Milkwood. However my memories are twinged with anger as my smartphone (with all the fabulous photos I'd taken) was stolen & 3 of my tyres were vandalised with nails while parked - which cost me an additional total of £450! 🙁

Run it for a whole week, headliners Fri, Sat & Sun. Give everyone time to mooch around the village and woods without running off to see acts 😊

It was perfect, let’s do it again

Festival No.6 is genuinely in every way the best festival I’ve ever been to. You guys have done such a good job curating such a wonderfully cultured festival, the atmosphere there is the friendliest and loveliest I’ve ever been to, and there’s easily something for everyone. I’m so glad that I can volunteer for you this year, and I hope I have the opportunity again some year! ❤️❤️❤️

Best festival I’ve ever been to (third time this year too…). The music, the buzz, the food, great beer and the people. Nothing like it! Please come back in 2020!

This is the best festival I have been to! Amazing venue, lots of kookiness, fabulous variety of acts and such a great vibe. Have been to 3 out of 5, sorry I won’t be there this year. 😣

That’s a real shame, we got engaged there in 2016 and came back married in 2017! We so hope you’ll be back. Fantastic festival and location 👍🏼

So quirky, authentic and exactly what you would wish for in your perfect festival. It kept its soul, didn’t sell out to the plastics and has a magic about it that makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Like Alice taking a trip to Wonderland and never being the same again…. Gutted the adventure is over ♥️

Last year was our first ever festival. We had the best time, utterly amazing, as we were packing up the tent, we were discussing coming back this year. Luckily we have tickets, and I’m so excited …… gutted you won’t be back in 2019, fingers crossed for 2020

We went for the first 4 years. First 3 were outstanding then went a bit glamping Mad. Primal scream the first year was a religious experience. Pet shop boys and I’m not a fan in general but probably one of my all time favourite sets. Oh and grace Jones hula hooping topless for 7 mins. Was a great festival to start.

So much love for FN6… have been to all but the first and would be so sad to see it go. A fixture. Sure there is a way to make it work in 2020 (or ‘19!) Be seeing you 🙌

Despite my rainy experience two years ago,I’m so glad I went – the atmosphere was still amazing, you’ve created an incredible event year after year – putting on this amazing festival – no matter what size it is – is an absolutely fantastic thing in itself, unless you’ve done it small or large no one truly understands the risk, hard work everyone puts in..its takes years /months in preparation to ensure everyone has an amazing time (not easy)- not to mention the local economic benefit – hope you return – you’ll be missed – don’t give up – Big festival love 🦄🌟💜

I’m very glad I got a ticket then as I’ve heard such great things about this festival and have wanted to go every year – so footloose, fancy free and going alone I’ll get to see what will hopefully be the best year yet!!!!

I was hoping to go to this next year?!….a fantastic festival no doubt, however running and financing a festival is a huge challenge. There are many stories of festivals throughout the country who’s organisers struggle to make them viable long term. The music industry needs festivals to showcase rising talent, it’s one of artists main exposures and income benefits “as well as touring” because these days there’s no decent income coming from music sales……Sad news indeed.

Absolutely gutted!!! Not been the last couple of years but made it twice and can honestly say it’s the best festival I’ve been too. Great vibe, great food and amazing beer at a festival???? Hope you make a return 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Devastated. On my bucket list but haven’t made it yet due to work commitments. Hopefully the breather won’t be a long one. X

It is no secret that the festival has lost a lot of money over the years.

Please stop calling festival organisers greedy, they are just trying to make a living like you do by going to work every day.

Makes me cross.
