Slumpedon desks with our faces in computers, books, and other such mundanities- the only glimmer of light is the soon to be festival season revealing what it has for us. Winner of best small festival in 2012, Y NOT Festival, now in its tenth year has released a mammoth line-up. Line ups are usually great, but somehow leave us wanting. Do you need a festival whose line up reaches into the deepest, darkest depths of your eclectic tastes? Y NOT might just be able to… Hip hop hero, check. British Acid house influenced Rock Pioneers, check. Game of Thrones actor come R&B singer, check.
The man, the myth and also sometimes the lion, Snoop Dogg is set to headline the festival alongside Basement Jaxx, and if we ‘move on up’ the bill we are also bequeathed the gift of Primal Scream. The line-up continues to impress with Reverend and The Makers, Johnny Marr, Ocean Colour Scene, Saint Raymond, Nick Mulvey and Pulled Apart by Horses. As well as their stellar line up the Y NOT offers performing arts comedy and is set in the idyllic Peak District- it’s time to swap the muddy field for panoramic countryside views. Y NOT is renowned for its impressive line-ups seemingly insisting on guitars, multiplicity and a bloody good time.
