You know that we would never, ever encourage anything bad: so it would follow that what we're about to endorse is something that is very, very good. Street Feastival returns to Kelvingrove Park, to once again showcase the gastronomical and not-so-gastronomical treats of fair Glasgow: in other words, we're in for a rather raucous roster of music, street food, crafty beverages and sweet refreshment in a charming outdoor setting. Told you it was good.
A pop up experience like no other, Street Feastival takes place as part of Glasgow's West End Festival, to encourage both collaboration and celebration across communities: the food offering reflects the melting pot of culture that has come to represent Glasgow, as well as the vibrant food and drink scene that is held up by culinary institutions and propelled by those sparky new guys. Expect to chow down on serious grub from the likes of Kimchi Cult, The Hanoi Bike Shop, Stravaigin, Pure Raj, Big Apple Hot Dogs and Food Soul. You thirsty little rabbits can also get your paws on a tipple or three from one of their speciality bars, which will open to serve cocktails, craft beers and ciders, wine and soft drinks. Delicious.
DJs showcase an eclectic music program, playing the best in reggae, soul, funk, disco, indie and house: this is a soundtrack to cater to every and all taste. Expect to hear music from the likes of Sunday Circus, David Barbarossa, Rebecca Vasmant, Racket Racket, Andrew Divine, Doug Harris (Boogaloo), Redux, Ewan Chambers.
Street Feastival takes place as part of the West End Festival and Glasgow Mela, a wider celebration of Glasgow's multicultural society. Street Feastival takes place in Kelvingrove Park (near the fountain) on Saturday 7th June and Sunday 8th June, between 12pm and 8pm. Entry is free for all.
