Y Not Festival feat. University of Derby

We have teamed up with Derbyshire's Y Not music festival for an exciting partnership. This gives amazing new opportunities for our students through a range of paid internships, providing hands-on work experience at one of the country’s best indie music festivals.

Music and more

Y Not festival will return this year for the 14th time in Pikehall, Derbyshire, from 25-28 July 2019. The 2019 line-up is looking stronger than ever, with a unique mix of pop, indie and rock including; Foals, Elbow, Two Door Cinema Club, Franz Ferdinand, Wolf Alice and You Me at Six to name but a few.

This year, our partnership will provide three paid internship opportunities for our current students across marketing, tech and production. We will also be welcoming the Y Not festival management team to a range of Open Day and student taster events throughout the spring for inspiring talks and activities. In addition, the University is proud to present Club Malibu, providing an eclectic schedule of entertainment across festival weekend, situated in the heart of the popular Gold City.
