Y Notters can expect "outdoor high jinks", as the festival organisers themselves describe this increasingly popular music festival in Derbyshire. The music is the main draw here with the talented curators attracting some great acts over the years, with 2016 being no exception. All the more impressive, as this festival has not become overgrown and retains much of its carefree charm of its original years. Y Not? won the award for best medium festival at the 2015 Festival Awards and has continued to go from strength to strength ever since.

You'll also love the stunning panoramic views and local produce and ciders on offer. Expect a weekend to remember for all the family.
