In 2016 organisers of the popular festival Shambala took the bold step of removing meat and fish from the festival menu, for both the public and festival staff.
The decision was an environmental one and was warmly embraced by festival goers. A post-event survey showed 77% of respondents wanted to keep Shambala meat and fish free. And 33% reported that they continued to reduce meat and fish consumption after the festival was over.
Shambala is committed to continuing the debate this year and have an excellent FAQ page that explores many issues about sustainable food. The 2017 festival runs from 24-27 August.
