Amstell and Mills will be joined by a list of inspiring figures from the plant-based and vegan worlds. They include vegan MP Kerry McCarthy, fitness YouTuber Hench Herbivore, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk, Dr. Neal Barnard, and Dr. Melanie Joy.

Event Founder Jordan Martin told Plant Based News: “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.
