Abstract: In this paper we discuss an infinite class of AdS6 backgrounds in Type IIB supergravity dual to five dimensional SCFTs whose low energy description is in terms of linear quiver theories. The quantisation of the Page charges imposes that each solution is determined once a convex, piece-wise linear function is specified. In the dual field theory, we interpret this function as encoding the ranks of colour and flavour groups in the associated quiver. We check our proposal with several examples and provide general expressions for the holographic central charge and the Wilson loop VEV. Some solutions outside this general class, with less clear quiver interpretation, are also discussed.
