[News] Y Not Festival Lineup

You know what I enjoy even more than the UK's biggest festivals? The smaller ones. Last year I ventured back into my home county of Derbyshire to hit up Y Not festival, a homegrown, grass roots built from the ground up festival. Boy did I have a good time. The likes of The Wombats, We Are Scientists, Pulled Apart By Horses, Roots Manuva, Little Comets and a host more across numerous stages graced the fields. This year promises to be even bigger, and with the winning the best small festival award last year, they're going to want to keep the good graces coming their way. With real ale and cider on offer too, family and friends a like are sure to have a good time along with tasting some great local produce.

This summer, over the weekend of August 2nd-4th, the normally peaceful countryside will play host to a melting pot of talent old and new. Headlining the Big Gin Stage will be The Horrors, The Cribs and The Darkness along with Ash, The Joy Formidable, Sky Larkin, Swim Deep, Drenge, Willy Moon. Gracing The Quarry Stage will be The 1975, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Electric Six, Stealing Sheep, The Family Rain and Sons and Lovers. Thing stake a heavier turn on The Giant Squid Stage with Wet Nuns, We Are The Ocean, Sharks, Arcane Roots, Gnarwolves and The Computers playing their music to the tent. 

The full line-up can be seen over on the official site with tickets priced at just £79.50. More bands are yet to be announced. Treat yourself to some summer fun.

[Listen] 5 New Electric Six Tracks

It's been a while since we've had some new music from Electric Six but our friends over at Antiquiet have pointed us in the direction of 5 new tracks from the Detroit boys and that's a hell of a big chunk of their upcoming release Heartbeats and Brainwaves which according to their official website will hit stores later in the year in October. As AQ point out, the band have posted up a long descripton of the album and what we can expect to come from it. Give the tracks a spin below and get your groove on before jumping over to their Facebook page to read up on their thoughts regarding the album. They say of it that there's "no one single sound, no one single vision. We do everything. From the nu-garage...to the R&B goodness”. Interesting.
