VegFest Bristol 2012: Day 1

vegfest bristol 2012 crowd

The world's biggest vegan festival got underway today at Bristol (UK) with crowds gathering in the early summer heat for 3 days of music, food and revelry. The event kicked off at 2pm this afternoon and saw festival goers entertained by live bands on the harbourside from afternoon until evening. The weekend is headlined by Finley Quaye tomorrow night (Saturday, 7:30pm). The unexpected May sunshine ensured everyone was in high spirits, although shade was in short supply in the open amphitheatre at Waterfront Square.

Friday visitors got a chance to see the dozens of stalls in the two giant marquees and in the waterfront square before the crush of the Saturday crowds.
