Officer's thanks to all those who helped make Y Not Festival a success
Main article content
Thousands of people headed to Derbyshire for the annual Y Not Festival this summer enjoying headline sets from artists like Royal Blood and Kasabian.
We worked in partnership with the organisers, security teams and other agencies in the lead up to, during and after the event held in Pikehall in July to help ensure festivalgoers had a safe and enjoyable time throughout.
Over the course of the festival whilst the crowd were being entertained by artists including The Charlatans and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, we were there in the background engaging with attendees and offering advice and support when needed.
Uniformed officers patrolled the site supported by our drugs experts, drones pilots and licensing officers, with our mobile police station also in attendance to give people the opportunity to come and see us and report any issues. Pleasingly, reported incidents and crimes were low again this year for an event of this size and nature.
Superintendent Tracy Lewis, Police Commander for the festival, said: “I have been involved with this event for many years and yet again, it was a pleasure to see everyone having a great time in such a beautiful part of our county.
“Thank you to customers, the local community, Y Not organisers, partners and my police colleagues for making this year’s event a great success”.
