Moby’s Circle V festival in Los Angeles is back – and this time, the singer, longtime vegan and animal rights activist is partnering with Spaceland Presents to pull it all off.
Moby founded Circle V last year with Tony Kanal of No Doubt. The mini-festival celebrates the vegan lifestyle through food, drinks and live music. It also raises money for Mercy for Animals, a nonprofit group that works to end animal exploitation and encourages people to eat a plant-based diet.
This year’s event is scheduled for Nov. 18 at the historic Regent Theater in downtown LA.
Moby is headlining, as he did last year. The full lineup includes performances by Waka Flocks Flame, Raury, Reggie Watts and Dreamcar, which is Kanal’s new band. All of the musicians are vegans.
Moby is widely-known for his veganism and concern for animals. He owns Little Pine, a popular vegan restaurant in LA’s Silver Lake neighborhood, and he uses his Instagram feed as a platform for his advocacy. Moby has been vegan since 1987, according to his Twitter page.
“Creating a future where animals are allowed to live their lives in peace and according to their own wills is my life’s work,” he said in a statement put out by Spaceland Presents. “A future that involves free and independent animals also involves a 45 percent reduction in climate change gases, 90 percent reduction in rainforest deforestation, 75 percent reduction in antibiotic resistance and at least a 50 percent reduction in diabetes, heart disease and most cancers.”
Circle V also will feature discussion panels with plant-based chefs, animal rights activists and vegan athletes. Other experts will lead talks on vegan living, the future of food and social media.
The event is partnering also with Eat Drink Vegan to offer plant-based food and drink options from more than a dozen vendors, including Little Pine, Ridiculous Baking Co., Plant Food for People, Mama’s International Tamales, Baby Love Sweeter and more.
Beer will be available too, from breweries like MacLeod Ale Brewing Co. and Angel City Brewery. Non-alcoholic choices will include a vegan kombucha garden. Califia Farms will sell vegan wares.
Tickets prices range between $35 and $150. For tickets and more information, go here.
