NEW SITE + UPDATES

 

As part of our plans for the 2018 festival we promised that we’d keep you in the loop with the changes and improvements we were making.

We’ve been working really hard to make sure that when you join us in July, it’s the best Y Not it can possibly be. And it seems like a good time to give you an update on everything.

 

The Site

 

First and foremost Y Not will be moving…next door.

The drive and route to the festival will be exactly the same, we’re still based in Pikehall in the beautiful Peak District it’s just the new site will be the field next to the old one.

 

 

The new site allows us to address some of the challenges of the previous site location. The new position of the site increases the suitability and improves the number of access points for vehicles.

This means better access for service vehicles, emergency and site vehicles, whilst also providing better access for festival goers arriving at the festival.

This move has also allowed us to think about the layout and position of campsites in relation to the arena. The new site will have good routes between the campsites and arena for all festival goers, ensuring that wherever you are camped; your journey into the arenas will be as quick and easy as possible.

We will be releasing further information on the new site in the near future.

 

Traffic Management

 

The new site has car parks immediately accessible from the A5012, providing multiple access routes to improve the flow of traffic. More access routes will allow for traffic to be moved quickly and reduce ground stress on limited access points. 

 

Security

 

As part of our ongoing improvement of general site security, we’re excited to be working alongside Showsec; an award winning event and venue security specialist. We will also be implementing CCTV around the site.

We’re expanding our level of Steel Shield fencing for particularly exposed areas of the site. These are taller and stronger perimeters that make the campsites considerably more secure. Alongside this, we have increased roaming patrols around the perimeter of the festival.

 

Staff

 

This year, we will be increasing personnel and management structure on site so that there will be more staff than ever before. We are also reviewing the way that all staff and stewards are briefed, so that anyone representing Y Not is ready and able to assist to the best of their ability.

Once again, thank you all so much for your patience and continued loyalty. We’re really excited by the improvements to Y Not and will have more updates with you soon. And we promise to keep all of you in the loop throughout the year!

Love Y Not x

Y Not x Blythe House presents Superfood and friends

A special edition Faction to remember

 

On Sunday we teamed up with BBC Introducing to pull together a special edition Faction in aid of Blythe House Hospice.  What happened was a pretty dope Sunday afternoon of good music and good times. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re a fan of good music and rising local talent, then we hope you were there. The intimate venue meant that the shows was one that will go down in the memory book. Packed with all you lovely lot, we’re very excited that we were able to sell out and raise money for a really amazing cause.

The afternoon kicked off with a set from Nottingham based Daisy Godfrey. Her Soul + Punk blend lulled us straight into the afternoon.

Then, when Rob Green lost his voice (get well soon Rob) the hero that is Cameron Sinclair Harris stepped in to fill his shoes. The Nottingham born talent released his 5 song debut on Band Camp earlier this year and he’s certainly one to watch.

Our friends Vega Bay then warmed up Superfood just right…their song ‘Drench’ was a particular highlight. By this point the venue was packed and it really is amazing to be able to support local artists and have them support us too.

Finally Superfood finished the day off perfectly. Taking a break from their supporting slot for Wolf Alice, they joined us to help raise money for Blythe House Hospice and it really was a show to remember. If you haven’t checked them out, Spotify them – you won’t regret it! “Where’s the bass amp” is a personal favourite.

First stop, Nottingham complete! Keep an eye out because we might be bringing the show to your town next.
