Young British Foodies to be at Bestival

Music lovers heading to the Isle of Wight later this year to go to Bestival are in for a treat as the Young British Foodies (YBF) are set to be in attendance at the event.

The festival will be hosting a special tent for the group, which gives ticketholders the chance to sample the food of some of the most exciting up-and-coming cooks in the UK.

A tent will be laid out with the YBF representatives placed around the edge of the space, with hungry festival-goers encouraged to pick and choose from the gourmet dishes on offer and sit in the middle with their friends and others at the event.

"There will be some of the country’s best chefs, street food vendors, bakers, distillers and mixologists, coffee roasters and baristas all under one roof," highlighted the organisers of Bestival on the Isle of Wight, so those who are heading to the island for the bash this September will have plenty to choose from if they spend some time at the YBF venue.

A nationwide search is currently being run by the YBF in order to uncover some of the best young talent in the country and the winner of the competition - who is set to be announced later in the month - will be cooking exclusively at Bestival and its sister festival Camp Bestival under the terms of the agreement between the curators and the organisers at YBF.

"Stalls will include a Lily Vanilli Bakery and a Chase Distillery, with many more to be announced once the YBF judging comes to a close," added a statement from Bestival, which noted there will also be food-themed cabaret performances taking place in the YBF tent over the weekend.

Bestival is being headlined by Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros and is held at Robin Hill Country Park from September 6th to 9th.
