Held in Derbyshire, the Y-Not Festival started in 2006 with over 30 bands and DJs. This 3 day young festival steers away from sponsorship and high prices. In 2008 the festival runs from Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd August over two stages at a site on Mouldridge Lane, near Matlock, Derbyshire.

The festival attempts to have an intimate nature, with many of the bands camping with festival goers, and friendly stewards. The festival will be increasing its capacity this year to 2500 people offering 50 acts across 2 stages with a diverse mix of music from Indie rock right through to high energy African music to Rock and Roll.
