Y Not Festival started life as a house party in 2005 and over the last 14 years has slowly grown to become one of the most loved events in the musical calendar. Previous headliners include The Libertines (2018) The Stereophonics (2017) and Madness in 2016. Despite previous years of weather troubles, which caused the festival to finish a day early in 2017, fans seem to be ecstatic about this years headliners.
