For one weekend a year Y Not Festival arrives in the Peak District. Starting life as a house party in 2005, our party spilt over into a festival in some of the most stunning countryside around. Some 14 years on, we still have the same ethos at heart – Enjoy amazing music, great food and carefree fun in the heart of the beautiful Peak District
Expect a line-up you won’t see anywhere else in the Peak District, alongside panoramic country views. Each year we see some of the biggest names in Indie, Rock & Pop. Pikehall has played home to artists from Noel Gallagher… to Snoop Dogg.
It’s not just about the music. Y Not is a jam-packed weekend with countless things to do. From comedy, paint fights and carnivals to our very own in-house cinema plus a top secret venue thrown in for good measure, you won’t want Monday to roll around! All you need to bring is yourself, some wellies, a killer fancy dress outfit and a strong appreciation of colour.
Whether you’re a Y Not first -timer or a hardened veteran, there’s check out Festival Safe for some handy hints and tips to have the best weekend:
