A barbecue, craft beer and music festival, all rolled into one.

Still making plans for the Easter long weekend? How does a barbecue, craft beer and music festival sound? Wollongong is getting its first of the kind when Crafted LIVE takes over MacCabe Park on Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16.

They're taking their barbecue very seriously at this one, with a 30-team competition going down, sanctioned by the Australian Barbecue Alliance and hosted by the Shank Brothers (from Channel Seven's Aussie Barbecue Heroes). On the craft brew side, the festival will bring together 20 of the best brewers in Australia, from Wollongong locals Illawarra Brewing Co and Shark Island Brewing to Sydney favourites Wayward Brewing and Young Henrys, and even nabbing Australia's SA much-loved Pirate Life.

Live music will be rocking through the day and night, with Melbourne rocker Tex Perkins and blues musician Ash Grunwald headlining. It's an unbeatable trifecta that will feed soul, mind and belly and it's only a short train ride away. Easter plans sorted.
