Grillstock Manchester will be headlined by legendary New York DJ Grandmaster Flash as well as purveyors of sexy music, riotous comedy, and sensational dancing the Cuban Bros. Grillstock favourite, the inimitable Levi Roots will also be on hand, delivering some lunchtime reggae and soul whilst indie rock band, The Heavy headline the Sunday in Albert Square.
Across Manchester, festival goers can expect a smouldering hot US style low ‘n’ slow BBQ competition, chilli-pepper and hot-dog eating competitions, over (40) bands and DJ’s playing across 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 & New York Dive Bar, bourbon dens and village of BBQ traders serving up pit-smoked meaty treats and our very own Pale Ale, which was created especially for BBQ.
