This year’s much-anticipated Vegan Camp Out 2022 is nearing closer. The multi-day camping festival, said to be the largest of its kind, has already drawn in thousands of event-goers with its star-studded line-up of performers, chefs, entrepreneurs, and activists. Now, attendees have something else to look forward to: the 60 food vendors set to feature at the event, making it the largest offering of plant-based food in UK festival history.
With 10,000 (and counting) tickets already sold, Vegan Camp Out is set to wow masses of vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, and those who just love great-tasting food.
“We’re so excited to announce our biggest food line-up for Vegan Camp Out yet. Sixty food vendors confirmed – making it the biggest selection of vegan food on offer in UK history!” commented Vegan Camp Out founder Jordan Martin.
“Attendees can expect everything from Chinese, Indian, fish and chips, sushi, Filipino, Indonesian, raw, burgers, pizza, vegan chicken, hot dogs, Caribbean, donuts, ice cream, churros, and much much more! So foodies, have your wallet at the ready!”
Vegan Camp Out food options
Indeed, hungry festival-goers won’t be without choices at Vegan Camp Out 2022.
Purezza – voted the UK’s Best Vegan Restaurant by abillion in 2021 – will be serving up slices of its iconic plant-based pizza at the event. And Unity Diner, London’s largest vegan diner and cocktail bar, will make an appearance too. The diner, founded in 2018, is also a non-profit, funneling its earnings into various animal rights causes, including its very own farm animal sanctuary, which it established in 2020.
Burger-lovers at the festival will be in luck, with the likes of Halo Burger, Wholesome Junkies, and Frost Burgers setting up shop. Meanwhile, Chickenish and HUNS will be plating up meat-free chicken; and Eat of Eden, Jam Delish, Eat Some Ting, and Livity Plant Based Cuisine will be offering vegan Carribean cuisine.
Plant-based sushi, Ethiopian, Indian, Indonesian, Chinese, hot dogs, fish and chips, hog roast, street food, Southern American-style barbeque, and kebabs, to name a few, will also be available.
Sweet tooths need not be disappointed, with Project D, Booja-Booja, Conscious Candy Co, DÁPPA, and Doughnotts – among many others – serving ice cream, sweets, donuts, pancakes, coffee, and churros.
