[News] Y Not Festival Announces Initial Line-Up

As we've mentioned in the past few weeks, there are tonnes of festivals announcing their line-ups at the moment and all of them seem to be delivering some stellar line-ups. We have a reformed Outkast playing tonnes of dates the world over, Arctic Monkeys for Reading and Leeds, Snoop Dogg at Parklife, Beck at Bestival. Summer 2014 is already looking like one for the books. 

Keeping it real in the Derbyshire Countryside though, the ever growing Y-Not Festival has announced it's first few headliners and a bunch of acts playing their tents across the first weekend of August 1st-3rd. Dizzee Rascal and White Lies top the bill for the main stage, with some exciting looking names throughout the initial announcement. If you're up for a party, I'm sure Andrew W.K. will be happy to help out with that. Or maybe you're feeling a little more chilled, in which case Newton Faulkner can serenade you. Last year's Y Not was their biggest yet and by the looks of it the team their are planning something extra special for 2014. I'd highly recommend if you're in the UK and wanting to check out a grass roots festival with a really nice, relaxed atmosphere, make it this one.

If you're in a band and fancy playing the festival, head over to their Facebook page for more info and you could be doing just that; playing Y Not!

Tickets are on sale now and you can grab them here. Check out the announcement video below for the full line-up though.

[Listen] Cerebral Ballzy - "I Wanna Be Adored" (The Stone Roses Cover)

Living in Manchester, the amount of Stone Roses news/talk you hear on a day to day basis is probably too much to bare to the untrained ear. This though, this we like. New York residents Cerebral Ballzy covered the legendary Manchester band for a Zane Lowe session and the results can be heard below. They certainly made "I Wanna Be Adored" their own. Let us know what you think.

[Watch] Cerebral Ballzy - "Junky For Her" (Video)

East New York’s Cerebral Ballzy have thrown some gory visuals at us today for their track "Junky For Her". The single is from the band's Self Titled LP which hit us in the face on July 26th via Adult Swim’s Williams Street Records.  The video is said to be a throwback to 70’s gore flicks and sees lead singe Honor Titus getting the crap beaten out of him by a group of girls, feather pillows and all. Check it out and according to director Vice Cooler, Honor actually passed out during the last moments of the shoot, whether it was due to intoxication or the fact he'd just been beaten up by a room full of girls. Decide for yourselves above.

[Watch] Cerebral Ballzy - "Drug Myself Dumb" (Video)

Not too long ago we offered up a free download from the New York band Cerebral Ballzy to celebrate the release of their upcoming self-titled album. Today to celebrate further the band have offered up some visuals foryour pleasure. The video sees the guys wreak havoc in Las Vegas who surely wouldn't have seen it coming, but then again, it is the city of sin, I'm sure this stuff goes down daily.  The video was directed by Mason and filmed by Mason too along with Julian Gilbert and you can enjoy it up at the top.

"Drug Myself Clean" will feature on their self titled release which is set for shelves on July 26th via Adult Swim’s Williams Street Records. You can check them out on the road with Black Lips too if you're in the mood for some chaos. The dates are after the jump.
