ORGANISERS of Y Not festival are calling for support from loyal fans after being nominated for a whole host of accolades at the upcoming UK Festival Awards.

The Dales music event has been nominated for Best Small Festival, Best Grass Roots Festival, Best Toilets and Y Not darling, Jake Bugg, is up for Best Breakthrough Act.

Ralph Broadbent, Y Not organiser, said: “The awards are a massive deal for us as picking up accolades like this raises the profile of the festival – and the area – immensely.”

Last year the festival scooped awards for Best Grass Roots Festival and Best Toilets.

Ralph said: “I would really like to urge people to spare 30 seconds to vote for us.”

The voting deadline is October 29 and people who wish to show support should visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/ukfa2012. The awards ceremony is held on December 3.
