Vegans, it’s time to celebrate! The ‘world’s biggest vegan camping festival’ is coming to the East Midlands, a great opportunity to tantalise those vegan tastebuds of yours.
Vegan Camp-Out is a vegan festival that has been established since 2016, where it began with just 400 festival goers and one small food vendors. Yet since taking off, gathered over 5000 visitors the previous year.
This year, the event is set to be bigger than ever.
Jordan Martin, organiser of the event, felt that there was a definite lack of social spots for vegans to go to, when interviewed by Leicester Live.
“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.
“And that’s what the camp-out is about. We’re expecting to have around 7000 people attend this year.
“There’s a whole host of food there for people to enjoy and there’s always a very friendly vibe if you just want to try the food or listen to some of the talks.”
The festival will be dedicated to having a wide selection of food and drink stalls that will include pizza, Indian food, kebabs, smoothies, juices and ice creams.
But whilst you’re munching on delicious vegan hotdogs, you can check out live music acts such as Akala, Shikari Sound System and Zak Abel.
Or if they don’t sound like your cup of peppermint tea, have a nosy at the ‘Vegan Activism Stage’ which will include important talks from activists such as Earthling Ed, Erin Janus and James Aspey.
Entry will be at 2pm on Friday 30 August. The festival will end 2pm Sunday, which you need to have left by. Tickets will cost £45 for the entire weekend.
