Y Not Festival

Contrary to rumours circulating on social media, Derbyshire Dales District Council did not revoke the Premises Licence that enables Y Not festival to operate. These rumours are totally incorrect.

In fact we understand that the decision to close the Pikehall-based festival early was taken by the festival organisers because of weather-related safety concerns. Derbyshire Police assisted the organisers in communicating the message and helping people to leave the site.

Tim Braund, Head of Regulatory Services at the District Council said:

"Contrary to claims in some totally inaccurate reports on social media, we did not revoke the event’s licence. Whilst this licence is issued by the District Council a whole host of authorities are responsible for making sure that the festival meets all its requirements. We have asked the relevant parties to organise a debrief as soon as possible so that we can look properly at what happened this year.”
