Is food the new rock 'n' roll? Alex James of indie kings Blur seems to think so, if his interest in making cheese is anything to go by. Organised by James and ever-chirpy TV chef Jamie Oliver, this family friendly event mixes up foodie fanaticism and music. Cooking demos, markets and pop-up restaurants take care of the food side, but the music line-up is also very impressive, with R&B singer Kelis (whose new album, 'Food', is sure to go down well here), globe-conquering DJ Fatboy Slim, funk and soul selector Norman Jay, and fresh-faced jazz fave Jamie Cullum topping the bill. If music be the food of love, fill your face with pulled pork sliders and then see if you can manage to wobble over to the dancefloor.
