Meatstock Is Coming Back To Sydney For 2018

Forks at the ready folks, everyone’s favourite two-day meat-filled festival is heading back to Sydney and our stomachs are ready. Meatstock will be taking over the Sydney Showground for one weekend this May and that means you’ll be copping all of the meat you want. This one is brought to you by the letter ‘B’ with barbeque, bourbon, beer, bands, beards, barbers and pretty much everything else starting with the letter ‘B’ you can think of (almost).

You can expect all of meaty-goodness, all weekend long. Think international Pitmaster extraordinaires like Hillbilly Wes and Big Moe Cason who’ll be teaching us mere Sydney siders how to BBQ like a boss. There’ll also be every sauce under the sun to douse your meat in—plus a billion (near enough) sauces to buy and take home too. Meanwhile, the music will be courtesy of legends like the Davidson Brothers and Tex Perkins and you know that’s a good thing.

There’ll also be a big meaty battle between over 50 teams hailing from all over the country and they’ll be battling it out for a chill $8,000 in cash and prizes. Plus, there’ll be 20 butchers going head to head and a competition dedicated to finding the best burgers, wings, steak and bacon.

This red hot line up is next lev so quit messin’ around and head here and grab your tickets for Meatstock 2018.

Remember: you don’t make friends with salad.
