Y Not? Festival continue to make us yearn for the summer with their second wave of acts revealed.

Y Not? Festival 2018

Organisers lifted the lid last night on who’ll be heading down to Derbyshire this July. With The Libertines, Catfish and the Bottlemen and a UK festival exclusive performance from Jamiroquai all headlining this years’ festival.

Y Not? have now added The Wombats, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Kurupt FM and more. Those that get there on the Thursday will be rewarded for their early arrival with performances from Razorlight and Reverend and the Makers.

The Wombats recently put out their fourth album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Along with classics like ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’ and ‘Techno Fan’, it’s set to be a performance where nostalgia meets the new when the Liverpool trio take to the stage.

Returning to Derbyshire and one of our highlights from last year’s festival, Blaenavon will be showing what they’ve been up to since their winter tour. Also coming back to Y Not? are King No-One and helping to shake the cobwebs out the hair from the previous night with a workout, Mr. Motivator.

Already announced to play at the festival, Circa Waves, Kaiser Chiefs, Seasick Steve, The Sherlocks and more. To accomodate for what’s already a massive line-up, Y Not? Festival is moving to Aston Farm, which is still on the same road as its previous location.

As part of the festival’s overhaul after last year’s event was plagued with issues, the new location will also see a new security, traffic management and site team implemented. After listening to it’s audience, Y Not? looks to make sure the festival delivers it’s highest standards to date since it’s inception in 2005.

Festival organiser Simon Mawbey spoke about the changes; “we’re so happy to be back with our biggest line up to date. There are a lot of changes and improvements being made to make sure the festival is the best it’s ever been in 13 years and I’m excited that we can come back stronger than ever.”
