Yup, I'm veggie and the food is always great. Not really had to think about vegan but I think there should be some.

Oh and if you're camping, the campsite cafe is not great for veggie stuff so you might want to bring your own breakfast if you can. They do do a veggie breakfast (which I think is just the meat breakfast without the meat) and other stuff so there is stuff to eat but it's not that great. We usually have breakfast there on the Monday to avoid having to wash up while we're packing up with a hangover but cook our own breakfast the rest of the weekend.

We'll have some veggie and vegan options again. It's a pretty small festival, so only a few caterers, but we do try.

Gopals will be back again, and they sell vegan curries. There's also a cafe that sells both vegan and veggie options, including hot meals and rolls. We'll have a burrito stand with a veggie option and a new pizza van with a veggie option. And there's Carnival of Food, which is hot dogs and burgers etc - it's been coming for 8 years but I can't remember if it does veggie burgers or anything?

Also, you're welcome to bring your own food and drink on site, just no alcohol please (a license restriction).

Hi - sorry to derail the conversation (no pun intended, I promise) but seeing as this thread was looking lively I just wanted to put out a feeler for anyone driving up from London who might be up for giving me a lift?

Train tickets up are looking pretty steep and so if there's anyone looking to cut down on petrol costs or help save the planet do let me know!

Ta, really looking forward to my first Indietracks! (long time compilation listener, first time attendee...)

Does anyone know if there will be a timetable of trains to Swanwick in advance, or is it going to be just a case of turning up at Butterley a bit before the start time and hoping for the best? I think I get confused about this every year. I do normally manage to get there though, so maybe it's not worth worrying about (I did have to walk it once and got covered in mud, mind you).

Can the first person there tweet a picture of the sign with times on it please? Think some people have done this in the past and it's pretty handy.

I just noticed on the main Anorak page the description under this forum still says "26-28 July 2013". I don't know if anyone feels like updating that.
