As we’re expecting a lot of festival to have to, Y Not Festival have cancelled their 2020 festival which was due to take place 24th – 26th July at Pikehall, Derbyshire. They have announced a date for Y Not 2021, which will take place on 29th of July – 2nd of August 2021.

The was festival was due to feature Royal Blood, Richard Ashcroft, James and some of our favourite new bands including The Lathums, Larkins, Vistas, The Reytons and many more.

Y Not Festival have issued an update addressed to “Y Notters” telling them that due to the COVID-19 pandemic they have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s festival. The organised said “With everything going on in the world right now, we know this is the right thing to do. The safety of the audience, artists, crew and wider community has to come first. Y Not Festival draws on the expertise of many fantastic people across many services from emergency planning to medical professionals. These people are going to be needed both locally and nationally, now, and in the sumer more than ever. We do not want to put additional pressure on the health and emergency services at this time.”

The festival have giving two options for people who already have a ticket for this years festival. They are pleading with people to swap their ticket for a 2021 ticket to help ensure they can put on next years festival after the loss of this year. As a thank you for exchanging they are offering certain upgrades; you will receive a free early entry pass for Thursday 2021. If you already have an early entry pass then you will be upgraded to VIP for free and if you’re lucky enough to already have both then you will be offered free parking.

If you cannot attend next years festival then you will be able to claim a full refund.

In order to claim either of these two options you must fill in the form with the link provided and let them know your choice so they can start the transfer/refund process.

The form can be accessed from here.
