Y Not Festival 2019

Passed

This event has been and gone.

Y Not is an independent music festival in the UK's Peak District National Park, welcoming a lineup of rock, indie and electronic music to the beautiful countryside each summer.

Previous winner of the UK's Best Small Festival, Y Not has come a long way since its humble beginnings nearly 15 years ago, and now plays host to some of music's greatest names, such as The Libertines and Dizzee Rascal.

And beyond the music, festival-goers can also enjoy a variety of ocal ales, themed cocktails, mouth-watering food, crazy golf, comedy and an epic paint fight, all in the company of panoramic, lush countryside views.

Please visit ynotfestival.com/ for more information.
