In 2018, Co-op announced an exclusive partnership with Live Nation, which saw them become the first UK food retailer to have a supermarket at major UK music festivals. 

This year, the retailer has expanded its operations to include two new big festivals to their pop-up supermarket roster. Among those festivals, you could bump into the lovely team at Co-op at heavyweight Download, Lana Del Ray and George Ezra-fronted Latitude, the Isle of Wight in mid-June and Creamfields.

Co-op's pop-up festival roster for 2019 also includes the Belladrum Tartan Heart festival near Inverness in Scotland, which has sold out every year since 2008 and is bound to be filled with rumbling tummies!

The pop-up will offer hungry festival-goers across these six festival sites all the essentials like sandwiches, water, bacon, eggs and bread, and of course, your standard sun screams and ponchos. The shop will also stock beer and wine, toiletries and medicines to cover all eventualities.

Co-op will also be bringing their tasty fresh food and drink (a welcomed alternative to four solid days of cheesy chips and lukewarm pints!) to Glastonbury from the 26th-30th June. Arguably the UK's biggest festival, Glastonbury has one-upped itself this year with a stellar line-up including the likes of Janet Jackson, Christine and The Queens, Billie Eilish, Stormzy, Miley Cyrus and Kylie. Glastonbury’s famous for its high environmental and community responsibility standards which means that the 175,000 people attending the Somerset-based festival will get to contribute to Co-op's effort to support UK community groups.

The 6,000-square-feet pop-up food shop will bring Glastonbury-goers their ever-important rain ponchos, food and drink found in usual co-op stores and provide an extra little space for dancing among the madness with an in-store DJ spinning tunes into the early hours.

It was a big hit with attendees during last year's festival season, and this year is set to be even bigger and better. And good news, there’s also no need for cash as they'll have different types of contactless payments available.

The shops will be conveniently placed in the campsite areas of the festival site, open from 7am until 1am, and have a high number of till points to get you your breakfast, lunch or dinner fix as quickly as possible.
