Preview: Y-Not Festival 2012

 
By on Friday, 25th May 2012 at 9:00 am
 

Deep in the midst of the Peak District National Park, the sister festival to 2000 Trees is shaping up nicely. Winning the Grassroots Festival award and the coveted Best Toilets award at last year’s Festival Awards, Y-Not Festival is back to prove itself worthy of more trophies in its cabinet. Taking place on 3-5 August, there are six stages of the best British music from an array of scenes and sounds.

Headlining the Main Stage throughout the weekend are the UK indie mainstays the View (pictured above), the Wombats and We Are Scientists. With enough big radio hits under their cumulative belt to form the basis of a ‘Now That’s What I Call Mid-00s’ album, get your lungs ready for a sing-song. Backing them up are other indie stalwarts the Pigeon Detectives, British Sea Power and the Subways.

But it’s not just an indie festival, across all the stages are diverse acts from the hip-hop of Roots Manuva to the harder edged Pulled Apart By Horses. The Giant Squid stage is the haven of ‘heavier’ music over the weekend with big names Rolo Tomassi, Lower Than Atlantis, Turbowolf and Brontide gracing the Midlands.

If this sounds your thing – and if you’re a fan of UK music then surely it must be – then head on over to the official Web site to purchase tickets. Priced at just £75 for the weekend, there’s no reason not to visit the heart of Derbyshire for a weekend of summer music antics.

Alphabeat: Boyfriend
Cheesy, classic pop from the Danish geniuses. Nothing too complicated, nothing too mould breaking.

We Are Scientists – Impatient
Who doesn’t love this New York duo? Another sterling video from them featuring lots of hair.

Now, who doesn’t love this? Simply, pure pop magic.
