Food Traders Applications Are Now Open
We are pleased to announce Food Trader Applications for 2018 are NOW OPEN! Flavours from around the world with ingredients sourced locally.
Traders are an important and integral part of Noisily. Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with a variety of awesome kitchensmiths, who have provided fantastical fare to our battle weary ravers and zen transformationalists.
The festival is growing and so is our collective hunger, with this in mind we are looking for sustainably minded food traders to add to the festival menu.
The aim this year is to provide diversity of choice, whilst always keeping the environment at the forefront of our minds.
At Noisily we try to create the most profitable environment possible for traders at the event by:
- Making sure our pitch fees allow scope for both the festival and trader to make a reasonable profit.
- Limit the number of traders we have on site so that we don’t dilute the market and thus make it harder for traders to turn a profit.
- Locate our traders in the optimum position to ensure high footfall and sales
- Ensuring no two traders are selling the same or similar food
Noisily is one big, happy, mildly dysfunctional family, and as a result we’ve build up relationships with traders over the years. So to save you time, we are NOT looking for the following food types…
- Pizza & Pasta
- Indian Food
- Burgers, artisan or otherwise
There are two areas in the festival where food traders operate, one is the Main Arena, and the other is the Mind Body Soul area.
Trading times in Mind Body Soul are from midday on Thursday 5th until close at midnight on Sunday 8th July. Mind Body Soul is open 24 hours and situated in the main campsite.
The Main Arena is open from Friday at midday to 4am Saturday, Saturday at 11am until 4am Sunday, and Sunday at 11am until 11pm.
We expect all traders to arrive on Monday 2nd July and by no later than Tuesday 3rd. For those trading in the Mind Body Soul area you will need to be set up and ready to trade by 3pm on Wednesday 4th. Traders in the Main Site will need to be set up by midday on Thursday 5th.
Trader inspections take place on Wednesday at 4pm in the Mind Body Soul area, and in the Main Site at 2pm on Thursday 5th.
Traders in both areas will then be required to remain static until 2pm on Monday 9th July at the earliest.
Applications close on February 15th, and once we have received all the applications please allow four weeks for us to review them before getting back to you. Although we hope it may be sooner!
The more information you send about yourself, your food and your set up the more likely you are to get a pitch. Any proposals that do not include images of your stall will not be considered. If you are a new stall, send us some drawings and we can go from there.
If you are accepted we will contact you for further information, if you are not, we will get in touch to make sure we don’t leave you hanging!
Applications close on the 15th February, We may begin to review them early so get your application is as soon as you can.
We look forward to hearing from you and then tasting what you’ve got to offer in July 2018. Good luck and have a splendid time wherever you may be, spread the love, share the vibe, and make happiness priority number 1!
