A celebration of meat, fire, music & drink

Meatopia is a festival of high quality, ethically sourced meat, live music and free-flowing beer; cooked up by chefs from around the world; from as far afield as Argentina, Sweden and Canada.

A weekend-long love affair of meat, Meatopia UK has become a legendary event for BBQ lovers.

Strictly off-limits for vegetarians, this years event will take place in London’s Tobacco Dock on the first weekend of September- 2nd, 3rd & 4th.

There will be butchery classes, food stalls and chef demos from renowned chefs such as Richard H Turner, who brings the event to the London from the US.

To learn more about previous events (Meatopia is now in its 4th year) check out these videos from 2015 & 2014 respectively.


Music for this years event comes from Professor Green on the Friday Night (over 18’s only) Late Shift and Norman Jay, amongst others on Sunday, which will have more of a family friendly, carnival feel.

Meatopia is at Tobacco Dock, Wapping Lane, E1W 2SF. Tickets can be booked via the website.
