Hungry lets eat

Festival Crowd Header
A guide on festival food. 
 
Its probably obvious as to what sort of food outlets there will be at most festivals, but be warned there not all cheap and the selection is relatively the same wherever you go. This short guide will list some of the choices on offer and also some of the things you should take with you.
Here's a list of food commonly found at festivals :
 
•Burger vans
•Pasties
•Chinese
•Pizza
•Vegetarian options are available
•Deli's selling sandwiches/Falafels
•Plenty of refreshment stalls 
 
Price range for a meal usually ranges between £5-£7 for most stalls.
 
Most have food from different cultures and over the years the quality has got better but remember to always wash your hands before eating especially after you've visited the not so clean toilet area!
 
What's food should I take?
 
•Fruit (canned will last better))
•Peanuts ( a good source of energy)
•Breakfast bars
•Bread/rolls
•Sweets/crisps
•Frozen meat (will last a couple of days and can be cooked on an instant bbq) - Some events don't allow BBQ's so check before hand. 
•Rice/pasta (make up some dishes and take with you)
•Super noodles/pot noodles
•Big bottle of water (can refill)
 
These are just a few of the things that will give you energy and are great snack foods to take with you, remember to check if you can take a gas stove into the festival as many are changing there rules as it can be dangerous, you wouldn't want to spend out on food and not be able to cook it!
