The event’s organisers announced the 2019 guest lineup on 27th November, which includes vegan cooking channel BOSH!, activist Joey Carbstrong, distance runner Fiona Oake, and band Mobius Loop.

Also included on the roster is Rachel Riley, the television presenter known from Channel 4’s Countdown, who has been the source of some controversy recently after posting a selfie wearing a t-shirt bearing a photoshopped image of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn emblazoned with the words “JEREMY CORBYN IS A RACIST ENDEAVOUR”. Many have criticised Riley for co-opting the original image, which in fact showed Corbyn being arrested for protesting apartheid in 1984, claiming that using an image of Corbym protesting racism in order to accuse him of racism is offensive.

Vegan Camp-Out takes place on 21-24 August, 2020, at the Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire. Tickets are available now.
