Y Not? Y?

It might not be on quite the same scale as Fyre, but it sounds as though the aborted Y Not Festival in Derbyshire was similarly shambolic. The organisers - who are also responsible for Truck these days - have cited the weather, which has admittedly been challenging, as the reason for cancelling the final day. But other much larger festivals (Glastonbury, in particular) regularly go ahead in swamp-like conditions, and the reaction to the announcement of the cancellation on Twitter suggests a lack of organisation, infrastructure and preparedness might be to blame.
