The Queen of festivals, you really cannot beat Glastonbury for the ultimate UK music festival experience. Luckily for us coeliacs, having a gluten free Glastonbury Festival is EASY! I have been going for years (2019 will be my 8th Glasto) and it just gets better for gluten free choices each time. Take a haul of gluten free snack supplies and a camping stove if you want to save some money, otherwise let loose into the festival and gorge on some amazing gluten free meals. These days there are tonnes of stalls with gluten free options, including some fully gluten free stands, meaning you can have the exact same festival experience as the gluten eaters.

Gluten Free Glastonbury Festival Stalls
Dosa Deli (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Delicious South Indian Street Food. The entire stall was gluten free last time we visited. I recommend their dosa wraps (made with naturally gluten free lentil flour) with chilli tomato chutney and paneer cheese filling, bombey bhel and coconut chutney sauce. Add a gluten free onion bahji on the side if you are extra hungry.
WHERE: Two stalls for 2019 – they have confirmed their locations as their usual spot in William’s Green, opposite the Queen’s Head at the bottom of muddy lane near the meeting point. The other truck has moved slightly and will now be between the Other Stage and Silver Hayes.
Le Rac Shack and Le Steak Shack (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
I love cheese. The other glasto favourite I tend to make a beeline for is Le Rac Shack as they have a few gluten free options. Try new potatoes, cornichons and French slaw with melted raclette cheese on top or cheese chips with gravy! They also have gluten free sausages and steak.
WHERE: Opposite the Somerset cider bus just up from the Band Stand.
Paellaria (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Yummy gluten free paella (or have a bi-ella, which is half chicken and chorizo paella and half squash, chickpea and bean paella). New for 2019 is a third spot, Paellaria Vegan, which is going to be fully vegan and free from the top 14 allergens. Brilliant news!
WHERE: At William’s Green and also between the Other Stage and the Pyramid Stage. Paellaria Vegan will be on the road to Avalon, at the top end near the Greenpeace field.
The Happy Maki (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Specialising in vegan sushi and with some gluten free options available. This year everything will be gluten free aside from two of their sauces (avoid the teriyaki and hoisin as they contain gluten). Staff are happy to swap them for a gluten free sauce instead, just let them know.
WHERE: In William’s Green next to Paelleria.
Flavors of Africa (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Serving Nigerian food and completely gluten free, dairy free and wheat free. Dishes include jollof rice, bean cake, bbq chicken, plantain and spinach stew.
Buddha Bowls (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Winners of the people’s choice awards at Glastonbury in 2016, this is one of my top recommendations. Their buddha bowls are completely gluten free and are the perfect hit of filling, healthy food. Massaman curry with new potatoes, pineapple and soya chunks with kimchi pickle, steamed greens, brown rice, omega seeds and halloumi. The dish is vegan too if you have it without the halloumi.
WHERE: TBC. In 2017 they were located to the left of the Pyramid Stage.
Dough (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Proper gluten free pizza, with strong measures to prevent cross contamination, at the Dough stand. They use rice flour for all their pizza dusting, making it much safer for us coeliacs. Their pizza tasted AWESOME in 2017 and I’ll be making a beeline for them in 2019.
WHERE: At the entrance to The Park.
Wingmans (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Chicken wings and chips. These guys were SO SO helpful in providing gluten free info when I contacted them and I will definitely be trying them at the 2019 festival. David in their team sent me a list of their gluten free options and confirmed that these are all safe for coeliacs (two require some minor alterations so please read carefully) – they will have COELIAC SAFE CHIPSSSSSS too! All gluten free items are cooked separatly.
Gluten free menu items:
Buffalo Wings (+ Blue Cheese Dip & Celery)
Salt & Pepper Wings
BBQ Wings (Gluten Free only ON REQUEST!)
Cauliflower Wings (Gluten Free only ON REQUEST!)
WHERE: Saxon Markets on route to the Pyramid Stage from The Other Stage.
Goan Seafood Company (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
This Goan fish curry stall is fully gluten free and dairy free, plus largely nut free. Get there before midday for some brekfast kedgeree. A veggie curry option is also available.
WHERE: West Holts, right next to the bar at the top of the field, to the right of the stage as you face it.
La Bonne Crepe (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Gluten free galettes galore! Check about cross-contamination when you order if you are coeliac in case some products may contain traces of wheat from the cooking process. The whole menu can be made gluten free and they offer vegan options too.
WHERE: The Pyramid Stage opposite Boulevard Bar.
The Cake Hole (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
The Cake Hole have an EPIC array of gluten free cakes for the 2019 festival, including gluten free sticky toffee pudding! The answer to my hungover prayers. This year’s flavours will include: Carrot cake; Raspberry chocolate brownie; Salted caramel chocolate brownie; Lemon drizzle; Whole orange cake; Sticky toffee pudding; and Avocado chocolate vegan cake. Wowie.
WHERE: In the Accoustic Field, near the bar.
Carlito Burrito (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
A newcomer to the 2019 festival food scene, Carlito Burrito tell me that all their burritos are gluten free if you have them as a rice bowl rather than wrap. The bowls will feature refried beans, Mexican red rice, chipotle sour cream, pico de gallo salsa, choice of fillings and fresh lettuce.
WHERE: Next to the Pyramid Stage, in the Saxon Market.
Pyramid Catering (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Breaking food news – this year they are offering gluten free, vegan “fish” and chips and battered “sausage” and chips – a Glastonbury first – as well as loaded fries and chips with dips! Oh plus banana fritters if you fancy something sweet and they also offer a gluten free vegan full English style brekkie with vegan sausage, fried potato, mushrooms and baked beans.
Matt who runs the stall mentioned to me that their fryers are completely gluten free as only gluten free things are fried in them, but as per many stalls they do use gluten in their kitchen. They have measures to prevent cross contamination and keep everything as separate as possible.
WHERE: In the market area on the walk between the Other Stage and the Pyramid Stage, close to the Pyramid Stage.
Fish Finger Heaven (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Fish Finger Heaven will be offering gluten free menu options, which includes gluten free fish finger butties and potato waffles with cheesy beans all prepared in a cleansed area of the stall. They take cross contam really seriously (they do have normal bread too, but all done very separately) and have separate griddles, cutley, butter dish, etc, plus packaging is also kept separate to eliminate cross contamination as far as possible
WHERE: Circus Field in a row alongside the Circus Tent.
Peckish Peacock (CONFIRMED FOR 2019)
Named “Food Festival Caterer of the Year” in 2018, Peckish Peacock serve up Indian veggie food and have quite a few gluten free options. Their 2019 gluten free options including: Pakora Snack Box (Indian fritters with onion dipped in gram flour and their homemade spice mix serve with chutney), The Lunch Box: Chickpea and spinach curry served with cumin rice, and The Peckish Peacock Special Box: Chickpea and spinach curry, cumin rice and pakoras served with chutney and mini popadoms.
WHERE: Two locations in 2019. 1) near the Pyramid Stage – if you’re facing Pyramid stage and take the path to the right of the stage, Peckish Peacock will be the first stall on that corner. 2) in The Park next to The Rabbit Hole on the same side of the field as the main stage.
The Hippy Chippy
The only place I found coeliac safe gluten free chips in 2017, although as you will have read above there are a couple of other options for 2019.
La Grande Bouffe
Tartiflette and gluten free sausages YES. That’s your hangover sorted. There are normally a couple of these stalls on the festival site and they are my all-time favourite gluten free glastonbury food stop. After a heavy cider-fuelled night I NEED CARBS and I need them fast. This French stall does a mean tartiflette (potatoes, cheese, garlic, bacon amazingness) with optional gluten free sausage on top. This place has saved me from certain hangover death on more than one occasion and is always the first food place I seek out at the festival.
WHERE: TBC. Usually the West Holts Stage (to the left of the Brothers Bar) and Pyramid Stage (on the left of the stage as you look at it, near the Cider Bus).
Green Brownie Bar
Gluten free brownies! I met the lovely Lorna at Green Brownie Bar at Glasto in 2017 and she confirmed that all of their brownies were be gluten free. They were even offering affogato – dream! There will also be some vegan gluten free ones and a raw brownie option. PLUS they will have some gluten free breakfast options, in the form of fruit muffins and yoghurt/seeds/nuts/fruit/honey.
WHERE: tbc. William’s Green
The Green Bean
A naturally gluten free and dairy free food stall that can cater for everyone with yummy, healthy food. Dishes include Caribbean chicken, chicken chorizo stew with butter beans and olives, massaman curry, Perisan fusion (vegan) and a full English breakfast that is fully gluten free and sounds amazing (Cumberland sausage, tomatoes, Heinz beans, mushrooms, bacon, poacked egg). I had a great butternut squash massaman curry and a chicken and chorizo stew from here in 2017.
WHERE: TBC. Behind the Pyramid Stage on the right hand side as you walk down the hill from the campsite.
Wham Bam Tikka
A fully gluten free Indian food stall.
Loads of gluten free and dairy free dishes, such as confit beef, paella, bisi rice and chicken provencal.
WHERE: TBC. Usually near John Peel, en route to the Beat Hotel and the Pyramid.
The Garlic Farm
A late confirmation for 2017, the Garlic Farm field kitchen will be there this year. Worth checking out as last time they were offering gluten free garlic bread with beef chilli, chorizo or veggie garlic mushrooms.

Gallo Risotto to Go
