New for 2012

This year's improvements include a new stage, a bigger line-up, a new arena, more stalls, more food, more to do onsite, improved camping facilities, with site access on Thursday possible for the first 2,000 at £9 per ticket.

The festival is expected to run the reward scheme for people to get to and from the festival greenly in 2012. The hope is to cut the carbon footprint down to a minimum, by having at least 60% of festival goers arrive by either public transport or 4+ people in each car. In doing so, festival goers will be rewarded with lanyards, programmes, posters, T-shirts and showers.

To reduce the festival's carbon footprint and also to increase accessibility, there will be a free shuttle bus which connects the Buxton - Ashbourne bus route, and Matlock train station to the Festival. Travellers will be able to simply book their free place online at www.ynotfestivals.com/bus.php once the service becomes available.

More information will be here when available.
