Quite happy with that bunch. Looking forward to seeing Frank Turner solo, and dependant on clashes will go see Frank Carter as well.

I'd like to know who is headlining the other stages on The Friday at the minute, because I CBA with The Vaccines.

His website doesn't mention Y Not yet, but says he's playing Kendal Calling on 30th so must be either Friday or Saturday

I wonder how many more acts they have to announce,

 

Can't be many main stage ones I'd guess.

 

I really hope they have sorted the second stage issues out as I can see there being some big crowds there

I wouldn't expect anything to change, it will be a similar capacity as last year, if not slightly less across the whole site, no need for any changes to happen, the 2nd stage is much better now than what it used to be.

Not entirely true. Capacity is 24,000. With a vision to increase.

It looks like the tent for The Quarry is going to be bigger according to a post on the Facebook page. That's great as it was rammed for some of the smaller bands last year. I couldn't get in for Beans on Toast as it overflowed so its good that they have addressed the issue.

Proper excited for this, it'll be my first festival.

Read that it's quite teeny, with people who can't hack it but surely you get that anywhere?

Other than that, whats the atmosphere like? Read an article about last years and they said the music was good but it lacked a decent atmosphere

Not as teeny as Leeds Festival, in my opinion.  But like most festivals will depend where you camp and the acts you see. 

The closer you camp to the arena area the younger the crowd generally. Find the happy medium if you not about that sort of crowd. 

Atmosphere depends on the acts, the stage and the weather! Generally found Y Not to be good. Not the best, but far, far from the worst. 

Still get an older crowd at Y Not. With the faithful that have been for years. They also tend to have a few older generation acts on that can draw a crowd. And an large beer/ale tent, all appealing to us oldies that 28+

Ah thanks! It's not that I've got a problem with the 'young' atmosphere, I'm 19 so I come under that haha but as annoying as the irritating people might be, I know it's gonna be like that at most places. The only problem I'd have is if there are people like that overwhelm the crowds when they clearly aren't bothered about the music or whatever. If I don't get a moment where the crowd all sing along to a song while the band goes quiet, I'll be so disappointed haha

Is anyone aware of when they send out tickets? Just become aware that I'm changing address about 3 weeks before the event and the tickets are due to be delivered to the previous address to which I won't have access after I move out...

Probs round about that time they'll send out tickets. 

Check the ticket confirmation email. Should be a link to log into outgoing account from there. Can probably change address if need to. Or all the details like ref. Number will be there to contact outgoing/y not.

The same happened with me last year, I just rang up the ticket office and arranged to pick them up on site,

 

All I had to do was take some ID

Arnie's stage added with BIMM bands. I enjoyed watching some bands in there last year and I'm looking forward to discovering more acts this year.

It's looking that way,

 

I'm hoping they have at least one more surprise, someone like Franz Ferdinand would top the line up off nicely for me

No way we're getting anyone that big. Someone on the same level as Maximo Park and Slaves though is potentially a decent prospect. Can't think who that could be though. Really hoping Spector get added to the lineup.
