“After an amazing 2018 festival, we’re so happy to have a 2019 line-up bursting at the seams,” Y Not organisers said of the first announcement. “We’ve got a huge mix of new and old faces to the Derbyshire Dales, with massive returns from classic bands such as White Lies, plus the huge welcomes to the UK’s hottest emerging stars like Idles and Mahalia. Not forgetting 3 huge headliners.”

Tickets for Y Not Festival 2019 are now on sale.


Last year’s event was headlined by The LibertinesCatfish and The Bottlemen and Jamiroquai.

Meanwhile, headliners Foals recently made their return with ‘Exits‘ – the lead single from their upcoming dual album release for 2019.
