There's a waft of BBQ in the air at Albert Square. There's a man panting over a pint of milk. There's the bustle of live music and a man dressed as a giant hot-dog dancing in a peculiar circle. Can you tell what it is yet? Returning this year to our fair Albert Square, Grillstock looks set to make vegetarians shiver and shake as they bring their meaty wares to the city for another two days of avid BBQ antics and meaty-musts.

Join Grillstock this June at Albert Square for one of the best meat themed festival this side of the darn equator.

Heading to Central Manchester for a plush plot on Albert Square this 28th & 29th June, Grillstock promise two days of 'music, meat and mayhem' for those with a penchant for plush meats and mardy party antics in the Summer sun. But what can you rib-nuzzlers expect this June? From their infamous low'n'slow style BBQ eating competitions, the chance to get your taste-buds sozzled at a chilli-off, over 40 bands for your lugholes to peruse and a cracking selection of 8 DJs playing across a plot of four stages; Grillstock is set to be jam packed with activity.

Host to BBQ competitions, wing-offs and chilli chowing that will leave you sobbing something silly, it's anyone's game at this year's Grillstock.

But that's not all my fine meat-faring friend. With over 17,000 people set to wade their way through stalls of delicious wares, get-me-some-of-that glazes, live cooking demonstrations, craft workshops and those Brooklyn Brewery boys boasting their hot-to-trot hops and craft beer by the bar, Grillstock is more than a meat market, it's a down right meat mission. Prepare to wiggle your toosh to some sweet Cajun and American, muzzle your mouth with the finest in BBQ wares and enjoy a weekend of unadulterated, you guessed it, 'meat, music and mayhem'.
