Grillstock Festival - Bristol

JUNE 7TH - 8TH 2014

A two day festival of meat, music & mayhem.

With a smouldering hot US style low 'n' slow BBQ competition, over 40 bands and 8 DJ’s playing across four music stages, Grillstock is the hottest festival in the UK, attracting over 17, 000 meat and music lovers seeking some southern hospitality.

Get down to the finest Americana rock, funk, blues and country sounds. Foot stomping rockgrass legends and Grillstock favourites, Hayseed Dixie, top the Sunday bill at both festivals with Vintage Trouble taking to the stage to headline on Saturday night in Albert Square. The Bristol Saturday headline is the one and only Fun Lovin' Criminals.  

Bristol Harbourside - 7th-8th June

Think locally, act hillbilly.
