Back for its thirteenth year this summer, Y Not Festival will take place in Pikehall, Derbyshire from 26th-29th July. Since 2005, when it began life as a house party spilling over into deepest Derbyshire, the event has remained home grown and true to its roots. The festival offers a glorious weekend of live music, family fun, comedy, street food and much more – all in the heart of the Peak District.

Festival organiser Simon Mawbey says, “We can’t wait for this year’s Y Not festival. With legendary acts such as BRMC, The Wombats and Razorlight added to the bill, we hope fans will see this as our biggest year yet.”

Main Stage

Y Not recently announced that their new and improved site will be Aston Hill Farm, adjacent to the previous site on Mouldridge Lane. The festival will still take place in the unbeatable setting of the Peak District and the benefits of the location include clearer routes for festival-goers and improved access for service vehicles.

In addition to the site change, Y Not have continued their ongoing communications about improvements, following on from their 2018 Manifesto. This includes the site, staffing, security and traffic management. The updated pledges will ensure this year’s festival will set the highest standards for all Y Not customers.
