Music: Y Not Festival Preview


Fear not if you’re suffering from the glasto-blues, Derbyshire’s very own smaller-scale version is returning to the rolling hills.

Y Not will run from Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th August this summer and is set to be equally as successful as last year’s, which saw Y Not announced as the winner of the Best Small Festival category at UK Festival Awards 2012!

With a line-up including headliners The Horrors, The Cribs and The Darkness, Y Not 2013 will attract local and not-so-local music fans alike, who will flock to see their favourite bands on The Big Gin, The Quarry, The Giant Squid, The Allotment and The Hog & Barrel stages.

Following exciting Facebook competitions, festival-goers were, for the first time, invited to vote for up and coming artists that they would like to see perform at this summer’s event.

The festival’s seven themed bars sit across the festival site, providing festival-goers with anything from locally brewed ales and ciders, ice cold cocktails and a 50’s drive-in themed bar, and almost everything in between.

For those who don’t want to be caught out on the day by those ever-unfortunate band clashes, organisers have put together a festival planner HERE.

Tickets are just £79.50. For those wanting an extra day at Y Not festival 2013 (after all, why would we blame you?!), select the Thursday entry tickets for £12 extra per person.

Tickets can be bought HERE.
