Grillstock is back for a weekend of meat-fuelled mayhem and a thrilling musical line-up...
Grillstock returns for a landmark eighth edition, bringing a phenomenal feast of meaty goodness and barbecued brilliance to the city — with plenty of entertainment and a huge line-up of over 30 musical guests set to keep the celebrations rockin’ all weekend!
The ever-popular bash celebrates flame-cooked food of every description, with global barbecue styles, from Argentinian to Jamaican, represented with aplomb!
If you want to try out other gourmet treats, there are churros, pancakes and ice creams to chomp away at.
Iconic rockers The Darkness, funkmaster general Craig Charles and rap legends The Pharcyde head up the star-studded bill, which boasts a cavalcade of noisemakers all set to get you in the mood to party hard! Hayseed Dixie, Goldie Lookin’ Chain and Tom Williams will also be playing over the weekend, but it’s not all about the music…
Do you have the belly of a champion? Grillstock also features a healthy dose of competitive action, with chilli pepper eating, hot dog munching and spicy wing scoffing competitions to take part in — only for the brave of course! — with prizes for those that come out on top. As well as eating challenges, a raft of teams are vying to be crowned Grillstock royalty at the annual King Of The Grill tournament — a competition at the heart of the festival, with seven categories judged by barbecue experts from all corners of the country.
Grillstock also hosts a massive range of traders, cooking workshops, demonstrations and a mesmerising battle of the bands! If you’ve got younger children, there’s entertainment and activities for them to get involved with too.
Day and weekend tickets are available, with special Pit Crew packages on sale for devotees! Under 16s get discounted access for just a fiver but must be accompanied by an adult.
