Y Not Festival reveals 2022 line up

The North’s essential music festival Y Not returns to the Peak District after 2 years away

Y Not Festival is back for 2022! The North’s essential music festival returns next summer after two years away on 29th – 31st July to bring music lovers the celebration they all deserve. For their fifteenth edition, Y Not are delighted to announce two of the UK’s best live acts as their 2022 headliners – Courteeners and Blossoms. More artists are to be announced! Y Not Festival back on sale via www.ynotfestival.com , with Tier 1 weekend tickets close to selling out.

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.

The Manchester rock band Courteeners have released an impressive six top 10 albums and it all began with St. Jude in 2008 and the anthem ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ – St. Jude was an incredible and era defining record that set the stage for their later works including: 2010’s Falcon, 2013’s Anna, which included ‘Are You Still In Love With A Notion?’ And their latest 2020 album More. Again. Forever. Prepare yourselves for a HUGE Saturday night at Y Not!

Blossoms return to Y Not for their first headline performance on The Big Gin stage 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. Their second album Foolish Loving Spaces hit the No.1 album spot in 2020 and continued their brilliant success. 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.” 

This is a line up for the true music fans – with a rich weekend of iconic musical talent, from Nothing But Thieves to pop and soul queen Gabrielle and rap royalty Eve to acclaimed indie outfits Sundara Karma, alt-rockers Sports Team and post-punk duo Sleaford Mods. Plus, next summer will see some of the hottest UK talent and the next generation of headliners; Pale Waves, Jade Bird, Beans On Toast, Alfie Templemen, Vistas, Larkins, Giant Rooks, Airways, Lauran Hibberd and the return of local legends, The Lancashire Hotpots.

Each year, Y Not Festival proudly builds its programme for families and children of all ages – we have our own dedicated family camping area, and family zone to offer endless hours of fun for children with all day games & activities, magic shows and much more. 

Y Not 2022 line up:  Courteeners, Blossoms, Nothing But Thieves, Sleaford Mods, Sports Team, Pale Waves, Sundara Karma, Gabrielle, Eve, Jade Bird, Beans On Toast, Alfie Templemen, Vistas, Larkins, Giant Rooks, Airways, Lauran Hibberd and The Lancashire Hotpots. More acts to be announced.
