Back by popular demand, Foodies Festival, the UK's biggest celebration of food and drink, returns to The Downs Bristol on the May 11, 12 and 13 with a mouth-watering summer event, which this year includes the launch of a brand new Musicians Against Homelessness music stage and extended opening times.

The festival will celebrate live music into the night on the newly launched stage with performances from much-loved headliner Toploader, power pop rock group Dodgy and hugely admired band The Hoosiers. Supported by Musicians Against Homelessness, the live music stage will see talented emerging bands and solo artists perform with tickets raising money for UK-wide homelessness charity Crisis.

Alan McGee, Patron of Musicians Against Homelessness, said: “Foodies Festival is the UK’s largest food and drink festival and with such fantastic summer events it seemed a natural link to partner with a festival that reaches the hearts of so many local communities. In turn, we’re confident that they can help us raise awareness and funds for our homelessness charity Crisis by bringing popular headliner bands to their stages alongside some of the country’s best unsigned musical talent.”

Fantastic live music adds the cherry on top of an unrivalled foodie feast, proving there’s no better place to be this summer than Foodies Festival – a gastronomic Glastonbury!
