Veg Saves The Day

Love Saves The Day isn’t the only festival happening this weekend…

If you’re more into broccoli than Bonobo or Bashmore, chances are this weekend’s VegFest is right up your street.

Back celebrating its 10th anniversary, VegFest celebrates all things veggie and vegan in supposedly the biggest vegetarian event anywhere in the world.

More than enough avocados to go round

Things didn’t start brilliantly for the festival on Friday night with Bristol covered by the kind of ominous grey skies which wouldn’t be out of place at Glastonbury.

With rain and strong winds battering the main stage, headliners Caravan Palace took to the stage for one of the most remarkable performances you might ever see. Despite their equipment faltering and their umbrellas being blown away the band battled the conditions brilliantly to get everyone moving.

Organisers must have been relieved when Saturday began with sunny, clear skies and hundreds of punters streamed into the site to enjoy the selection of food available at the various stalls.

Sunburn, Pimms and some stand-out musical performances made for an ideal Bank Holiday, far away from the drugged-up masses dancing to Rudimental on the other side of town.

Tonight’s headline act Happy Mondays will doubtlessly be grateful for the improved weather which looks set to last until tomorrow when the festival comes to an end. Day tickets are still available and cost just £2 but those hoping to enjoy the evening entertainment will be charged the slightly higher fee of £5.
