Festival Experience

Grillstock is a two-day festival of meat, music & mayhem.

The 3rd Manchester Grillstock Festival is set to be a rip-roaring, foot tapping, meat eating, beer swilling weekend, with our name firmly established with BBQ lovers in the city after a sell-out 2014 festival. The 2015 edition will take place on 30th and 31st May. 

With over 25 acts playing across two music stages, a smokin’ hot US style low ‘n’ slow BBQ competition and fantastic craft beer bars, Grillstock attracts over 25,000 meat and music lovers seeking some proper Southern hospitality to Bristol and Manchester each year.

Music Line Up

Nothing goes better with BBQ than good music and we're delighted to announce that Grillstock 2014 will feature some of the very best in rockabilly, bluegrass, hip-hop, country and other foot stompin’ rhythms of the American south.

King of the Grill

With 12 teams competing for the coveted ‘Grillstock King Of The Grill 2014′ trophy over the course of the weekend, you’ll witness first-hand the skills of the very best BBQ Pitmasters and Grill-Chefs from the UK, Europe and the US.
