After debuting in one of Australia's rural meat capitals, Meatstock uncovered a new territory of barbecue fandom, and is bringing the music and entertainment festival back to both city and country, announcing the Sydney, Melbourne and Toowoomba events.

In Sydney (May 5-7), Grinspoon, Jebediah, Kingswood, Caitlin Harnett & The Pony Boys, Amber Lawrence, The Pleasures, Lozz Benson, Cruisin Deuces, Lady Lyon, Zane Banks Band, Frank Sultana, Harry Foxton and The Sweet Jelly Rolls will take the Meatstock stage.

Melbourne (March 18-19) will play host to Brad Cox, Amber Lawrence, Darlinghurst, The Pleasures, The Surreal McCoys, Davidson Bros, James Ellis and the Jealous Guys, Frank Sultana, Queenie, Rose Zita Falko and The Smith & Western Jury.

Meatstock will not only present their usual worldclass live music acts, BBQ pitmasters, decadent food trucks, expo stores and beer, but be host to an unconventional, yet wildly entertaining line-up of never been seen before spectacles, including the Professional Bull Riding arena as well as Strong Man and Women competitions.

At the heart of Meatstock is a huge unmatched line-up of BBQ pit-masters and authentic ‘low and slow’ barbecue, cooking on some of Australia’s biggest and craziest smokers and barbecues. Vendors include Phat Boyz Smoking, Smokin Hot ’N Saucy, Barbecue Mafia, Black Iron Smokers, Hoy Pinoy and many more.

If this still isn’t enough, you can park up and watch the beard and moe wars, burger eating contest and butcher wars for some hilarious, yet competitive entertainment.
