For most of the year Portmeirion is one of the most tranquil villages in Wales.
But this weekend tens of thousands of music lovers will turn it into one of the busiest places in North Wales.
We sent our reporter Rob Shelley, to find out what all the fuss was about.
It has been a very wet and windy day for much of Wales. There have been gales gusting up to 67mph in Aberdaron and 55mph on Mumbles. The weather has also caused some disruption to this weekend's Festival No.6 in Portmeirion, North Wales, with some acts cancelled.
So will it get any better? Gillian Davies has all the details.
The Manic Street Preachers have announced they will play a headline slot at this year's Festival No. 6 in Portmeirion, Gwynedd.
The festival - which runs from 13th - 15th September - will see the band's first live show in the UK since 2011.
"The band are currently recording their eleventh studio album - some of which may well be aired for the first time on holy Welsh soil at this one-off 2013 UK festival appearance", the band said on their website.
Organisers of Festival No 6 say they hope to provide a 'lasting legacy' for the north Wales village.Read the full story ›
Portmeirion features as part of a new Royal Mail stamp collection, depicting 26 landmarks across the country.
One of Wales' top visitor attractions, the North Wales village was created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis in a Mediterranean style starting in the early 20th century.
Huw Jones, Chair of Portmeirion Ltd, said "Portmeirion is known far and wide for its beauty and character and it is very appropriate that these stamps will carry that message across the world for everyone to enjoy."
