Festivals…veggie friendly?

First off…apologies I haven’t posted for a while. Life has been a little hectic! New posts will be coming really soon.

In the past few years I have been to a number of festivals in the UK and mainland Europe and have noticed a gradual change from the grotty burger wagons that once flooded the sites.

Every festival I have been to have had at least some vegetarian food and, for the most part, they have served a decent range of both healthy and tasty vegetarian bites.

Not only this but a lot of festivals now have stalls that will have vegan food for sale (albeit hardly in abundance).

The best festival I have been to for a range of veggie grub was Primavera Sound in Barcelona and you could pick up falafel, salads and great whole foods that not only taste amazing but provide the nutrients you need to get through the rigours of day-to-day festival life at a reasonable price.

All of this is a far cry from the ‘mystery meat’ stalls which, don’t get me wrong, do still exist but are now being caught up on by food that won’t leave you braving the even worse side of festivals constantly…

On that note, any non-vegetarians may want to give veggie food a go at festivals to try to avoid the ‘festival tummy’. Who knows, you may not be disappointed!

Let me know whether you agree or whether you have had a shocking experience of festival food.

  1. Belladrum festival in the Scottish Highlands always has a high veggie (& local food) content. It’s also good to see Morrissey insisting on meat-free catering when he performs now. I saw him recently and loved his band’s “f*** fur” t-shirts.
