Grillstock will take place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st May 2015 at Albert Square, in Manchester.
Headlined by Grandmaster Flash and The Heavy, with support acts including The Cuban Brothers, and Grillstock favourite Levi Roots also on hand, delivering some lunchtime reggae and soul.
Expect 25 acts playing across two music stages, a smouldering hot US style low ‘n’ slow BBQ and craft beer bars.
Grillstock also features the now legendary Chilli-Eating Competition as well as the mouth-watering Rib-Eating, Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing, and French's Mustard hot-dog eating competitions and the informative and entertaining BBQ academy.
Weekend tickets are priced at £40 with a Saturday ticket priced at £30, and a Sunday ticket priced at £25.
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 at Silverstone in June, and in Bristol in July.
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.
