THE PIG-near Bath

Saturday 30th June 12pm-10pm

The festival

Set against a backdrop of the rolling Mendip Hills and quintessentially English views of this undiscovered part of Somerset, Smoked & Uncut at THE PIG near Bath is not your average English festival! More glamour than grunge, you can expect a line-up of handpicked classic and contemporary artists, home-made festi-food, local ales and the odd cocktail.

THE PIG-near Bath headliner is Paul Carrack.

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try one of our pop up feasting tents!

Chef Angela Hartnett and some of her chef friends will be hosting long table, family-style 3 course feasts in The Field Kitchen pop up, and Chef Mark Hix will be paying homage to the British love of a classic Indian takeaway with his Ruby Murray House, 2 courses in a canteen-style pop up! Tickets can be bought in advance for pop up feasts, and must be bought in addition to a standard entry ticket.

Why not wake up to views across THE PIG near Bath’s very own deer park and spend the weekend with us? Make the most of the festival vibes and spectacular surroundings and sleep under the stars in your very own bell-tent. Cosy up in the glamping village, tuck into Chef Angela Hartnett’s Italian banquet (maybe even share stories with her around the campfire over an Aperol Spritz), and dance like no one is watching to good old fashioned rock and roll!

The festival will last just that little bit longer this year, with music and festivities going on into the evening until 10pm.

There is no camping at Smoked & Uncut, but if you would like to make a weekend of it why not book a room with the hotel directly and get your festival tickets included in your room rate.

Introducing our Main Stage artists...

Paul Carrack

Paul Carrack

Paul is a legend within the music industry, having worked with and written for some of the biggest names out there.

A true national treasure and one of pop’s best kept secrets, not everyone knows that the Sheffield-born musician’s outstanding 40-plus-year career has included working with legendary artists including Elton John, Eric Clapton, Squeeze, Roxy Music, the Eagles, Diana Ross, The Smiths and Nick Lowe.

Hailed “The Man with the Golden Voice” in the 2012 BBC4 documentary of his career, Carrack’s is the stunning voice behind many significant British pop songs of the past few decades: the blue-eyed soul hit ‘How Long’ by his band Ace, ‘Tempted’ by Squeeze and Mike & the Mechanics ‘The Living Years’. The first song he wrote and sang was ‘How Long’; it was also the first cover he ever had, with Bobby Womack’s version – the first of many of his songs to be recorded by other artists.

Danny Goffey

Pub violence. Jeremy Kyle. Religion, crap package holidays and the Dickensian adventures of Cosmic Bob. When most artists decide it’s time to shed the mask and release an album under their own name, it’s usually a sign that they’ve discovered themselves in song and are ready to splay their soul wide open for their adoring fans’ perusal. Not Danny Goffey.

The Wandering Hearts

The Wandering Hearts

The Wandering Hearts kicked off 2018 with the release of their thrilling debut album, Wild Silence, on Decca Records. The album spent three weeks at number one on the UK Official Country Albums Chart and remains in the top 10. In February, the band won the coveted Bob Harris Emerging Artist Award at The UK Americana Awards 2018, a prize handpicked by the legendary broadcaster himself.

A tale that seems too unbelievable to be true, The Wandering Hearts met almost by chance and were discovered 26 minutes after uploading their first ever demo to SoundCloud, recorded only the second time the band had met to rehearse together. Their shared passion for Americana, vocal harmonies and gin drew them together two years ago, and one afternoon in an empty bar room of the Earl Haig Hall in London's Crouch End, The Wandering Hearts were born.
