Y Not Festival 2017

241 posts in this topic

So after a rather successful 2016 Festival (In my opinion)

What are peoples thought on the 2017 Edition??

Will there be another capacity increase?

Even a site move?

Potential Acts?

Etc, Etc...

Y-not was the highlight of my summer as far as the festivals were concerned, Perfect in every way, Hopefully they keep it the same for next year, with  an outdoor stage instead the quarry tent! Not a clue on who may be on the line-up, but I'm sure they'll come up with the goods again

Same here, first festival with the family, instead of going alone, and they all loved it. 

 

Agree 100% that another outdoor stage is needed, maybe keep the Quarry but get another big stage in there somewhere

Some of the increase in capacity this year was due to Noel Gallagher. It was a rather large jump in capacity for the festival so unless they manage to book at least one act of equal size I'd imagine it being the same or less. There were a few teething problems with the increased in numbers as well so who knows.

 

I like that there is only one outdoor stage. Suppose one more outdoor stage will help in some overcrowding tents for some acts. But the tents need a rejig. The silent disco needs to be in a bigger tent.

Either the This Feeling or BIMM tent needs to be nearer the main stage to pick up more passing festival goers. Criminally low crowds for some decent acts.

Anyone know when the bands will be announced and any rumours?  I think they were announced on the 8th Feb last year!

The Y Not Twitter page said some announcements are coming this month, so hopefully that means the first lineup news too. I'd probably say Manic Street Preachers are a good shout since they're playing Newcastle the week after the festival.

Playing Kendal Calling, so Manics are looking even more likely now

Hope so!!! I reckon the lineup will be announced at 7pm on the 1st to coincide with next batch of tickets being released.

Y Not is owned by Global now that also owns Boardmasters, Festival No. 6, Glass Butter and a bunch of other medium/small fests so may get some cross over with line ups.

That Kendal Calling lineup on the same weekend is amazing. Is there generally much cross-over of acts?

Last year, they shared quite a few acts. They shared Noel Gallagher, Madness, Catfish, Everything Everything, The Hives and a few other smaller names

Metronomy, Franz Ferdinand & Manic Street Preachers is my guess

With Slaves, Jake Bugg & Maximo Park as subs

Y Not with new owners are using a new PR team. They normally send out embargoed releases, going by the other festivals they do releases for. None for Y Not have been sent out yet. So unless publications hear something soon it's doubtful. 

Y Not used to do a bit out a countdown on their socials as well. 

But new owners, newly appointed pr. So who knows might be a surprise for punters and press!

Can't see Manics headlining myself.

They did Truck last year which basically is a smaller version of Y Not - headliners there usually are lucky to even sub Y Not (see Catfish) - if Manics do play, they'll probably sub.

Metronomy are a good shout, not sure about Franz, I can't see them flying over because they're in Benidorm that weekend as well as Kendal.

I'd go with Metronomy, Stereophonics and probably someone like the 1975.

Subbing I'd say possibly Slaves, Jack Garratt and either The Wombats or Mystery Jets  (I don't know why I've gone for these, just all on tour around that time.)

Maybe Truck had the money to shell out for a bigger headliner, went for Manics as the big one and with the remaining money went for smaller headliners such as Kodaline. Editors, who headlined Y Not last year, supported Manics on their Everything Must Go 20th anniversary tour, so Manics are still definitely Y Not headline material. Plus the Kendal announcement makes it all the more likely.

Are Catfish really a smaller headline?

Truck normally has one bigger headliner, I know one of theirs for this year is pretty big so I don't think Manics are too small for Y Not by any stretch especially considering Editors headlined last year.

With the Libertines being announced for Festival on the wall the following week, could they be a possible Headliner ? Would be a great booking if they could pull it off.

No chance, way too big for Y not.

Feeder are likely to be around at the time so could see them performing, possibly sub headlining, not sure how big they are these days, may even be third down.

I've also heard from someone who usually knows his stuff about festivals that Elbow are one of the headliners.

The Libertines bigger than Noel? 

Y Not may have a bit more cash to splash this year with the new owners wanting to hit the ground running

Libs are a LOT bigger than Noel IMO, Noel Gallagher was big with Oasis, but High Flying Birds are not that big. The Libertines have headlined Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury etc, if the festival do book them it'll be a massive booking and I'd love it if they did.

I think The Libertines "stock" as dropped over the past few years. Glastonbury they have only played a "special guests" slot in recent years.

It would be a massive booking for them. Prob the biggest. Noel was a massive booking for them last year and they increased capacity on the back of it. 

But if a new festival in the North East can book them, don't see why Y Not can't. But it's prob looking more likely Stereophonics, Elbow, Jake Bugg.
