Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

For one weekend a year Y Not Festival arrives in the Peak District. Starting life as a house party in 2005, our party spilt over into a festival in some of the most stunning countryside around. Some 14 years on, we still have the same ethos at heart – enjoy amazing music, great food and carefree fun in the heart of the beautiful Peak District

Expect a line-up you won’t see anywhere else in the Peak District, alongside panoramic country views. Each year we see some of the biggest names in Indie, Rock & Pop. Pikehall has played home to artists from Noel Gallagher… to Snoop Dogg.

It’s not just about the music. Y Not is a jam-packed weekend with countless things to do. From comedy, paint fights and carnivals to our very own in-house cinema plus a top secret venue thrown in for good measure, you won’t want Monday to roll around! All you need to bring is yourself, some wellies, a killer fancy dress outfit and a strong appreciation of colour.

Stereophonics

Stereophonics appearing at this event

Welsh legends, Stereophonics, stormed into the public eye in the 90s with their blend of alt rock and soulful pop. Almost three decades on, Kelly Jones and company continue to deliver their combination of energetic pop hooks and bittersweet lyrical storytelling to the delight of an adoring audience.

Courteeners

Courteeners appearing at this event

Manchester's Courteeners both look and sound as though they've come straight out of another time and place, and yet, somehow, are bang up to date. Think Babyshambles meets The Smiths and you'll be somewhere close to their gritty, electrifying sound. The band, who have been friends since childhood, have grown into one of the UK’s premier guitar bands delivering such era-defining anthems as ‘Not Nineteen Forever’, ‘Are You in Love with a Notion’, ‘How Good It Was’, ‘The 17th’ and last year’s ‘Hanging Off Your Cloud’.

Blossoms

Blossoms appearing at this event

Since forming in 2013, indie pop band Blossoms have enjoyed widespread success and acclaim. Their 2016 debut Blossoms topped the album charts for two consecutive weeks and went on to earn the band BRIT Award and Mercury Prize nominations, while 2018’s Cool Like You charted at Number 4 in the UK album chart, spawning the anthemic singles I Can’t Stand It, There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) and How Long Will This Last? Their third studio album, 2020’s Foolish Loving Spaces was the band’s second UK Number 1 album, while their recent, fourth studio LP Ribbon Around The Bomb gave the band their third UK Number 1 album, with the album’s standout tracks Ode To NYC, The Sulking Poet and Care For already well established as firm fan favourites.
