This week, the Big Day Out festival has announced a touring festival first in Australia: the concept that food at a festival should be GOOD. With the amount of Food Trucks now popping up, particularly on the East Coast, there’s no longer any excuse that food at festivals should be limited to Dagwood Dogs and Gozlemes. Thankfully, following in the footsteps of their sister festivals in the USA - Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza – the festival organizers agree with this sentiment, something that overseas audiences have been enjoying for such a long time, and will be setting up Chow Town in 2013.
It's a shame we won't get to see any coverage of the Glastonbury Festival this year due to the preparation of the 2012 London Olympics (still exciting though!), however, there are plenty of other offerings over the coming months that are sure to please. Only if you're planning to travel overseas in the near future though... For the rest of us, we'll just have to live vicariously through our well-travelled friends.
The Jezabels are set to hit the stage with long list of big names, including Black Sabbath, at this years Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.
