Derbyshire Venues & Accommodation For Every Occasion

Y-Not! We hear you say!

For one weekend a year, the gorgeous Peak District countryside becomes home to the Y Not Festival. Y Not is the Small, Fresh & Loud music festival, with a fantastic atmosphere and a history of amazing live acts. This year the 10th anniversary celebration is going to be amazing. 

There has been steady, organic growth since it began life as a gathering of young people attending an overspilling house party in deepest, darkest, Derbyshirest, Derbyshire. But it does retain the carefree, good-time atmosphere of those original, dawning years.

The festival is still run by the same small team of passionate enthusiasts it was all those years ago (albeit a little older and a little wiser), but with the same ethos at heart – great people having a great time makes a great festival.

Stunning panoramic views of the countryside, a fully stocked bar of local ales and ciders, a mouth-watering selection of food and more live music than you could ever possibly take in.

All you need to provide is the memories (and a killer fancy dress outfit).
