Further Future Announces Plans for 2016 Food & Beverage Program
After an award-winning debut, innovative boutique festival Further Future returns this spring with a groundbreaking food and beverage lineup that features luminary chefs, renowned mixologists, and culinary experts. The highly anticipated second voyage continues to distinguish itself as a forward-thinking and pioneering event, bringing visionary leaders in music, tech, wellness, and gastronomy for a lavish camping and guest-centric festival experience at the Moapa River Reservation beyond Las Vegas from April 29 to May 1.
With some of gastronomy's biggest names participating and presented by Food and Beverage Director Jolene Mannina of Relish LCC, FF002’s brilliantly curated gourmet offerings range from lobster pho and open-fire grilled meats to unique coffee concoctions, omakase sushi, locally sourced produce, artisanal gelato, molecular recipes, and numerous vegetarian and vegan options—all set against the Mojave Desert’s stunning backdrop. Guests are also presented with a standout, internationally renowned music lineup that includes Nicolas Jaar, Four Tet, Caribou, Lee Burridge, DJ Tennis, Leftfield, The Pharcyde, and 50-plus more artists across multiple stages.
The featured chefs include Frank Gorriceta (Nobu), Jason Neroni (The Rose), Arthur Tsui (Three Dice Kitchen), Michael Bryant (The Larchmont), and returning from FF001, Sam Marvin (Echo & Rig), who will host unforgettable pop-up dinners throughout the weekend with dishes like Moroccan spiced lamb shoulder, charred octopus, and king crab amazu ponzu. Seats are limited and must be purchased in advance online. Further Future will also offer a slew of choices to satisfy the festival-goer’s appetite 24 hours a day in the Vendor Village with delectable bites and drinks from SLO-Boy, District One, Makers & Finders Coffee, QFS Tacos, Poutine Your Mouth, Grassroots, Dragon Grille, and more.
In addition to world-class cuisine, no Futurist will go thirsty with rare Japanese whiskey tastings from Bar Gyu+, consummate libations from Richie Hawtin’s own ENTER.Sake, Oaxaca-made and Damiana-distilled Mezcal selections from Gem & Bolt and elegantly crafted cocktail offerings from The SPKMN Group. FF002 will also host bartender takeovers from revered Las Vegas establishments Herbs & Rye and Velveteen Rabbit presented by King Hippo, a 24-hour bar, and craft beers on tap in the Vendor Village.
