On the back of last year’s success at the Y Not Festival in The Peak District, BIMM is to be an official partner for the second year – this time they’ll be providing the line-up for the brand new ‘Arnie’s in Association with BIMM‘ stage.
Arnie Flowers is the owner and farmer of Green View Farm in Pikehall in Derbyshire, where Y Not Festival takes place from Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July, bringing music of every genre to its fields. ‘Arnie’s in Association with BIMM’ will showcase 36 artists/bands and DJs from their campuses on its stage.
BIMM Artist Promotion & Festival Manager, Suzi Ireland said,
“After a very successful trial year, BIMM are delighted to have been invited back to run a stage at this year’s Y Not Festival. It appears every genre is covered from post-punk weirdness to soothing electro through to good ole’ rock and roll. We have a great team of students helping to run the stage as well, gaining valuable experience for their careers going forward.”

BIMM Manchester band, Barron‘s front man Alex had this to say:
“We are extremely excited to be playing at Y Not Festival this year. It’s a really good opportunity for us to play some new music to a lot of people over the summer, we can’t wait to play. The full line up looks amazing too, Noel Gallagher headlines which is a massive bonus for us. We play at 1 pm on Sunday.”
BIMM Manchester’s Good Foxy drummer, Callum adds:
“We’re looking forward to playing some great festivals over the summer, and through contacts at BIMM, we were really excited to have secured gigs at The Great Escape, Truck fest, and Y Not Festival. This is a great chance for us to play our music to new audiences in different areas.”
Getting involved in festivals is all part of the BIMM experience and just one of the ways they connect the students to a life in music.
