Kelis, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Editors, The Coral and Band of Skulls have all been added to the line-up for this year’s Y Not Festival.
The Derbyshire festival, which takes place over the weekend of July 29 to 31, will also feature Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Madness and Catfish and the Bottlemen.
Tickets, priced at £99.50, are available now here.
The second installment of Y Not’s line-up boasts of plethora of international talent starting with alt-rock chart-toppers Editors. The band’s dark and brooding sounds will top the bill on Friday night’s main stage. NYC’s Kelis also joins the party, a set sure to have crowds dancing along to her many hits including ‘Milkshake’. Soon to release their fourth album ‘By Default’, Band Of Skulls head to Y Not this year armed with their blues-tinged, garage rock vibes. Fellow guitar-slingers and ‘Scooby Snack’ stars Fun Lovin’ Criminals also are set for the festival this year whilst a special addition comes in the form of indie outfit The Coral. The band will perform for Y Not’s ‘early birds’ on the Thursday evening of the festival.
Elsewhere Y Not’s rock-flavoured cocktail consists of Neck Deep, Beans on Toast, Lucy Rose, Milky Chance and Joy Division/New Order legend Peter Hook, performing with his band The Light. Festival-goers will be spoilt for choice as their soundtrack to the Derbyshire bash also includes The Lancashire Hotpots, Eliza & The Bear, Sunset Sons, Lucy Spraggan, Fickle Friends and the rather ferocious, amp-abusing Eagulls.
Across the 12 stages of Y Not further additions are Heck, Dinosaur Pile Up, Lonely The Brave, Queen Kwong, White and the 90s-inspired rising talents of Milk Teeth. Public Access TV, Dead!, Creeper, Traams, Nai Harvest, Reigning Days, Shame and Francobollo all also feature in a line-up bursting at the seams.
