Main Stage - Sponsored by Nokia Mix Radio

Grillstock tackles music with the same lip smackin’ gusto that it does ribs, brisket and pork butt. The main stage hosts a line-up that reflects a deep affection for American roots music lanced through with a distinctly British sense of humour and boisterous attitude. The stage is lovingly curated by one of the small team that programmes Glastonbury’s main stages.

Vintage Trouble - Headline Saturday - 8:20pm

Vintage Trouble - Headline at Manchester Grillstock Festival


The Ruen Brothers - Saturday - 6:50pm

Inspired by a love of early 60’s beat music.


The Future Shape of Sound - Saturday - 5:10pm

A unique cocktail of Northern Soul, scratchy blues, 1960s soundtracks and vintage erotica.


Rob Heron and the Teapad Orchestra - Saturday - 2:30pm

Their style is more eclectic than most, influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs.


Federal Charm - Saturday - 12:20pm

Federal charm invest swaggering riffs, sleazy slide flourishes and cinder-raw vocals with a confidence that is utterly winning.


Hayseed Dixie - Headline Sunday - 4:50pm

A very welcome return for one of Grillstock’s favourite bands. These native sons of East Tennessee decided, after putting away a hell of a lot of whisky, that the "Lost Highway" of Hank Williams and the "Highway To Hell" of AC/DC were the same damned road.


The Urban Voodoo Machine - Sunday - 3pm

A unique brand of Bourbon Soaked Gypsy Blues Bop’n’Stroll…


The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band - Sunday - 1:20pm

Delta blues and hillbilly fervour combined with musical acuity that’s sharp as razor wire.


Richie Syrett - Sunday - 12pm

A singer/songwriter whose typically melodic and ragged style makes a grateful nod to a number of rootsy influences whilst all the time maintaining his own signature sound.
