Y Not confirms Editors, Kelis, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, The Coral & More

Festival Crowd Header

Kelis, Band of Skulls, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, The Coral and 24 more acts are now confirmed for Y Not 2016

The second installment of Y Not’s line-up boasts of plethora of international talent starting with alt-rock chart-toppers Editors. The band’s dark and brooding sounds will top the bill on Friday night’s main stage. NYC’s Kelis also joins the party, a set sure to have crowds dancing along to her many hits including ‘Milkshake’. Soon to release their fourth album ‘By Default’, Band Of Skulls head to Y Not this year armed with their blues-tinged, garage rock vibes. Fellow guitar-slingers and ‘Scooby Snack’ stars Fun Lovin’ Criminals also are set for the festival this year whilst a special addition comes in the form of indie outfit The Coral. The band will perform for Y Not’s ‘early birds’ on the Thursday evening of the festival.

Elsewhere Y Not’s rock-flavoured cocktail consists of Neck Deep, Beans on Toast, Lucy Rose, Milky Chance and Joy Division/New Order legend Peter Hook, performing with his band The Light. Festival-goers will be spoilt for choice as their soundtrack to the Derbyshire bash also includes The Lancashire Hotpots, Eliza & The Bear, Sunset Sons, Lucy Spraggan, Fickle Friends and the rather ferocious, amp-abusing Eagulls.
 
Across the 12 stages of Y Not further additions are Heck, Dinosaur Pile Up, Lonely The Brave, Queen Kwong, White and the 90s-inspired rising talents of Milk Teeth. Public Access TV, Dead!, Creeper, Traams, Nai Harvest, Reigning Days, Shame and Francobollo all also feature in a line-up bursting at the seams.
 
After being crowned ‘Best Medium Festival’ at the Festival Awards 2015 and their 10th birthday in the same year, Y Not is bigger, better and stronger than ever as all sights are set towards this July and the event’s 11th edition.
