Following the sold out Saturday and Sunday sessions of last year, The Beer & BBQ Festival is set to make a huge return to the Adelaide Showgrounds in 2016.
Once again being hosted over three days, the festival already promises to be better than last year; boasting triple the number of food vendors and stacks of beer and cider producers (seriously, see below, there's everything but a lack of variety).
On top of this a few awesome musical acts have already been announced: Koral & The Goodbye Horses, Oisima, Panama, Shaolin Afronauts, The Gentlemens Record Club DJs, The John Steel Singers, The Montreals, The New Yorks and Wasted Wanderers, with further acts yet to be announced!
Of course, if you still need any sort of persuasion to attend, there's the pièce de résistance, the thing our lives revolve around (air and h20 are overrated forget about them), the food... THE BBQ! Duncan Welgemoed, Rodney Scott, Mary's Burgers, Africola, Comida, Gilbert Street Hotel, Golden Boy, Sneaky Pickle and more! (Give a few of those a Google, or don't your tastebuds may not be able to handle the anticipation).
When: July the 8th-10th.
Four sessions Friday 5pm - Midnight, Saturday 11am - 5pm, Saturday 5pm - Midnight and Sunday 11am - 6pm
Where: The Adelaide Showgrounds (Brick Dairy Pavilion and Grass Area)
