Y Not Festival poster

Crashing in to the 2021 wave of festival line-up releases, Y Not Festival have proven themselves to be a festival to take note of, with huge headline names and floods of buzzing new talent.

Stereophonics close off the Friday night festivities, with time-tested tunes that showcase exactly what the weekend is all about; shouting along to lyrics you love with your mates and already slightly sun-burnt skin. We can only keep our fingers crossed between now and the late July weekend that the group will play fan favourites, ‘Dakota’ creeping out as the prime example.

Any avid festival goer knows exactly how legendary a Bombay Bicycle performance is; the deceptively melodic tracks gain a new life when live, becoming electric signifiers of a summer in full swing. Just imagine ‘Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)’ reverberating through you as the sun goes down, and try to tell us you don’t instantly want to be at Y Not.

With Blossoms rounding off the Sunday shows, you’re guaranteed a setlist of indie-rock anthems, perfected in performance through years of gigging and lively festival showings. Indie-rock darlings DMA’S also come out of their lock down hiding to join them and once again take to the stage, and we can’t help but anticipate that this might be the most riotous set yet. With both bands having made the most of the more unusual times, we cannot wait to see how they jump guitar-first into their sets.

Early visitors are also treated to a performance by Circa Waves: festival favourites who need no introduction. Their tracks seem ready made for sunny days on a field – a star booking to get even more festival goers set up and raring to go on that earlier night if we’ve ever seen one.

Pale Waves, Sundara Karma, and Jake Bugg join the list, forming a well established rota that know not only how to perform, but how to perform for a festival as lively as this one. The Sherlocks, Jaws, and Bloxx are also set to make an appearance, the latter in particular being famed for outperforming bands miles above them in line-up lists. If you’ve already got your tickets, or are set to get them soon, make a note of Bloxx as a group to catch by any cost.
