Bringing meat, mayhem and music to the city for the sixth year, Grillstock Bristol will feature the hip hop stylings of De La Soul on Saturday night, supported by Welsh favourites and undisputed stars of last year’s Manchester festival, Goldie Lookin Chain. Local boys from Bath, neo-soul and rock band The Heavy will headline the Sunday in Bristol’s Harbourside Amphitheatre, with DJ Yoda returning to the Bar Stage after a storming set in 2014.

Festival goers can expect a smouldering hot US style low 'n' slow BBQ competition, chilli-pepper and hot-dog eating competitions, over bands and DJ’s playing across two music stages. The US style ‘low and slow’ BBQ competition puts the teams through their paces as they show off their culinary skills over the smoky coals and battle it out to be crowned King of the Grill. The competition allows festival goers the chance to interact with the teams, taste the food and experience their passion for authentic barbecue. Increasing the heat, US BBQ veteran Dr BBQ aka Ray Lampe will oversee the judging.

Food fans can also check out the Weber BBQ Academy, imported craft beer in a New York Dive Bar, bourbon dens and village of BBQ traders serving up pit-smoked meaty treats and Grillstock’s very own Pale Ale, which was created especially for BBQ.

Sunday tickets remain ONLY.
