When? September 15-17 2017
What? Vegan music festival with a strong emphasis on fun
Where? The Parc de la Villette
School beckons and the holiday period is coming to a close, but ‘vegan pop festival’ Smmmile à la Villette, from September 15-17, is here to rescue us from those back-to-work blues.
Its description might seem off-putting, maybe even intimidating. But it’s not what you think – there’ll be no outraged anti-meat stands, no giant carrot cut-outs. Instead, the festival aims to promote vegan food through conventions, film showings, cooking workshops and food trucks.
Who’s it for then? There’s something for everyone actually, especially music-lovers: the Smmmile line-up sounds amazing. Fun pop band Requin Chagrin, Icelandic electro-pop group FM Belfast, London-based DJ Throwing Shade, Piano player Bachar Mar-Khalife, DJ Moscoman and many more.
All concerts will be held in Trabendo, La Villette's signature red club with a ethereal garden. DJ sets will be outdoors at in Parc de La Villette. To the tofu!
