If you follow any major food influencers on social media, you know that The Infatuation has a cult following — the brand has inspired its readers to tag more than 6 million photos with “#EEEEEATS.” The Infatuation has recently announced it is expanding beyond its website, newsletter, mobile app, and 22 Instagram accounts with its very first food festival, EEEEEATSCON.
In partnership with the Premier Rewards Gold Card from American Express, Bumble, and Caviar, the one-day festival will include a series of panels and keynote speeches, musicians (including The Knocks and Lizzo), endless Instagram opportunities, and of course lots and lots of food, according to The Infatuation’s website.
Although the rest of the keynotes and panels have yet to be revealed, Shep Gordon, the music venue manager who the brand says brought celebrity chefs to light, will spearhead a discussion. There will also be a talk with Los Angeles-based chef, baker, and author Nancy Silverton.
Tickets for the festival are currently available online. A general admission bundle costs $100, while a single general admission ticket is $40.
