Barbecue festival Meatstock has announced its 2023 return, sharing the musical line-up for each of its outings in Sydney, Melbourne and Toowoomba.
The meat and music festival made its Toowoomba debut in April of this year, adding a new location to Meatstock’s traditional circuits in Sydney and Melbourne. The festival will return to all three sites next year, beginning with Meatstock’s two-day run at Melbourne Showgrounds between March 18 and 19, 2023.
The following month, the festival will return to Toowoomba Showgrounds on April 14 and 15, before wrapping up its run at the Sydney Showgrounds from May 5 to 7. At each site, Meatstock will host a range of unique experiences including bull runs, burger eating contests, and beard and moustache competitions.
Alongside its food-focused festivities, Meatstock has also announced the musical line-ups for each of its three locations. Melbourne’s roster is headlined by country music band Darlinghurst, as well as fellow bands The Pleasures, The Surreal McCoys and Davidson Brothers. Meatstock’s Melbourne line-up is rounded-out by Frank Sultana, Queenie, Rose Zita Falko and The Smith & Western Jury. See Meatstock’s full Melbourne line-up below.
