Ticket holders demand refunds from Y Not Festival after weather related cancellation
Derbyshire’s Y Not Festival is the latest event to be embroiled in controvery, the festival’s final day of production, Sunday, cancelled after heavy rain and wind created conditions far from conducive for the festival’s conclusion. The event’s cancellation resulted in the according cancellation of a myriad of sets, leading attendees to demand refunds on social media platforms. Other festival goers lamented the muddy state of the festival grounds, the muck allegedly causing damage to some ticket holders’ vehicles, while making others abandon their vehicle altogether, to be fetched at a later date.
Campers additionally complained of the festival’s failure to purchase and lay wood chips to alleviate the mud issue after the first night of rain. Security was another area bemoaned by festival attendees, with security being described as minimal, what with many tents being robbed during the weekend. As those who purchased tickets to the Y Not Festival echo across social media platforms, the festival’s name might be better rephrased as “Y Bother.”
