BEER & BBQ FESTIVAL FIRES UP IN 2021
Adelaide’s Beer & BBQ Festival will rise from the ashes of 2020 in all its glory at the Adelaide Showgrounds from Friday 23rd until Sunday 25th July.
The brewery line-up will be announced soon but the festival organisers say “there are heaps of heavy hitters that have been itching to get to SA over the past year and will be making their BBF debut”.
Returning with a monumental music line-up, of over 100 local and national brewers, cider makers, distillers and winemakers, the biggest BBQ and chef line-up ever hosted at the event, and all emceed by Australia’s infamous outlaw country-rocker, musician, radio & TV personality, Henry Wagons.
The Smith Street Band lead the charge on the music line-up for their first South Australian show in over two years. Festival-goers will also have the chance to be the first to catch tracks from their 2020 studio release, Don’t Waste Your Anger played live.
Sharing the stage with The Smith Street Band are Australian punk-rock legends Bodyjar and 28 days, outlaw country-rock outfit Wagons, Melbourne’s indie-pop darling Jess Locke, straight out of Newtown, SCABZ and long time Cherry Bar resident vinyl slinger DJ Mermaid, with heaps more to be announced in the second lineup announcement.
2021 will also see the fattest, juiciest BBQ lineup ever assembled in SA with some of the best proponents of BBQ from around the country, including low and slow via Mornington Peninsula’s Red Gum BBQ and Sydney’s Black Iron Smokers. Food truck legend Raph Rashid, arguably the man that created Aussie food truck culture with the original burger truck Beatbox Kitchen, will be passing the Big Koala on his way from Melbourne, as will Argentinian charcoal masters Señor BBQ. The travelling Filipino coal BBQ party of Hoy Pinoy, round out the interstate guests.
South Australian BBQ talent will be plentiful with BBF favourites Boston Bay Smallgoods x Smokin Grillers, Ragi’s Indian BBQ, Izakaya Kevin and heaps more to be announced.
