Y Not Festival has come a long way since it started out 15 years ago, scooping up the UK’s Best Small Festival award and becoming one of the country’s most popular intimate festivals in the decade and a half since.

It takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Peak District National Park, curating a lineup that spans from rock and indie into sprinkles of dance.

And beyond the music, festival-goers can also enjoy a variety of local ales, themed cocktails, mouth-watering food, crazy golf, comedy, and an epic paint fight, all in the company of panoramic, lush countryside views.

Y Not Festival 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. Ticket-holders have the option to roll their tickets over to the 2021 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
