Good music should come with some good food – and good food doesn’t have to damage our ecosystem. Our food trucks serve delicious meals with the lowest environmental impact possible. Ingredients are seasonal and biological, served in compostable or washable tableware. Like every year, the menu is meat-free (although there will be some options with sustainably caught fish). Moreover, these food trucks have joined forces to source their ingredients locally and organically. So get a taste of these fantastic food partners and charge your batteries for an unforgettable festival weekend.
Barzinho is all about healthy, local and sustainable food. At Paradise City, Barzinho will offer a delicious veggie pitta. No tofu, no Quorn, no soy – just celery root, baby!
As the 5th generation in a family of butchers based in Ypres, BonMush missed the great taste, texture and quality in most veggie alternatives. So they decided to develop their own meat-free alternative based on oyster mushrooms. For Paradise City, BonMush picked out their two best vegetarian sausages: the Boudin Blanc and the Farmer’s Sausage (Boerenworst), giving them a twist. Additionally, they will offer two delicious, fully equipped Haute Dogs.
How about some Indian soul food with a twist? Hell yeah! Mission Masala already has two restaurants, one in Antwerp and one in Ghent, but now they’ll bring their tasty Pow Pow burger, Butter Paneer and Samosa Chaat to our Paradise City Citizens.
Yalla Yalla (‘come on’ in Arabic) started seven years ago when two sisters wanted to share their delicious homemade falafel with the world. This team, with restaurants in Ghent and Antwerp, has been a regular guest at Paradise City for years, and it’s easy to see why.
Ray & Jules
Coffee may be delicious; a kilogram of roasted coffee usually costs 1,5 kilograms of CO2 emissions. Ray & Jules want to offer a sustainable alternative, which is why they have developed their own slow roaster powered by solar energy – a unique feature worldwide. So let’s enjoy our cup of black gold without damaging our environment, shall we? Fun fact: Ray refers to a ray of sunshine and Jules to ‘Joule’, the unit in which energy is measured.

Tasty Asian food in a sandwich? Hell yes! Banh Mi (named after the banh mi sandwich) offers the most famous street snack in Vietnam: a French baguette with a rice or noodle salad, joined by homemade curry tofu or sautéed tempeh. It’s incredibly flavorful, easy to digest and not too spicy (unless that’s what you want). The secret ingredient? Special homemade marinades, herb mixes and a boatload of love!
Jean Sur Mer
The pioneer in the Belgian food truck scene! For the lovers of the sea and all its treasures. Jean Sur Mer only serves seasonal fish, caught sustainably and locally, which means fresh!
Fritez doesn’t do fast food; it does fast good. Every potato in this friterie deluxe is grown locally, organically, and cut fresh. They fry their goodies just the right amount to create these perfect, gold-brown, crispy fries we Belgians love. Our national dish, upgraded – call it haute friture. Please don’t call them French fries around here.
Steenokkerzeel represent!

OTTO Street Food

Ice Jewels & Daydreams
Homemade ice pops made of fresh fruit without additives – sounds good, right? Feeling funky? Some popsicles even have a little alcohol, like the mojito, pink negroni or strawberry caipirinha ones. And on top of that, they only use natural ingredients (like cane sugar) and seasonal fruit for their homemade pancakes and pies. Life is short; eat dessert first.
De Koezina is a unique Moroccan food experience. They bring you authentic oriental flavours with all their delicious colours and scents. The vegetarian couscous and tajine are based on a traditional family recipe from one generation to the next.
Tel Aviv is a colourful city full of contrasts, smells and flavours – and Boker Tov brings that melting pot to Paradise City. The Boker Tov kitchen uses an abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables in their restaurants throughout Antwerp and their food truck. So prepare to be immersed in the fantastic Middle Eastern cuisine.
Bicho Malo means ‘evil bug’, coming from the Spanish saying ‘bicho malo nunca muere’, which translates to ‘weeds do not perish’. The Mexican street food concept stands for good and simple food, a warm and sexy rock ‘n roll vibe and a healthy amount of self-mockery. So come and taste their pancitos and tacos, if you dare.
