Keeping you fed and watered throughout the day, enjoy a specially curated selection of craft beer from Fourpure, Brooklyn, and even a limited-edition Signature Brew beer created in collaboration with Rodney P & Tru Thoughts, plus vegan hotdogs from Joey’s Kitchen, and a pop-up burger stall from Lucky Chip.

About Tru Thoughts

Tru Thoughts was set-up in 1999 when Robert Luis and Paul Jonas joined forces to create a platform for the exciting new music that was coming through their club nights at the time. It quickly grew into one of the UK’s most respected independent labels, with a roster featuring uniquely talented singers, American brass bands, underground UK hip hop acts and globetrotting dance music producers.
