Also celebrating a significant year, Ocean Colour Scene are announced for Y Not festival just weeks after the completion of their 25th anniversary tour.

The Moseley-formed quartet come armed with belters like The Day We Caught the Train and many more from a ten-album back catalogue. Godlike Genius, as dubbed by NME, Johnny Marr is next to step up to the plate.

The former Smiths’ guitarist and solo artist in his own right garners the utmost respect from music fans who flock to his iconic sound.

Elsewhere amongst additions are Florida’s ska punkers Less Than Jake, who will be on hand to keep crowds jumping.

Rock of widescreen proportions will come courtesy of Augustines, post-hardcore quartet Don Broco and alternative metal outfit Young Guns.

Solo Dancing singer Indiana serves up sleek electropop whilst for those looking for something completely different, Y Not welcomes comedy folk outfit The Lancashire Hotpots.

Diversity continues across Y Not’s stages with Japanese psychedelic noise wielders Bo Ningen, alt R&B singer and Games of Thrones actor Raleigh Ritchie and rap/metal fusers Hacktivist.

Mancunian grunge band Nine Black Alps and screaming mathcore specialists Rolo Tomassi are set to keep things loud.

Winner of Best Small Festival at the 2012 UK Festival Awards, Y Not returns in 2015 to celebrate in style. Tickets priced at £89.50 are available from
