[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.

[Watch] The Darkness - "Everybody Have A Good Time" (Official Video)

The new music video from The Darkness for their track "Everybody Have A Good Time" is a ride and a half. It also advises viewer discretion. The video takes place within the offices of the company 'Rock Hard Financial' and the video sees the executives partying hard and getting a little bit rowdy at a shareholder gala. See what you make of it at the top.

Hot Cakes is released on August 20th.

[Watch] The Darkness - "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" (Official Video)

As a kid in the UK or, well, anyone really, it was hard to avoid The Darkness in the early noughties with Permission to Land having a vast array of catchy tracks on it. Plus, it brought guitar solos back to the radio, as a kid the only time I'd heard them was on my Dad's old Queen records on the odd occasion. The band are back after Justin left in 2006 and they've returned with a track titled "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" and an animated video to boot. The band are working on more new material and lining up dates in the US and in the UK but for now, just enjoy the video via Rolling Stone.
