The food situation at festivals used to be dire but thankfully there are now more options, even for vegan folks.
And now there’s a whole festival dedicated to all things plant-based.
Well, the event, Vegan Camp-out, has been around since 2016 but it’s only getting bigger and badder (in a good way).
Organisers have said it’s ‘the world’s largest vegan camping festival’. So we’re definitely on board.
Last year’s festivities saw a line-up of celebs which included Simon Amstell, JME, Macka B, Neal Barnard, Melanie Joy, Heather Mills.
This year, you can expect all the great stuff plus delicious new plant-based foods at the event happening in Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire.
What a time to be alive.
Organiser Jordan Martin, from Derby, started the whole thing three years ago in a field, attended by 400 people.
He said there were no social spots for vegans to hang out.
Since then the event has taken off, having amassed 5,000 guests last year.
‘I found there were these events where you pay £3 and try the food but no event that really saw like-minded vegans get together,’ he told Leicestershire Live.
‘And that’s what the camp-out is about. We’re expecting to have around 7000 people attend this year.’
Lucky festival-goers can expect to see the genius that is Akala as well as musicians like Zak Abel and Shikari Sound System.
There’ll be plenty of fun things to do as well as informative talks including a ‘Vegan Activism Stage’ which will feature talks from Earthling Ed, James Aspey and Erin Janus.
The meat and dairy-free goodness options include pizza, kebab, smoothies, juices, Indian food and ice cream.
Doors will open at 2 pm on Friday 30 August and tickets cost £45 for the entire weekend.
