Let us bring the show to you on 4th, 5th and 6th September 2020

Every year at the end of the summer, hordes of food lovers descend on London’s historic Tobacco Dock to join some of the world’s best live-fire chefs for a weekend of unforgettable food cooked over sustainably-sourced, top-quality wood and charcoal.
You may have come for the food, but you stay for the tunes, the good times, the friends you make, and the skills you learn from the legends who grace the show’s stages and grills. If you wake up the next morning with the smell of smoke in your hair and the lingering flavour of rendered fat on your fingers, congratulations: you’ve done Meatopia right.

Anyone who’s been to Meatopia knows that there aren’t many things that can dampen its flames, but as it turns out a global pandemic is one of them.

Despite having to postpone Meatopia 2020, we simply couldn’t bear to let the weekend pass without marking the occasion, so we’re ramping up the #MeatopiaAtHome Instagram cookalongs to bring a 360° taste of the festival to your homes via the magic of Instagram.

Festival weekend
4th, 5th and 6th September 2020

Tune in for a weekend-long schedule of cookalongs with chefs, Cutting Room-style demos, music and more. We’ve left no stone unturned in our efforts to recreate the good vibes, good times and excellent flavours as best we can.

A full schedule of events to tune in to will be dropped ahead of the weekend, but you can follow along with the build up on our Instagram – turn on notifications to make sure you don’t miss a moment.

In the meantime, you can get yourself excited about our return in 2021 by entering our competition to win three-day passes for you and five friends, letting you loose on all the festival has to offer for the full weekend. To find out how to enter, click here.

Don’t forget you can also check out our #MeatopiaAtHome cookalong series, sponsored by Frontier, which includes recipes from our favourite fire-cooking chefs that were due to cook at the festival this year. There’s also a series of Hacks to Bring the Heat in partnership with TABASCO UK, who’ve brought even more world-class chefs and their skills to our Instagram feed. All that and more can be found in the digital iteration of our infamous onsite festival newspaper The Meatopian.

More soon… in the meantime, stay safe and keep it 🔥
