Y Not Festival is back in full force for 2021! The North’s essential music festival returns this year, Friday 30th July – Sunday 1st August, to bring fans amazing three days of music from the UK’s next generation of talent to the treasured legends, with headliners Stereophonics, Bombay Bicycle Club and Blossoms plus many more. Tier 3 weekend tickets have already sold out, with other tiers selling out fast.
Opening the weekend on Friday night are one of Britain’s best live bands Stereophonics. An unstoppable force in the UK’s alternative rock scene, Stereophonics have stood the test of time and released 11 albums over 3 decades, accumulating a massive 7 Number 1s among them. Expect to hear all their massive hits and so much more when they grace the stage on the first day of Y Not.
Stereophonics founding member Richard Jones says, “If the last time we played Y Not is anything to go by this year’s festival will be great. In 2017 the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of the crowd who were up for a good time. I remember watching Slaves and Jake Bugg who were both on form. After the year everyone has been through, I’m sure it will be a memorable weekend for everyone!”
Bombay Bicycle Club continue their reunion activity this summer for their Y Not appearance as our Saturday headliners. Having released their Top 5 album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong last year, their first record in six years, hardcore fans are in for an exciting treat. After a period of time focusing on solo endeavours, the band have returned with a bang, where they will no doubt pick up where they left off with a spectacular live show. It’s been over ten years since the group first played at Y Not in 2009, and we can’t wait to welcome them back!
Indie-pop outfit Blossoms return to Y Not for their first headline performance on The Big Gin stage on Sunday night. The quintet from Manchester broke through back in 2016 with their hit self-titled debut record, which earned them a Mercury Prize nomination the following year. Their second album Foolish Loving Spaces was released just last year, hitting the No.1 album spot. Get ready for an energetic show, packed with fan favourites including early tracks ‘Charlemagne’ and ‘Honey Sweet’, plus newer material ‘Your Girlfriend’, ‘The Keeper’ and ‘If You Think This Is Real Life’.
