The tenth annual Y Not Festival is fast approaching, when the hills, or more appropriately the Peaks, will be alive with the sound of indie, rock and pop.

This year’s festival runs at Pikehall, near Matlock, from July 31 to August 2.

Snoop Dogg, Primal Scream and Basement Jaxx are to headline Y Not’s 10th anniversary year.

Super Furry Animals, Public Service Broadcasting, Deaf Havana and many more are also lined up to play, as well as Ocean Colour Scene and Johnny Marr.

Elsewhere on the line up promoters, have secured sets from a fine mix of guitar slingers, from the delicate and twee to swaggering screamers. Irish rock outfit The Strypes, singer-songwriter Rhodes and former Feeder front-man Grant Nicholas are all headed for Y Not.

The Kerrang!-approved Arcane Roots, blues-tinged Rag N Bone Man along with alt pop husband and wife duo Summer Camp and Jaws make for yet more musical delights on offer. Walking On Cars, a band that topped the Irish iTunes chart with their debut single, Blossom’s psyche-pop and a mix of hardcore, post and math rock from Black Peaks form yet more of Y Not’s sonic bounty.
