The top six UK food festivals

Grillstock Festival 8 to 9 June, Manchester  

Following the sizzling success of this BBQ fest in Bristol, the weekend of music and meat debuts in Manchester's Albert Square on 8 and 9 June. A huge US style barbecue competition will see 12 teams battling it out to be crowned King of the 'Q'. Spice fiend festival goers can dare to enter the chilli eating contest and those with a big appetite can indulge in the rib eating competition. Music comes in the form of headliners Kitty, Daisy and Lewis – a rhythm and blues hillbilly sibling trio – and a mix of funk, soul, hip-hop and jazz from other performers.
