2017 Music Line-Up Released (well, most of it)


The announcement that Bristol’s meat fans have been waiting for is finally here. Grillstock have today released details of their summer festival music line-up covering three stages.

From it’s early roots deep seated in southern sounds, bluegrass and twisted Americana, Grillstock has grown over the years into a large scale, fully fledged music festival in its own right.

Highlights of the 2017 line-up include:

CRAIG CHARLES DJ SET – The Radio 6 DJ and all round King of Funk, brings his special blend of funk and soul to close-out the Grillstock main stage on the Saturday night. Action packed and full of jams

HOT 8 BRASS BAND – Hot 8 blend hip-hop, jazz and funk with their native New Orleans brass sounds. Check out their take on Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’.

HAYSEED DIXIE – Grillstock Festival favorite and the closest thing to a house band that we have. Creators of the musical genre “Rockgrass”, Hayseed Dixie are all about rip-snorting, hillbilly covers of hard rock songs. Their hillbilly version of ‘Highway to Hell’ is better than AC/DC’s

THE DARKNESS – Self confessed “world’s most epic rock band”, The Darkness will be headlining Sunday evening. Air guitars at the ready!!


In addition to the main festival stage in the amphitheatre, the Dive Bar offers a more intimate underground club experience with an awesome mix of live bands, slide guitars, banjo picking and late night DJ sets. Highlights include Son of Dave, DJ Cheeba, Sicknote Steve and the Dirty Diesel Outlaw Orchestra

Grillstock 2017 also sees the return of of the now legendary MeatRave. Taking place as the sun goes down in and around the grill-pits and smokers of the BBQ competition, MeatRave is the best party you’ve ever been too, the most amazing wedding disco without the hassle of a wedding, the best after-party without the tiredness and weirdo in the corner, you know every tune and your dancing feet never get sore.
