For one weekend a year, the gorgeous Peak District countryside becomes home to the Y Not Festival.
There has been steady, organic growth since it began life as a gathering of young people attending an overspilling house party in deepest, darkest, Derbyshirest, Derbyshire. But it does retain the carefree, good-time atmosphere of those original, dawning years.
The festival is still run by the same small team of passionate enthusiasts it was all those years ago (albeit a little older and a little wiser), but with the same ethos at heart – great people having a great time makes a great festival.
Stunning panoramic views of the countryside, a fully stocked bar of local ales and ciders, a mouth-watering selection of food and more live music than you could ever possibly take in.
All you need to provide is the memories (and a killer fancy dress outfit).
Y Not is about music. Well, it’s about having an amazing time outdoors, surrounded by friends, forgetting about spreadsheets or computers or homework or the school run.
But it is about music.
We bill our line up with the Y Notters at the centre. Acts that we know and love and have seen live many times ourselves in most cases and will provide the best possible experience for the weekend.
A melting pot of emerging, established, eclectic, emotional, energetic, expressive and exhilarating live music from every conceivable genre-huge internally renowned artists, under the radar bands and the cream of the crop of local talent. If you don’t come for something you already love, you will find something new to love.
