Firestarter Party 2017

Friday 30th June – 19:30pm – 10:30pm

Anyone who has purchased a Pit Crew ticket for the festival is invited to come out on Friday night and kick off the weekend of meat, music & mayhem with us.

Come hang out with the legend Dr.BBQ, the Grillstock founders & our judges to drink beer, eat meat, maybe dance a little and watch the teams fire up their coals for our annual pre-festival party night.

By way of entertainment, we have three of our favourite slide guitar players coming together for an exclusive Grillstock Special one-off trio set – that’s Big Joe Bone, Sicknote Steve and Benny Guitar Carr. Get ready for some foot stomping, deep down & dirty blues action. It’s going to be epic.

Straight after the blues we have Grillstock superstar DJ BBQ spinning the decks of awesomeness.

The bar will be open and we’ll have a smoker full of meat to fill your bellies.

We’ll also have the Dallas Fort Worth Rodeo primed and ready to rumble.

All you need to do to gain entry on Friday night is show your Pit Crew ticket at the festival box office. You can also collect your tokens there.

The party takes place in the new King of the Grill competition area in Millennium Square (the one with the big mirror ball in it)

See y’all there!
