Street Food events in Cardiff this Summer

Street Food Warehouse

These guys came from nowhere with these event and i only found out after it started, which is rare for me. They launched on April 3rd and are taking place at the Cardiff Arms park next to the Millennium Stadium just off Westgate Street. Expect similar to the Cardiff Street Food event at the Depot last October with a multitude of different vendors offering food, music, craft ales and cocktails. You can register for que jump for free on Fatsoma or there is a £2 walk in charge on the day.

Street Food Circus

Brought to you by Somthing Creatives, the guys behind the biggest street food event the capital has ever seen. Something Creatives is a collective of people who live and breathe festivals, music, food and the arts. They’ve been the brainchild behind some of the hippest events and pop-ups around Cardiff over the past few years with one member being Simon Tuft the owner of the once iconic Catapult Records (sadly closed in January 2015 after 16 years of being the only independent electronic music retailer in Cardiff) and creator of Chucks Burgers who had their own events in Pontcanna, which was the first installment of street food we had on a regular basis for a few months back in 2013 offering craft ales, burgers and live music.

They helped launch and market Cardiff Arts Institute over a 2 year period, brought you the Secret Garden Soundsystem Parties and bi monthly street markets on Womanby Street. The team were also the mastermind behind the successful launch of the Dirty Bird Chicken brand for a small trailer selling chicken that had only set up stall for one event to be picked up by the likes of the Daily Mail tabloid for their branding that is some pretty good work! These were on what you could say a small scale and just to dip their toe in the events and marketing but this has helped them fine tune their trade and this year they mean business with some of the biggest events they’ve hosted to date.

The Street Food Circus will take all the good bits from the Street Food Cardiff event and bring it to a new level with them teaming up with NoFit State Circus with their circus tent bringing you some high stakes entertainment. You can expect some of the same great food traders on a weekly rotation from Hangfire Smokehouse, Chucks, Dirty Bird Chicken and the guys from Hokkei bringing you some of the freshest Asian food I’ve ever tasted! Back with a new direction is Jamie O’Leary who was one of my favourite traders at a few of the street food event’s I went to last year with his Jol’s Food but this time he’s back with his new venture called Patagonia selling all things beef from locally sourced suppliers with a touch of Argentinian thrown in for good measure. It’s fair to say this stall will be one of the first on my list to try!

The Street Food Circus Starts on May 1st to the end of June every weekend between 5pm and 11pm Friday and Saturday and 2pm till 10pm on Sunday at Old Stable Yard off John Street behind Radisson Blu Hotel.

depot weekend events 2015

Depot

The abandoned warehouse on Dumballs Road in Cardiff was transformed into a collection of food trucks, long dinner tables and street art by the guys from Something Creatives for their Street Food Cardiff events that started back in October 2014 on Friday and Saturdays for 2 months. It looks like the venue has had a £25k makeover to spruce things up a bit with outdoor dinning/drinking area now available they will be hosting a number of events themselves over the summer months starting with their Sunday events over the two bank holidays in May featuring hip hop music from Last Skeptik, skate ramps and your chance to learn the basics of graffiti art if you fancy yourself as the next Banksy.

There will be the hot tub cinemas events in collaboration with Motley Movies whereby you can hire out an inflatable hot-tub between groups of up to 8 people whilst enjoying some classic flicks on the big screen and their burger and beats events.

First event starts on May 3rd but there will be lots going on with various music, arts and food pop up’s taking place throughout the summer there. The Depot is based on Dumballs Road which is behind and between Cardiff Central Station and the Cardiff Bay.

Motley Movies rooftop cinema in Cardiff

Motley Movies

I first heard about these guys last year just after the last film they did at Jacobs Antiques Market. They are back with a number of collaborations this summer including a return to Jacobs Antiques Market with their rooftop cinema events showing some classic movies, street food and delicious cocktails as they usually team up with some of the best mixologists such as Two Finger Drinks and street food vendors such as Macho Nacho to offer you the full package for some adult cinema fun that you couldn’t get at the likes of Vue and Cineworld.

As mentioned above they will be trying out a hot tub cinema with the Depot and I heard yesterday they will be hosting some outdoor cinema nights at the Cardiff Bay Waterfront too for some pretty epic backdrops to whatever classics they have playing on the night.

Events taking place at Jacobs Antiques Market, The Depot and Cardiff Bay throughout the Summer.

X Music Festival Cardiff Tickets final release – 12th + 13th June 2015 with Annie Mac, Hannah Wants

This is exactly what Cardiff has been waiting for and the whole of the South Wales since they pulled the plug on Wales only all day dance music festival Escape into the Park a few years back. Let’s just hope it can be an annual thing and keep growing and getting better each year and not knocked on the head like they did with the popular South West 4 event that used to take place in the same location and still attracts thousands to the London leg of the festival in Clapham each summer.

X Music Festival Cardiff headlined by Radio 1’s very own queen of dance music Annie Mac and takes place in the grounds of the capitals most iconic building Cardiff Castle in Bute Park! The X Music Festival takes place over two days on Friday 12th & Saturday 13th June 2015 with final tickets available for single days or both days with VIP tickets also available, which means there’s more chance of you getting some toilet roll to use if you caught short from a full day of chugging plastic pints of Turborg and hotdogs all day!

 

x music festival cardiff lineup headlined by annie mac

There isn’t just main stage goings on from headline acts like Hannah Wants and Jaguar Skills but there will be a the Mi Casa stage for some more underground acts with some of the hottest promoters in Cardiff and the South Wales and West area getting deep down and dirty with the likes of Memorex who I went to see at the Vaults with their NYE event with Delete and the cult following they’ve managed to attract from the summers Delete garden parties at the Gwdihŵ.

Then we have Apex and Disco Palace lending a hand for those who don’t like the more commercial stuff pumping out of the main stage.

Be quick though the early bird and standard tickets have all gone and they are down to the last few tickets for the first instalment of X Music Festival next to Cardiff Castle so get your tickets here.

Buy Chase and Status tickets in Cardiff Splott Market October 4th 2014

Chase and Status have been announced as the headliners in Cardiff  on Saturday 4th October 2014 for Welcome to the Warehouse at Splott Market and tickets are now available to buy.

Chase and Status return to the Welsh Capital for the 2nd installment of warehouse music antics from the organisers of the colour festival back in June at the same venue in Splott Market.

This is a daytime music event, which apart from the ever popular Delete Garden parties that had it’s final installment last weekend are very rare in Cardiff so this is due to sell out.

Apart from Chase and Status who are headlining the Welcome to the Warehouse event in Cardiff the other two DJ’s in the lineup are Kove and dimension but the full lineup is yet to be announced so expect a few more nuggets very soon.

Expect full jungle decorations so get your creative cap on if you want to stand out on the day so we will be expecting a few Tarzan and Jayne’s but lets see what else you can come up with.

To make sure you don’t miss Chase and Status at their next gig in Cardiff buy your tickets here.

With this kind of a event a rare ocurance in the South Wales area this is no doubt going to sell out once the actual lineup is announced so don’t ponder on whether you should get your tickets to the Cardiff Warehouse Party too long.
