If you’re a fan of music and meat, then Meatstock is the festival you’ve been waiting for.
Meatstock is a two-day music and barbecue festival that started in Sydney but spread its basted barbecued wings to Auckland in February 2018. Held at the ASB Showgrounds over the weekend of the 16th-17th February, the protein-filled event promises to serve up the best of the best bands and barbecues, butchers, bourbon and beer.
You’ll get a chance to witness the intense barbecue, butcher and barber wars, which will see the city’s best take the crown, as well as learn the meaty tricks of the trade in demonstrations and workshops.
If eating barbecue rather than making it is more your thing, a tribe of barbecue-inspired food trucks will be there to keep your belly full and happy. And, since Meatstock is set to take place at such a sizzling hot time, they have craft beer from Liberty Brewing to help you stay hydrated.
Sound pretty damn awesome? Thought so.
