Moby is becoming a most-loved icon within the vegan world, and with good reason. He created the restaurant of dreams: a 100% vegan, animal-free restaurant in Silver Lake, called Little Pine and more recently, a vegan cocktail bar in NYC. He even donates all profits to animal rights organisations.

And Moby just keeps upping his game. Last year, he launched his very own mini-festival, called Circle V (if you haven’t guessed, it’s vegan themed) which doubled as a charity event for Mercy for Animals.

For those of you who went and loved it, and those of you who couldn’t make it last year but would love the chance to attend such a festival, we bring you exciting news: today, Spaceland Presents announced that it will be partnering with Moby and his Circle V co-founder Tony Kanal to bring the festival back for a second year. It will be hosted at the Regent Theatre in downtown Los Angeles, with a bucketload of vegan acts! You might want to make space in your diary for Saturday, November the 18th, because it’s set to be an event you won’t want to miss.

The headline act will be Moby himself, whereby he is expected to perform a unique live set – along with rapper Waka Flocka Flame and Kanal’s new band Dreamcar

Not only this, but comedian and musician Reggie Watts and rapper-singer Raury will all perform, along with lots more talent awaiting public announcement.

If this hasn’t got you raring to book tickets, and you fancy more than just music, Moby has you covered. The festival will feature special guest speakers, including talks with vegan athletes, plant-based chefs, and animal rights experts and activists. Whether you’re a long-time vegan, newbie or someone considering the lifestyle, there is an abundance of events and talks for you to enjoy.

And if the music and educational opportunities still aren’t enough to excite you, maybe the food will. Little Pine will of course participate and feed the festival’s attendees, along with Ridiculous Baking Co., Word of Mouth Truck, Donut Friend, Plant Food for People, Sage Vegan Bistro, Mama’s International Tamalesand even more!

And with a full stomach, brain full of inspiration and ears ringing with excellent music, there’s only one more thing you could need from a festival: beverages. Circle V will have its own vegan beer garden offering samples from more than 20 breweries, and for the health-lovers a non-alcoholic vegan kombucha garden.

If all this has persuaded you that you need a ticket, grab one now!
