Friends Jon Finch and Ben Merrington, inspired by their travels in the States and disillusioned by the poor interpretation of BBQ in the UK, fired their way on the festival scene in 2010 when they set out to celebrate BBQ culture in all its various forms. The Grillstock festival was born.
It became an instant success and is now a well-known feature in the UK festival scene attracting over 10,000 visitors each summer. Since its inception, Grillstock has attracted affiliations, partnerships and sponsorship agreements with top brands.
In 2012, Bristol entrepreneur Gonzalo Trujillo joined and we set out to deliver the all year round BBQ experience and take it beyond the shores of Bristol.
Grillstock creates proper barbecue heaven
From our festivals to restaurants and products, our approach is the same. To instill the spirit of barbecue in each element, through authentic low and slow cooking techniques and flavours, combining our food with the music that inspired it and the people you share it with.
A true barbecue experience should be a combination of all these things, food with soul & purpose, true Grillstock culture.
Come get some Meat, Music & Mayhem.
