SYDNEY barbecue lovers have spoken and their message is clear: they want a meat festival that caters to their every need.
Meatstock has heard the call and is in the midst of preparing for what is now a sell out crowd on its opening day. Taking place throughout the Valentines Day weekend, there are now only a limited number of tickets left for the conclusion of the festival on the Sunday.
Festival Directors Jay Beaumont and Simon Luke said time is running out for meat eaters. “Both days have their own distinct flavour and Sunday definitely has plenty to offer,” they said. “People of all ages still have the chance to get involved but they should buy a ticket as soon as possible to ensure they get to experience not only the barbecue portion of the festival but everything else that will be going on. We are looking forward to seeing a big crowd on both days.”
In addition to a myriad of mouth-watering cuts, Meatstock is also staging some top class entertainment throughout the weekend. With Valentine’s day providing the backdrop to the second half of the festival, there will be no love lost between local and interstate butchers as they go head to head live on stage under the watchful eye of guest judge and barbecue beauty, Jess Pryles.
They will be accompanied by the barnstorming sounds of Henry Wagons and Hussy Hicks who headline Sunday’s line up of bands.The day will also feature the final stages of the Sydney Barbecue Wars as well as a Meat Barbecue expo.
