Following a sold-out show last year, Rock n Ribs Festival returns in July to its new home at Wincanton Racecourse.

The line-up for 2022 is a significant step up. An extra stage has been added making three in total. Bands include leading tributes to AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac and Aerosmith alongside some of the UK’s best country acts: Katy Hurt, Danny McMahon and Male Country Singer of the Year Bob Fitzgerald. There’s even a band on tour from the USA called Left Arm Tan!

Rock n Ribs Festival is so much more than just a music festival. There’s Europe’s only ride-on monster truck, Red Dragon, over 250 American vehicles including several recently seen in Hollywood blockbusters, family wrestling shows, infamous eating challenges, big rig driving experiences, Mini Movie Trucks for kids to drive, fair rides, trade stalls and much more.

Food takes centre stage this year with a range of incredible BBQ from Texas Rocks with their new fire engine smoker, the American School Bus Rib Shack and a variety of stalls which will transport you to the smokehouses of America’s south.

“We were blown away with the response to last year’s show and can’t wait to take it to the next level in 2022 with a hedonistic American extravaganza which is not only a lot of fun but unique too.”

Day tickets are from £10 for adults, £2 for children (4-16) and free for infants (0-3). Family and weekend tickets are available too but camping tickets have nearly sold out. Tickets can be purchased online at rocknribsfestival.co.uk.
