Bristol May 24, 25 and 26 at The Amphitheatre – BS1 5DB

The original Happy Mondays are on course to headline a 5,000 capacity outdoor gig in the heart of Bristol this May as they take centre stage at VegfestUK Bristol's tenth birthday party on Saturday May 25 2013, along with support from 808 State and The Farm, plus a DJ slot from Peter Hook (New Order/Joy Division).

Around 25,000 visitors are expected over the three day festival, many of them from out of town, and many of them experiencing the delights of 100% plant based food for the first time too - VegfestUK Bristol is the world's biggest veggie event and there are no animal products permitted at the event.

During the daytime (11am - 6pm Saturday and Sunday) visitors can expect a feast of different cuisine from across the globe, along with 125 stalls crammed with goodies including food, bodycare, clothes, fashion and accessories, and campaigns merchandise as well as information in abundance about the benefits of the plant based lifestyle, along with recipes, nutritional information, cookery demos, talks, a cinema and a host of entertainment including comedy hours, live music and performance.

Admission is £2 adults and £1 kids/claimants/OAP's during the daytime up to 6pm (pay on gate).

Then in the evenings the Main Stage takes over proceedings and some of the biggest headliners to ever grace an outdoor stage in Bristol take centre point and crank up the PA for some fantastic sessions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening.

Admission to the Friday and Saturday evening events is by advance ticket only - there are no tickets available on the gate. Tickets for Friday (Caravan Palace) are priced £15 + fees, and for Saturday (Happy Mondays, 808 State, The Farm, Peter Hook) its £25 + fees. Sunday (The Abyssinians, Macka B) admission is £5 after 6pm, pay on gate.
