Six best festival food dishes August 21 2018

We’re in the middle of one of the best summers on record, so what else can we Brits do other than get out into the festival fields, cider in hand, listen to some great music and eat some top festival food? Si Willis from @consumingcouple runs you through his picks for summer festival eats!

Sticky Spicy Beef Roti from Brother Thai

Paired with Brothers Coconut & Lime Cider
A long time favourite and only a few festival appearances from this Brother from a Thai mother, so when he’s trading at one you better get in line early as they have quite the following. Specialising in Thai style roti’s bursting with flavour, you’ll be more than satisfied with their British Street Food award winning vegan jackfruit & shiitake roti but the go-to has to be the sticky spicy beef paired with a Brothers Coconut & Lime, as this drink has similar base flavours as a lot of Thai food whilst cooling down that spiciness just a little.

*Top tip - mix it up with the off menu ‘Ladyboy’ a mix of the beef & chicken rotis!

Vegan Burrito from Happy Maki

Paired with Brothers Strawberry & Kiwi Cider
You know when someone says they had ‘vegan food that didn’t taste like vegan food’? That’s the reaction when folks eat over at Happy Maki. Sublime flavours, cool food truck and Instagrammable dishes. Honestly, I’ve had food from them a couple of times and its always been spot on, freshly rolled and fresher tasting. Pair the sweet potato, roasted coconut and avocado burrito with the sweetness of Brothers Strawberry & Kiwi cider.

Churros & Melted Chocolate from Churros Amigos

Paired with Brothers Rhubarb & Custard Cider
I don’t want to oversimplify this, but a churro is deep fried dough coated in sugar and dipped in melted Belgian chocolate. Usually a dessert, at a festival it is acceptable to eat at any time of the day for any reason; post legendary band, pre heavy session, during the battle out of a hangover. Pair this with a Brothers Rhubarb & Custard cider for that total sweet shop childhood nostalgia. This will be the king of pairings for those with a sweet tooth.

Moo Blue Pie from Pieminister

Paired with Brothers Apple Cider
A traditional festival food dish deserves a traditional cider. Smashing down a British steak and stilton pie topped with buttery mash & mushy peas, paired with a good ol’ Somerset cider = winning at festivals (and curing that hangover).

Sakana Burger from Seadog

Paired with Brothers Wild Fruit Cider
OG’s in the festival and street food game, Beth and Jim have been dishing out world inspired seafood at some of the top events in the country for longer than some traders have even been in the kitchen. They’ve got three main menu items that could have easily made this list; the seafood laksa- coconut broth, noodles, smoked mackerel, the seaside popcorn-crispy fried mussels and cockles, but just just beating out these two is the Sakana burger- freshly battered white fish on a fresh roll with pickled slaw, Cornish seaweed and sweet soy. Pair this with Brothers Wild Fruit cider for the most flavourful feed in the festival fields!!

Fried Chicken Sandwich from Consuming Couple

Paired with Brothers Festival Pear Cider
We don’t only talk about good eats, we try and make them too! Myself and my partner Lauren have been running Lola’s Wings for the past four years trading at some big events like the NFL London, Grillstock and Parklife as well as our smaller festival favourites like Fieldview Festival. Our Buffalo wings are always a favourite but you’ve got to try our new festival special fried chicken burger and…. go on, pair that crunchy juicy buttermilk chicken thigh with a Festival strength Pear!

Festival Fashion Trends June 11 2018

It’s the Summer which can only mean one thing… our Instagram feeds are full of Festival fashion! So we thought we’d give you the low down some of the seasons hottest trends.


The glitter looks that are popping up are absolutely stunning, from ultimate glitter eyes to bums and boobs, there are no sparkle limits! As well as being a makeup trend glitter is also being used as clothing by covering certain body parts. Great for us but not always good for the environment. That’s why it is important to consider where you purchase your glitter from. Check out the awesome glitter sets at Eco Glitter Fun for more information.

We aren’t talking about the hair style here, we are talking fringed clothing. This fashion style has been creeping in for the last few years and has been reintroduced with tassels. From dresses to boots the fringe has been put on everything and we love it.

Sheer clothing

Don’t feel brave enough to show off all the flesh this summer? Then sheer clothing is your best friend. Be as bold and brave with the colours as you like with sheer skirts coming in all sorts of colours and patterns.

Punk rocker

Punk Rock chic is back for 2018, but with a new modern twist. Get your Doc Martens on and fill your festival wardrobe with leather, chokers, chains and skin-tight jeans. Don’t forget the heavy eyeliner and bold lips too!

Face veils

Veils were back on the catwalk at London Fashion Week this year. Traditionally worn by a bride on their wedding day a face veil is a different accessory to wear to a festival. To be honest we quite like the sound of hiding our hungover tired faces with a pretty bit of material!
