Y Not Festival is for ALL ages and an epic weekend away for families. Not only is it a chance to instill really good music taste into your little ones, we have countless things going on all day for kids of all ages.
The Flying Seagull Project are a troupe of clowns, magicians, circus performers and musicians. They’ve been spreading love, light and laughter across hospitals, orphanages, schools, marginalised communities and refugee camps since 2007. We are so so honoured to have them return to Y Not this year.

We appreciate that families want to rock out, but may still need a decent night’s sleep. Our Family Camping area is still heaps of fun, but a little less hectic.
– NEW FOR 2022 – Family parking is located right nect to the car park, so you don’t need to lug your kids stuff for ages from the car. There are separate toilets to the rest of the campsites and showers just for families.
The Family Campsite will also be equipped with baby baths, free nappies and changing facilities so it’s perfect for those parents with really little ones.
