Vegan Camp Out 2021
The world's biggest vegan festival sees another successful year
Did you manage to make it to Vegan Camp Out this year? If you didn't, don't fret, as we are here to give you the low-down on all the festival's happenings. The plant-powered get-together, which took place across the weekend 20th-22nd August, had 12,000 people in attendance, making it the biggest vegan camping event in world history!
People came from all over the UK (and many from countries abroad, which allowed travel) for three days of talks, live music, workshops, yoga/meditation classes and, of course, the UK's best vegan food selection.
Who was there?
Despite only having seven weeks after the official government 'green light' due to COVID-19 restrictions, festival organisers worked night and day to pull off the event in time. Attendees were lucky enough to enjoy a line-up of notable names, including comedian Russell Brand, plant-based food duo BOSH!, naturalist and presenter Chris Packham, animal rights activist Joey Carbstrong, Viva!'s Juliet Gellatley, grime artist P Money, reggae act and poet Benjamin Zephaniah, folk band Mobius Loop and many others across four stages.
What could you eat?
A whopping 43 food vendors got guests' taste buds tingling, including Purezza (purezza.co.uk), Unity Diner (unitydiner.co.uk), What the Pitta (whatthepitta.com), Dappa (getdappa.com), Wholesome Junkies (wholesomejunkies.co.uk), Halo Burger (haloburger.co.uk), One Planet Pizza (oneplanetpizza.com), Eat of Eden (eatofeden.co.uk), PickyWops (pickywops.com), Booja Booja (boojabooja.com) and many more!

What was the aftermath like?
Festivals are well known for leaving a catastrophic amount of rubbish on the fields on which they are held (check out the comparison between the aftermath of Vegan Camp Out and Leeds Festival on @vegancampout Instagram), but not Vegan Camp Out.
The festival arena was left in an almost spotless condition, thanks to the considerate manner of eco-conscious vegan attendees and dedicated staff.
Upon leaving, numerous attendees reported being sad to leave and wished the event hadn't come to an end so soon - but they were very happy to learn that Vegan Camp Out 2022 is being made a whole day/night longer!
