An array of food tasters, celebrity cooking demonstrations, drink masterclasses and live music will fill The Downs on May 10-12 as the Foodies Festival comes to Bristol.
Chart-topping band Scouting for Girls are headlining at the event, while Masterchef 2014 champion Ping Coombes will show off her culinary skills on the chef's demonstration stage.
The Foodies Festival is the UK's biggest celebration of food and drink and more than 25,000 people are expected to flock to the spectacle.
Festival director Sue Hitchen said: “Music and food are our two favourite things and over the years we have become known as the country's gastro Glastonbury as we stage festivals up and down the country.
“Bristolians really know their food and love to try something new.
“We can't wait to return.”
Michelin star chefs George Livesey, of Bristol's Bulrush restaurant, and Rob Potter, from the Manor House in Wiltshire, will also carry out demonstrations, along with Jan Ostle of Wilson's restaurant and Louise McCrimmon of the city's Harvey Nichols restaurant.
For the second year running, the festival is supporting Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) with tickets helping to raise money for UK charity Crisis.
Scouting for Girls, whose hits include She's So Lovely, will headline the MAH stage, while leading Queen tribute act Flash and a host of emerging bands and performers will have visitors singing and dancing well into the night.
Visitors can expect more than 200 exhibitors, award-winning artisan producers, a street food village, cakes and desserts theatre, kids cookery school, a chef's theatre, a chilli eating contest, a vegan beer tent and a dog arena.
Guests can book for a day, the whole weekend or enjoy a VIP experience.
Tickets, priced £5-38, can be booked from foodiesfestival.com
