As the national capital continues to reel in toxic air for the fourth day in a row on Friday, the organisers of the Delhi Food Truck Festival (DFTF) have decided to push it to next month.

The second edition of the DFTF, touted to be India’s largest food truck festival, was slated to take place on November 11 and 12 at the Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium in Delhi. The organisers, in a statement, said that they are shifting the dates as the pollution level has gone beyond acceptable limits. "The city is reeling under critical weather conditions, and it seems appropriate to postpone the fest to a later date till the air quality improves," read their statement.

“Delhites, wait for a while for the fun to begin at the second edition of DFTF.  We care for you,” the organising committee further said, adding, "We really regret the inconvenience caused."

While the venue remains the same, the festival is rescheduling to a tentative date in December.

Apart from Indian food, the fest will have cuisines from America, Italy and China. There will also be live performances by well-known bands, including Knox Artiste, Zikr Band, DJ Basspatch, Bollywood Brothers and Mankirt Aulakh, in addition to performances by singer KK, the band Euphoria and DJ Anish Sood.

Entry tickets worth Rs 249 per person will be available soon at Paytm and Insider.in.
