1st acts for Y Not 2022

The 15th edition of Y Not Festival which place from Thursday 28th - Sunday 31st July at Aston Hill Farm, Pikehall, Derbyshire have announced the first wave of artists for 2002 including headliners Courteeners and Blossoms.

Spanning a career of over a decade, Courteeners are one of the UK’s most celebrated live acts. These seasoned festival performers continue their arena-filling mainstays on an international touring circuit. Now, six albums in, the local legends are bringing their energy and incredible catalogue to Y Not Festival on Saturday 29th July.

Blossoms return to Y Not for their first headline performance on Sunday night. The smooth Manchester quintet broke through in 2016 with their massive self-titled debut record, which earned them a Mercury Prize nomination the following year.  Get ready for an energetic show, packed with fan favourites and singalong hits ‘Charlemagne’ and ‘Honey Sweet’, plus newer material ‘Your Girlfriend’, ‘The Keeper’ and ‘If You Think This Is Real Life’.

Blossoms frontman Tom Ogden says,

We can’t wait to headline next year. Y Not was the first festival I ever went to in 2012, so to be back there headlining is really quite surreal. It’s going to be a very special night.”

Other artists announced today include Nothing but Thieves, Levellers, Sleaford Mods, Pale Waves, Sundara Karma, Beans on Toast and many more.

Jason Oakley, Managing Director at Y Not Festival, says,

We are so delighted to be announcing the first wave of our 2022 line up! After what has been an incredibly challenging two years for live music, and especially for so many other independent festivals, we are proud to present our line up and to welcome everyone back to Y Not Festival for the celebration we all deserve. We’ll be bringing our most exciting line-up yet with two explosive headliners, Courtneers and Blossoms, as well as some of the UK’s next generation of headliners like Jade Bird, Pale Waves, Nothing But Thieves, Sports Team and so many more big names and returning headliners to come. We will see you next year!
