Small but feisty music and arts festival set in the rolling Peak District.
Calling a festival Y Not is pretty punchy – although when the lineup’s this good, it sort of justifies the name. A mix of indie, soul and good old rock’n’roll is represented here, with headline acts in 2014 De La Soul and Razorlight keeping the Peak District crowds amused.
It’s got a reputation to draw a melting pot of people of all ages – with the common thread being that they’re there to have a jolly good time. It’s family-friendly, too, with extra activities and performances such as hoola hooping, mask and costume making and small carnivals making their way through this particular spot in Derbyshire.
