Y Not Festival share their second wave of acts for 2023! Triumphantly returning last year after two years away, the sixteenth edition of the North’s essential music festival is back on 28th – 30th July. More acts have just announced to join the party this summer, alongside headliners Royal Blood, Kasabian, Paul Weller and Bombay Bicycle Club. Y Not Festival tickets are on sale via www.ynotfestival.com
New names revealed today include Wigan rockers The Lathums, energetic anthem-makers Sea Girls, festival favourites The Pigeon Detectives, acclaimed indie trio Mystery Jets and many more.
Today’s additions bring multiple up-and-coming artists to Y Not, like Caity Baser, who has already carved out a successful presence in the UK since the release of her Top 40 single ‘X & Y’. Plus, empowering hypnotic alternative rock hybrid YONAKA, vibrant and refreshing Dublin musician CMAT, British-born Australian singer-songwriter Thomas Headon, and Nu Metal “pop provocateur” Cassyette.
Late night DJs have also been announced, including a set from Mercury Prize nominated Faithless – a history that stretches back some 25 years, Faithless have long occupied a pivotal position in the world of British electronica. Marrying elements of house, trip-hop, dub and a songwriting flair into arena-filling, explosive, euphoric dance floor classics, their accomplishments tell their own story – seven Top 10 singles and six Top 10 albums (three at Number 1), resulting in excess of 15 million sales worldwide.
With a career spanning beyond a decade, Hannah Wants’ rise from self-taught turntablist to global star has been nothing short of meteoric. An acclaimed producer with over ten years professional DJ experience, her musical upbringing of UK garage, speed garage, 4×4 and bassline house evolved into her now house-focussed sound. Hannah continues to push boundaries, and now she’s headed to Y Not.
Comedy headliners set to take the stage at Y Not Festival are English television comedian and well-known star of Trigger Happy TV, Dom Joly. Also Angelos Epithemou, performed by English actor and comedy writer Dan Renton Skinner.
Each year, Y Not Festival proudly builds its programme for families and children of all ages – with its own dedicated family camping area, and family zone to offer endless hours of fun for children with all day games & activities, magic shows and much more.
Jason Oakley, Managing Director at Y Not Festival, says “We’re thrilled to add so many more brilliant names to the line-up this year. There’s so much fresh talent joining our incredible headliners, as well as some Y Not regulars who we can’t wait to welcome back. We’re so grateful for the continued support from everyone – not long to go now!”
