After last year’s enforced hiatus, Y Not has confirmed its return in 2021 – with a string of big name acts.
Jason Oakley, festival managing director, said: “After a tough year for live music, there’s finally some light at the end of the tunnel and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the Y Not Festival for the celebration we all deserve.
“Thank you for sticking with us and we can’t wait to see you all there.”
