Meatstock Melbourne - The Music and Barbecue Festival

Meatstock is back in Melbourne with its biggest line-up of entertainment yet. 18-19 March, 2023 at the Melbourne Showgrounds.

At the heart of Meatstock is an 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, 2 Smokin Arabs, Black Iron Smokers, RG’s Food truck and many more.

This year Meatstock will also feature the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) for some extreme edge of your seat entertainment. Buckle up for the toughest 8 seconds in sports and find out what it means to be cowboy.

From cowbells to dumbbells, get primal in the Strongman arena, with some of the biggest weapons in Australia battling it out in to be Australia’s Strongest Man and Woman with events including Viking Deadlift, Max Monster Dumbbells, Stone series and more!

Over 50 teams from across Australia will be battling it out at the Heat Beads Melbourne Barbecue Wars to be crowned the best barbecuers in the state. Over 20 butchers will also be going head to head on stage competing to be crowned Victoria’s best butcher. Plus the Street BBQ King of the Grill competition will pit barbecue teams against each other cooking steak, wings, bacon, hot dogs and burgers. 

If this still isn’t enough you can park up and watch competitors live on stage in the hilarious Beard and Mo Wars and must-see competitive eating competitions.

Last, but definitely not least, Meatstock has all your senses covered, putting together some of the best Australian musicians on the Pirate Life live stage.
