- The NME Big Read: Blossoms – Friends Like These
Joining the aforementioned three bill-toppers across the weekend will be the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Pale Waves, Fontaines D.C., Kelis, Sleaford Mods, The Big Moon, Jake Bugg, Black Honey and Circa Waves (Thursday headliners).
“We can’t wait to headline this year’s event. Y Not was the first festival I ever went to in 2012 so to be back there headlining is really quite surreal,” said Blossoms frontman Tom Ogden. “It’s going to be a very special night.”
Stereophonics’ Richard Jones added: “If the last time we played Y Not is anything to go by this year’s festival will be great. In 2017 the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the crowd who were up for a good time.
“I remember watching Slaves and Jake Bugg who were both on form. After the year everyone has been through, I’m sure it will be a memorable weekend for everyone!”
Jason Oakley, Managing Director at Y Not Festival, commented: “After a tough year for live music, there’s finally some light at the end of the tunnel and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Y Not Festival for the celebration we all deserve.
“We’ll be bringing our most exciting line-up yet with three explosive headliners, Stereophonics, Bombay Bicycle Club and Blossoms as well some of the UK’s rising stars like Jade Bird, The Lathums, Holly Humberstone and so many others. Thank you for sticking with us and we can’t wait to see you all there.”
