See our Y Not Festival review from last year

If you’re keen to see new, up and coming acts, with a few established artists thrown in for good measure at an intimate and friendly event then Y Not should be the festival on the top of your list. From sitting on hay bales watching acoustic intimate performances, raving in dance tents to massive main stage singalongs 

Party in the Derbyshire Peaks this summer with not only one of the finest line ups but great late night entertainment including a dance tent, silent disco, secret raves and friendly camp fire singalongs.
