Robin S, Danny Rampling, Rozalla and Dub Pistols headline 15th annual vegan festival on Bristol Harbourside

Robin S, Danny Rampling, Rozalla and Dub Pistols headline 15th annual vegan festival on Bristol Harbourside

Now in its 15th year, VegfestUK Bristol is set to celebrate with a massive House Party on Saturday May 20th 2017. Billed as the “Show Me Love” party, and headlined with a live set from Robin S, along with DJ Danny Rampling, and Rozalla (Everybody’s Free), the event harks back to the heady days of rave music from the early 90’s….and then on Sunday, Dub Pistols headline alongside South African reggae acts ZionRuts and local Bristol-based hip-hop crew The Scribes.

 

 

“Saturday is definitely what you might call a house party with an extra sprinkling of quattro formaggio with grated mozzarella and some melted ‘Sheese’ – all vegan of course,” say VegfestUK organisers. “Danny Rampling is of course a household name for many following his long-time stints on Radio 1, and we’re particularly thrilled to welcome Robin S from the USA who many will remember for her iconic multimillion-selling hit ‘Show Me Love’. Likewise, Rozalla, who had a huge hit with ‘Everybody’s Free’ will be performing live. And if that wasn’t enough, we also have Nicky Holloway, the original house promoter from the Shoom days of the mid-80’s, which was at the very heart of original house music as we know it today.”

 

 

“The Sunday lineup has a traditional reggae / hip-hop / dub feel to it, with Dub Pistols headlining and ZionRuts from South Africa supporting alongside local Bristol hip-hop talents The Scribes. We will be expecting capacity crowds on both days.”

Celebration of Animal Aid’s 40th anniversary

The ‘Show Me Love’ party on Saturday evening is hosted by Animal Aid in celebration of their 40th anniversary this year. Animal Aid is a tremendously fantastic animal rights group in the UK who are fighting for justice for animals through their excellent campaign work. To find out more about Animal Aid, visit their website www.animalaid.org.uk . The party is also the launch of the Vegan Festival of Britain 2017  - see http://veganfestivalofbritain.org.uk/  

Live Acts Stage – a new addition to the evening event

In addition to the Main Stage which plays host to the aforementioned headliners, there will be a second Live Acts Stage with musicians taking the stage with their heart-warming sets. The musicians gracing the Live Acts Stage include Vegfest regulars Mobius Loop, local country / chamber pop group Furlined and cosmic psycho rockabilly band The Kings of Outer Space on Saturday, followed by folk bands The Skimmity Hitchers and Bert’s Animal Band on Sunday.

Daytime features of the event

The focus of the event is on vegan food and information during the daytime part of the event (i.e. before 6pm on Saturday and before 5pm on Sunday). There are altogether 180 stalls including 5 bars and 15 caterers, talks on Easy Veganism, Light Veganism and Deep Veganism, Cookery Demos, a Cinema, Kids Cookery Classes, Live Acoustic Music from 2 stages, and a Small Circus Stage – what a marvellous celebration of veganism over the whole weekend!
