Party in the Peak District at Y Not Festival

Pikehall, Derbyshire

Watch big-name music acts perform with sweeping views of the Peak District National Park as your backdrop at the Y Not Festival.

The Peak District sets the stage for one of the UK’s best music festivals in 2018 that you’ve probably never heard of, until now.  

Originally set up as a big garden party by a group of school friends in 2005, Y Not? started with 500 attendees, doubled its attendance each year for the first few years and now brings in headline acts to play for a middling-sized audience of lucky ticket holders.

The festival’s luscious location in the Peak District and plenty of food and drink options – a Cider and Ale festival on site, a whisky bar, a beach-themed cocktail bar and food stalls for meat lovers, veggies and vegans – make this music fest the complete package. 

Y Not? takes place 26-29 July, and this year’s headliners include The Libertines, Manic Street Preachers, Kaiser Chiefs and Jamiroquai.
