Get your Grill on at Grillstock 2014

The UK’s meatiest music event returns for another two lip-smacking, toe-tapping weekends of fun…

This month in Bristol and Manchester, masses of meat and music lovers will gather to enjoy the finger-lickin’ offerings of this year’s Grillstock Festival – set to be the meatiest event of the year.

Since its debut in 2010, this music and meat fest has made a rather good name for itself, attracting over 10,000 visitors each year. This year’s event is set to be even bigger and better than ever, with over 30 exhibitors organised to attend, including barbecue rub experts, BBQ Gourmet, and pork-loving sausage makers, The Jolly Hog, as well as a whole host of entertainment, including chilli eating and barbecuing contests, cooking demonstrations, street performances, and craft workshops. There will also be a fine selection of craft beers to choose from courtesy of  the USA’s very own Brooklyn Brewery, who will be manning the bars in both Bristol and Manchester this year.

Music lovers can expect over 25 live performances from the likes of pop/rock superstars, the Fun Lovin’ Crimals, who will be headlining the main stage in Bristol on Saturday night, London-based Gypsy Blues rockers, The Urban Voodoo Machine, LA funksters, Vintage Trouble, and Bluegrass legends, Hayseed Dixie, to name but a few. With so much going on, and not one, but two festival dates to choose from, you’d be mad to miss out on this meat extravaganza.

If for any reason you’re not able to make it to one of the festivals this year, you can always pop into one of the two popular smokehouses for lunch or dinner – make sure you check out the website for more details.
