Eats, Treats & Beats
With the ever-growing popularity of street food, this year the Sheffield Food Fest has created the Eats, Treats and Beats village, combining a diverse range of food outlets with live music, award-winning craft beer, coffee and plenty of prosecco to boot.
Setting up camp at the top of Fargate from Friday 26 May 6pm-11pm and then 11am-11pm on both Saturday and Sunday and 11am-6pm on the Bank Holiday Monday, the stretch tent will house a live stage with rustic seating and tables where you can enjoy a tipple from their fully stocked bar, sponsored by Sentinel and Thornbridge breweries.
Outside, an al fresco seating area will be surrounded by some of the best street food in the industry, including Canadian delicacy poutine specialists The Gravy Train, Neapolitan pizza masters Proove, jerk chicken aficionados Yabba Caribbean and badass burgers from Cow Boys.
Music over the weekend will be sponsored by Plug, who are going all out bringing the best local live talent and DJs from their hugely successful club nights. As well as a live set from this year’s Exposed Awards Best Unsigned Artist Caroline Francess, Propaganda will be channelling 90s Britpop and indie classics on the Friday. Delve Deeper and Nox DJs will provide deep house, funk and disco at Plug, carrying over into the official after-party which will keep on going ‘til the wee hours. Warming up for the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club later on in the evening at Plug, pop by the village for a soulful Sunday with DJ Andy H and a live set from Otis Mensah, while the Monday will see the fest go back to the ‘80s as retro club night Relax takes up residence.
