Uniquely, Tropical Pressure is a 100% Vegetarian Festival! We work hard to source some of the very best Vegetarian chefs and street food stalls across the land and aim to offer a delicious range of meals and snacks that all the family will enjoy.
Bean Bug: When in need for your daily caffeine fix, look out for this rather quirky tricycle. These guys do some seriously good, freshly ground coffee, proper flapjacks, a good cuppa and friendly chat. beanbug.co.uk
Blue Moon Cafe: a lovely place to be day and night for a chill and a bite. Once In A Blue Moon is a travelling cafe which was started in 2013 by a group of friends who had been going to festivals in the UK and backpacking the world for over 10 years.
Choccy Churros: We can’t imagine what life would be like without a sunny field, filled with colourful people, tropical music and the sweet wafting smells of those deep fried Spanish doughnut sticks… Basically, you can’t have a festival without them (and that rich chocolate sauce). We’re happy to say that this year we can all enjoy a cheeky churro at 2 in the morning… it’s clearly what festivals are for!
Deli Pops: Concocted and frozen in St. Agnes, Deli Pops will be supplying us all with their colourful, melt in the mouth and utterly delicious Ice-Lollies via their vintage freezer bike. We are proud of these guys who are now selling their proper lollies across the nation! Have a little lick on a coconut and mint and you’ll find yourself on a tropical island. http://www.delipops.co.uk/
KCF: or Keep Cornwall Fed. Two lovely Chefs from the Eden Project kitchens who will be making some really groovy veggie and vegan burgers, fries and sweet potato wedges for us to devour. However, aside from the tasty grub, these two are on a mission to reduce food waste and tackle food poverty in Cornwall. KCF is a social enterprise and for every meal sold at Tropical Pressure, another meal will be donated back to someone in food poverty.
LaFaFa: We couldn’t have a vegetarian, world music festival without Falafel and Lindsey makes hers hot and fresh. Served in hot pitas, stuffed with zesty Lebanese inspired salads, juice olives homemade pickles and generally just all round vibrant flavors. lafafacatering.co.uk

Chip of the Block: A crispy, golden outer shell, with a soft and fluffy inner core. Unique, simple, delicious… and downright essential. These guys are bringing us triple cooked cheesy chips to enjoy from day, till night and early morning. Not only are these chips cooked to perfection, but they are also going to be wrapped in the most delicious three cheese combo.: Montgomery’s Ogleshield, Montgomery’s Cheddar and Smoked Cheddar. These already tick all our cheesy-chippy boxes, but we can also rest easy because we have official confirmation that these chips are cheesy all the way through, with every spud making contact!
