If you live in the UK, chances are fairly high that you’ve got some sort of core memory associated with being at a festival. Going to a muddy field with your mates and listening to loud music is one of those British rites of passage that just about everyone has experienced at some point in their life. Sometimes those memories are warm and fuzzy, sometimes they’re… more damp and miserable.
I’ll never forget the time my girlfriend told me that she saw Tame Impala at Glastonbury in 2019 instead of catching Stormzy’s now-iconic performance. Making mistakes is sort of what festivals are all about. But festivals aren’t just about drinking too much and always, inevitably seeing Horse Meat Disco. Some festivals are dedicated to eating delicious food and drink and are an altogether more cultured affair. From Taste of London to Big Feastival, the UK is lucky enough to play host to a range of great food and drink festivals that are worth exploring. Festivals where you’re guaranteed to come out with fond memories of delicious burgers and fiery street food.
These are some of the UK’s very best food and drink festivals that you need to get yourself to this summer.
