You may already know that this year we headed to Vegan Camp Out to share our green mission with thousands of festival goers and to tell them about our amazing vegan energy. To celebrate World Vegan Month, we wanted to remind you about our very special offer available to you if you join us or switch to our green vegan tariffs - you could get your hands on a ticket to Vegan Camp Out 2024.
Now you may be thinking why should I go to a vegan festival, is it for me? We’ve put together five amazing reasons why it should be on your calendar for next year. Trust us – it was hard to limit it down to five reasons!
1.It’s a vegan festival!
Yes, that’s right – a vegan festival. Vegan Camp Out is the world’s largest vegan camping festival. The event includes talks, live music, afterparties, yoga/meditation classes, workshops and the best vegan food. This isn’t your average festival and is one not to be missed.
2.Interesting talks from fascinating people
Not only is there great music across the weekend, but there are also a lot of really interesting talks on veganism and sustainability. Last year they hosted talks such as “How to be a voice for the animals” by Viva! and “The plant-based transition of education” by The Vegan Society - both fantastic friends and partners of Ecotricity!
We even hosted our own talk called “Hidden Ingredients – how far do we look?”, alongside Henry and Ian from BOSH!, Juilet Gellatley from Viva! and our Chief Growth Officer, Paul Sands.
You can watch the full talk below.
In 2024, they’re welcoming Dr. Michael Greger, Kate Nash and Lee Mack - plus many more. You can see the line-up here.
3.The great food
Festivals are known for being all about the music, but you can’t beat the food either. At Vegan Camp Out there is such a massive selection of tasty vegan food – you’ll be spoilt for choice. Last year, they had 60 vendors which made it the largest selection of vegan food in UK history.
There are also gluten free and raw options available too.
There really is something for everyone. Members of the Eco Team proudly sampled a lot of the food this year, and let’s just say we were never hungry.
4. The line-up
Over the years, the Vegan Camp Out line-up has never disappointed. Previously speakers and artists included Benjamin Zephaniah, Simon Amstell, Chris Packham and many more. You can see more here.
Last year they pulled out all the stops with a fantastic line-up including Romesh Ranganathan, Sam Ryder and Henry and Ian from BOSH!. With DJ sets and live music, the line-up kept the crowds very entertained throughout the weekend.
5.You can now get a half-price ticket
Like we mentioned earlier if you switch to Ecotricity, you can get a half-price ticket to Vegan Camp Out 2024. This fantastic offer is available to new customers joining Ecotricity and also existing customers who switch to our green vegan tariffs.
We can’t wait to see you there next year!
Ecotricity Explains – What is battery storage?
Getting to 100% renewables isn’t only about building more windmills, sun mills and gasmills. That’s why we’re also building and innovating in the field of energy storage.
