Dietary requirements

We kindly ask that you don’t bring your own food and drink into the Main Arena, however, if you have any specific dietary requirements due to health conditions please complete an Access Application to be pre-approved by the Access Team. This will avoid any confiscation of food and drink in advance of your arrival.

All of our traders are very knowledgable on dietary requirements and most are equipped with menu items that are vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free. If they don’t have something on their set menus, most will happily adjust a menu item to suit customers’ requirements.

Medication

If you require prescriptive medication with you during your time at the festival, please complete an Access Application to be pre-approved by the Access Team. This will ensure that security are aware that you will be bringing this to the festival. Please ensure all medication is kept in a clear polythene bag as it may need to be inspected upon arrival.

Additional information:

We operate on a case by case basis as we appreciate that everyone has different access requirements and we want everyone to have a great time at Y Not.

If you have any specific access requirements or wish to submit supporting evidence that is not listed above please complete an Access Application HERE and a member of the Access Team will be in touch.
