The organisers of Y Not Festival, Broadwick Live want to increase its capacity and move the festival to a new site.
We have seen a licence application to host the festival in multiple fields at Aston Hill Farm, Pikehall in the Derbyshire Dales. The farm is a few hundred metres away from its current site.
With more space, the organisers are also wanting to increase the capacity of the event.
2018: 30,000 + staff, artist and guests
2019: 35,000 + staff, artist and guests
2020: 39,999 + staff, artist and guests
No acts have been confirmed for 2018 yet, we expect announcements to start from mid-January.
The gorgeous Peak District countryside becomes home to Y Not Festival, 27th-30th July 2017. If you’re keen to see up and coming acts, with some 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.
This year saw the likes of The Vaccines, Stereophonics and Two Door Cinema Club, as well as Jake Bugg, Happy Mondays, Frank Turner, Clean Bandit, Maximo Park plus many more booked for the event. However, this summers event was plagued by torrential rain and mud. The organisers will address this at the new site with better access points and making it sustainable towards adverse weather conditions.
