Y Not Festival announce new site and improvements for 2018

After last year’s Y Not Festival had to be cut short due to bad weather causing chaotic conditions on site festival-goers were quick to criticise but organisers of the long-running event promised they would return in 2018.

The festival is set to take place 26 to 29 July 2018 and in an update on their website today (16 January 2018) they said they had, “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”. They also shared the news they would be moving to a new location, just one field over from their previous site in Pikehall, Derbyshire.

The new position of the site increases the suitability and improves the number of access points for vehicles. This means better access for vehicles, emergency and site vehicles, whilst also providing better access for festival goers arriving at the festival.

They go on to explain the move allows a rethink on the position of campsites in relation to the arena and the routes between campsites to make it as quick and easy to get around as possible.

Organisers also explained they were making improvements to security and in the way staff would be briefed to ensure they could help festival-goers to the best of their abilities.

With tickets set to go on general sale when the line-up is announced but a pre-payment plan already available Y Not sign off the update saying, “once again, thank you all so much for your patience and continued loyalty. We’re really excited by the improvements to Y Not we’re going to be able to make. We will have more updates with you soon and we promise to keep all of you in the loop throughout the year.”

The pay monthly plan is available via their website here.
