Don't Miss North London's Biggest Free Street Food Festival

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Alexandra Palace.

Hungry? Thirsty? On the lookout for London's most Instagrammable view? Head to StrEATlife, the street food and craft beer festival popping up at Alexandra Palace this summer. With music, beer and cuisines from Bao buns to Buddha bowls, this free festival is not to be missed.

In the iconic grounds of London's famous Alexandra Palace, StrEATlife will be feeding the masses over four weekends from May to August. The first festival is on 27-28 May, so if you're a bit of a foodie, have a soft spot for awesome ales or just love a bit of free live music, put the date in your diary.

Food ranges from the exotic (check out the chicken at Mama Jerk) to the homely (Annie Mae's mac and cheese is second to none) and the virtuous (Wholefood Heaven sounds like it's pretty good for you).

There's a range of vegan and veggie options too, everyone can join in on the street food action — with such a great selection, the only problem's going to be deciding what to tuck into.

Live music is a big part of StrEATlife — where would a good festival be without it? The May edition will see performances from the likes of Brasstermind and Amazonica, with Soho Radio DJS taking charge of the decks on the Sunday.

Later weekends boast tunes from Showhawk Duo, DJ Yoda and Temple Funk Collective among others — whether you're into jazz, folk, reggae or ska, StrEATlife will have you busting some moves before you can say 'street food'.

Of course, good street food needs to be accompanied by an equally impressive drink. The festival also has a focus on craft beer so expect all the best IPAs, bitters and ciders from the many bars.

For those not so keen on hops, there will be cocktails courtesy of Dash Concept Cocktails, who have created a special edition Bounty Daiquiri for the event.

Head to Ally Pally's StrEATlife on a Saturday to see live graffiti with some of the city's best street artists — you may be inspired to get creative yourself.

Summer is coming, and what better way to spend a sunny weekend than with a pint of craft beer, some delicious street food, and one of the most stunning views of London? StrEATlife is also completely free to enter, so there'll be more cash for your cocktails.

StrEATlife Street Food and Craft Beer Festival is popping up at Alexandra Palace on the following weekends: 27-28 May, 17-18 June, 22-23 July and 19 -20 August from 12pm until 10pm.
