Grillstock will take place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June 2014 at Albert Square, in Manchester.
Headliners Hayseed Dixie, and Vintage Trouble, plus The Urban Voodoo Machine, The Future Shape of Sound, and The Montgomerys are the first act confirmed. With over 25 acts playing across two music stages, a smouldering hot US style low ‘n’ slow BBQ competition and craft beer bars.
Grillstock also features the now legendary Chilli-Eating Competition as well as the mouth-watering Rib-Eating competition and the informative and entertaining BBQ academy.
Early bird weekend tickets are priced at £20 with a Saturday ticket priced at £15, and a Sunday ticket priced at £12.
The heart of the festival will see 'King Of The Grill', a huge two-day US style 'low and slow' BBQ competition with 24 teams battling it out over the smoky coals. This unique BBQ competition means visitors can interact with the teams, taste the food and experience their passion and enthusiasm for authentic barbecue. Master of ceremonies is celebrity US pit-master Dr BBQ (aka Ray Lampe) who will oversee the judging for the weekend.
Along with the meat, music and mayhem festival goers can wash the tasty BBQ down at one of the three bars, promising some of the best craft beers from around the UK, aptly named Brewstock.
Grillstock also happens in Bristol earlier in the month.
This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.
More information will be here when available.
