MEATOPIA ON THE DAY

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Each day between 20 – 30 Chefs create a unique dish and cook it right in front of you, over fire. You eat as many as you like using Meatbucks to redeem dishes. You while away the afternoon: eating, drinking, dancing and sharing stories – generally soaking up the atmosphere.

WHERE CAN I GET MEATBUCKS?

You can buy them in advance with your tickets, but they will be readily available on-site from MeatBuck points or the roving MeatBucaneers.

WHAT ABOUT THE DRINKS?

Meatopia has a wide variety of drinks available from any of our bars and can be purchased on-site with a card.

HOW DO I PAY?

Meatopia is now a cashless festival, so please bring your bank cards and contactless payment devices and leave your change at home.

OTHER INFO

WILL FOOD BE SERVED ALL DAY?

The coals will be burning bright from gate opening time until it runs out… (same as before) so don’t come too late and miss the most popular dishes.

CAN I GET IN EARLY WITH MY EARLY BIRD TICKET?

Yes, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday Early Bird ticket holders can get into Tobacco Dock half an hour early. The grills will not start serving until the official gate opening time but you can get a drink and use the time to plan your route and maybe meet some of the chefs before the show starts.

WILL THERE BE ANY VEGETARIAN DISHES?

Meatopia is probably not great for vegetarians or vegans, though everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the music, bars, demos and atmosphere.

CAN I BRING MY CHILDREN?

For the health and safety of everyone on site, we have to limit the number of under 18s at the festival. You will need a children’s ticket for any children coming to the show.

CAN I BRING MY DOG?

No, sorry. Dogs and fresh meat don’t mix very well so only guide dogs are allowed at Meatopia.

WILL IT BE AN AWESOME WEEKEND OF MEAT, DRINK, FIRE AND MUSIC?

Yes.
