Vice reported that the touring Cheese Fest caused outrage online after attendees complained of a shortage of cheese and long queues.

The festival bills itself as the UK's biggest touring cheese festival, promising an array of samples from vendors and entertainment.

Following the Brighton date of the event, people have took to social media to voice their complaints. YouTube star @brackersTV has made a parody song regarding the festival titled Where Is The Camembert?

When MUNCHIES, Vice's dedicated food page, reached out to Cheese Fest UK for comment, a spokesperson said they were "currently in communication with the local Brighton promoters and event team" and thanked everyone who attended the Brighton event. They went on to say, "We would like to take the time to apologise for the queues on the Saturday of the event, which were as a result of our dedication to selling hot and fresh food to order.

"Although we are extremely sorry for those who were hoping for a traditional farmers style market of cheese, we stand behind the event as being marketed as a contemporary festival of modern cheese and street food such as mac and cheese waffles, halloumi fries, raclette and more."


Cheese Fest is set top arrive at The Custard Factory in Birmingham on November 18.
