The event, which sees people from all around the world come together to spend two nights camping together, will feature inspiring figures from the plant-based and vegan worlds.

The list of inspiring advocates includes vegan MP Kerry McCarthy, fitness YouTuber Hench Herbivore, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, and Reggae star Macka B among others.


Event Founder Jordan Martin told PBN: “The Vegan Camp Out is the UK’s largest outdoor vegan festival where thousands of people from all around the world come together to spend two nights camping together, with some of the world’s biggest names in animal rights as guest speakers.”

Martin, who goes to lots of music festivals, added: “I realized there wasn’t a music-like camping festival for animal rights so thought it would be a good idea to start one up.”


Plant Based News is the media partner for the event which will take place on August 17-19 at Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire.
