Set in the Peak District National Park at Pikehall, near Matlock and Chesterfield, this year’s Y Not Festival boasts one of the hottest line-ups that the summer has to offer.
Headlining will be We Are Scientists, The Wombats and The View, not to mention performances from other top acts including Pigeon Detectives, Reverend and the Makers, The Subways. Frightened Rabbit, Future of the Left, Ghost Poet, British Sea Power, Pulled Apart By Horses, Huey Morgan, Hadouken and many many more.
This year there will also be a new rock stage where you can see the likes of Rolo Tomassi, Lower Than Atlantis, The XCERTS, Turbowolf, Brontide and more.
A Festival spokesman said: “We always put together a varied and electric range of music, from country folk, to indie rock and everything else in-between.”
“At Y Not you can see great live music, quench your thirst with one of a huge selection of local ales and ciders or watch the sunrise from your campfire.”
He added: “Whatever you want from a festival you will find it here and have a fantastic weekend. So why not?”
As well as great music and other fun activities and events Y Not Festival prides itself on being a family-friendly festival. They have a dedicated quiet family camping area situated a few minutes walk from both the main arena and car park. There are showers and toilets in family camping, and last year they picked up the award for Best Toilets’ at the 2011 Festival Awards.
The bash also took home the prize for The Grassroots Festival Award in 2011.
