Event Details

Is it a food festival? Is it a music festival? Even better... it's both, but with a retro spin. So bring your appetite and your dancing shoes!

Meats & Beats is a Smorgasbord of street food - mainly of the sticky, juicy, BBQ'd meat variety - mixed with your favourite music from the past five decades. It's as much about music as it is about food, but most importantly it's about having a great night out with friends.

Every hour the music changes decade, starting with the pop classics of the 70, working our way through the disco anthems of the 80s, dance tunes of the 90s and teen pop bands of the noughties until we reach 2017.

Sizzling steaks, towering sauce-dripping burgers, racks of sticky ribs, buckets of wings and chilli dogs are just some of the options you can tuck into at communal feasting tables in the main hall. Mash that with your song requests, wine, craft beers, cocktails, eating competitions and retro TV Game Shows - including Blind Date, Catchphrase and Blankety Blank - and you've got the recipe for a finger-licking, hands in the air night out.
