Vegan food at hardcore festival IEPERFEST, Ypres

Ieperfest is a 3-day hardcore music festival, just outside Ypres (Ieper, 75km from Bruges, Belgium). Since day one, more than 20 years ago, all the food at Ieperfest isย vegan! It was two years ago that we went to Ieperfest (see our blogpost here), and it was a wet edition in 2014.ย This time, it was a beautifulย Summer weekend, and we went again one afternoon to try out the vegan goodies and enjoy the atmosphere. We tried to tasteย something from each foodstall, but by the end of the afternoon were too stuffed to accomplish that plan ๐Ÿ˜‰ Payment for food and drinks was with tokens: we paid 66 euros for 30 tokens in total. Our plan was to startย our food trip with the Flemish stew with seitan and potatoes from the Ieperfest Hardcore Foodstall, but it was announced it was only available from 5PM onwards. Bummer! Soย we startedย withย a Dutch weedburger and some ‘Wish ‘n Chips’, that latter being a new ‘algae’ based dish from TDW. Nice! Here’s an overview of the food and drinks we had:   …

Our visit to Fair Festival at DOK Gent

Two weeks ago, September 5 2015,ย there was festival on the site of DOK (former harbour grounds) in Ghent. Fair festival is announced as “the place where you can find honest and green products“. It is not a vegan festival like the one we went to a couple of weeks prior in Ghent (see our reviewย here), but since it was with free entrance andย there was a vegan BBQ at noon (for subscribers only, 16โ‚ฌ, made by restaurant Avalon), we decided to go take a look! We arrived at about noon, and after taking a quick first look at the stalls, we went to the BBQ. This was only for people who had subscribedย and paid beforehand: 16โ‚ฌpp. The food was very nice, but we were a little bit underwhelmed. There were plenty of vegetables and things like potato salad and rice, but hardly any real ‘barbecued’ things. There was a sate with chunks of seitan, bbqed mushroom, grilled corn and marinated tofu, but even these didn’t really taste barbecued (maybe they didn’t get the time to really …

Yummie food @Vegan music festival Ieperfest

Ieperfest is a 3-day hardcore music festival, just outside Ypres (Ieper, 75km from Bruges, Belgium). Since day one, more than 20 years ago, all the food at Ieperfest isย vegan! So we went to check it out on day1! To listen to some bands (a trip down memory lane for one of us!), hang out, relax, and get a general impression of the atmosphere. Butย especially to taste the vegan food!ย It’s pretty rare to find vegan food at a music festical, so toย have all catering fully vegan (and most of it organic too) is really extraordinary! Not having to ask whether the fries are baked in vegetable oil, being able to order food withoutย worryingย aboutย hidden ingredients! What a relief! And plenty of choice too! Vegan food catering at Ieperfest: This is what we ateย at Ieperfest: For refreshments,ย there’s of course plenty of beer available, but it’s nice you can also drink organic apple or orange juice (2โ‚ฌ). And Koek & Zopie offers a variety of organic coffees. Unfortunately, the rain came pooring down several times, turning the festival grounds …
