We know food’s going to be on your mind when you head to Lovebox this year. We’ve got in touch with the founder of The Cheese Truck, Mathew Carver, who’s going to be hitting a load of the festivals with his mobile palace of cheese this summer- and your luck is in because Lovebox is one of them.

Who are The Cheese Truck?
The Cheese Truck set out to celebrate and promote British cheese! We make a range of delicious grilled cheese sandwiches using the very best cheese Britain has to offer. Sourced direct from farms around the UK by ourselves.
How did you come about?
In 2013, I came back to the UK after a bit of soul searching/travelling around Hawaii and the rest of the USA, with an addiction to grilled cheese sandwiches, no money and an old ice cream van sat outside my house! Having spent the previous 5 years of my life selling food at music festivals there was only ever one way this was going to go. I spent the next three months working at a bakery learning about bread and baking, reading everything I could find about British cheese, consuming seriously unhealthy amounts of cheese and putting my design degree to good use! We traded our first Sunday at Maltby Street Market in the pouring rain and sold about 20 sandwiches to friends and family! Smashed it, we thought!
Where can we find you?
We trade every Saturday and Sunday at Maltby Street Market. We’re also at around 25 festivals this summer including: Glastonbury, Lovebox, Wildlife, Field Day, End of the Road, Festival No 6, Lost Village Festival, Bestival, Wilderness, Port Eliot Festival etc etc..
Your signature dish?
Our signature sandwich at festivals is the probably the cheddar, ogleshield and onion with bacon! It’s the ultimate cheese and bacon toasty and served with bloody mary baked beans, it’s a winner! Perfect when you’re stumbling back to your tent after one too many ciders…
If you could see just one act at Lovebox this year, who would it be?
Hands down it would be LCD Soundsystem, I’m hoping to get away from the truck for that one!
Your favourite thing about festivals is…
Festivals are infectious, they’re the hardest and most relentless events you’ll ever do but easily the most fun! All the customers you serve are having the time of their life. They’ve been dancing all night with their best friends and they can’t help but smile… what’s not to love about that!
