Meats & Beats is best described as a 'carnivores playground' set against a soundtrack of all the cheesiest, 'hands in the air' tunes from the last five decades. Where twerk meets jerk, burritos meet Blondie, and wings meet Wham! It's as much about music as it is about food, but most importantly it's about having an unforgettable night out with your mates.
Every hour the music changes decade, starting with the pop classics of the 70s, working our way through the disco anthems of the 80s, dance tunes of the 90s and teen pop bands of the noughties until we reach 2018.
Sizzling steaks, jerk chicken, slow cooked BBQ brisket, pulled pork brioche buns, meat-loaded nachos, chicken wings and meat-packed burritos are just some of the dishes you can tuck into at the outdoor Street Food Village. Confirmed collaborations include Bonnie Burrito, Meat Stack, Rost, Fat Boy, Shanty Town and Tasty Buns Bakery.
Pop-up bars from Stewart Brewing, Edinburgh Beer Factory, Old Poison and Summerhall will serve craft beers, cocktails, wines and prosecco, and we have hotdog-eating competitions and retro playground games for a trip-down-memory-lane entertainment.
So put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a lip-smacking, lip-syncing, tummy & shape busting night out to remember!
