School beckons and the holiday period is coming to a close, but ‘vegan pop festival’ Smmmile à la Villette, from September 16-18, is here to rescue us from those back-to-work blues. This food and music festival aims to promote vegan food through talks, film showings, cooking workshops and a handful of tip-top food trucks.
As for the music programme, there’s something for pretty much everyone. From the futuristic Caribbean sounds of Ifé to trance-inducing Syrian techno from Omar Souleyman, from Batuk’s SA afro-house to the psychedelic afro beats of Golden Dawn Arkestra, the variety is endless. And the list goes on: Prince Rama, Caberet Contemporain, OK Lou, Ariel Ariel, Forever Pavot, Isaac Delusion will also be playing. To the tofu!
