Y Not: What to Expect

Y Not Festival Main Stage

Y Not Festival programmes iconic performances alongside indie pioneers in one of the North's most picturesque settings. Over the years, names like Kasabian, Courteeners, Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher, and Snoop Dog have captivated audiences against the festival's stunning panoramic views.

From its humble beginnings as an overflowing house party in 2005, Y Not has evolved into a beloved staple of the UK festival circuit, embodying the spirit of being SMALL, FRESH, & LOUD. But it's not just about the music; Y Not promises a full weekend of adventure, featuring comedy acts, paint fights, carnivals, cinema, and an iconic fancy dress competition.

Spanning four days of camping, Y Not Festival creates an unforgettable community atmosphere from Thursday to Sunday. It's more than just a festival; it's a place where great people come together to have a great time, living up to its ethos every year.
