London’s 1st of it’s kind Vegan Lifestyle Festival bringing live music performances, DJs and Vegan food to a newly built urban beach in a London Olympic venue.
VeeLyfe Festival will play host to a mix of RnB, Hip Hop, Afro Beats and House at London’s only urban beach location on Saturday 27 th July.
The first music festival of its kind every detail has been thought out to provide a celebration of the latest live talent while putting ‘green’ back in to the festival scene by promoting environmentally practices.
From the UK’s largest solar panel staging to the eco toilets and biodegradable cups and food trays even the food will be 100% vegan inspired with street stalls celebrating plant-based food from around the world.
With over 23,500 tonnes of waste estimated to be generated every year by festivals and the huge impact on the environment each event brings VeeLyfe is aiming to showcase a more sustainable approach to live music events.
Vegan host Claira Hermet, from Radio 4 and the resident DJ on BBC Radio London’s The Scene – celebrating emerging talent, will lead the show with acts including UK grime sensation Stormzy’s sister Rachel Anson, Gorgon City lead vocalist Josh Barry, House of Grae and DJ Melody Kane who has appeared at the MOBO awards and is the only resident DJ for urban media network SBTV as well as a host of other stations.
Held at Lee Valley White Water Centre, which was built as part of the 2012 Olympic Games, the urban location makes it easily accessible with festival goers being urged to use public transport to cut down on carbon emissions.
Doors open at 12pm, with last entry at 5pm. Tickets are on sale priced from £20 with more information available at www.veelyfe.com.
