The food situation at festivals used to be dire but thankfully there are now more options, even for vegan folks.

And now theres a whole festival dedicated to all things plant-based.

Well, the event, Vegan Camp-out, has been around since 2016 but its only getting bigger and badder (in a good way).

Organisers have said its the worlds largest vegan camping festival. So were definitely on board.

Last years festivities saw a line-up of celebs which included Simon Amstell, JME, Macka B, Neal Barnard, Melanie Joy, Heather Mills.

This year, you can expect all the great stuff plus delicious new plant-based foods at the event happening in Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire.

What a time to be alive.

Organiser Jordan Martin, from Derby, started the whole thing three years ago in a field, attended by 400 people.



He said there were no social spots for vegans to hang out.

Since then the event has taken off, having amassed 5,000 guests last year.

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, he told Leicestershire Live.

And thats what the camp-out is about. Were expecting to have around 7000 people attend this year.
