THE PIG - BEEN & GONE!

Saturday 16th June 12pm-11pm

Tickets SOLD OUT

The festival (BEEN & GONE!)

From humble beginnings, Smoked & Uncut at THE PIG has grown up from acoustic Sunday sessions in the bar to a buzzing celebration of food and music!

THE PIG's headliner is John Illsley of Dire Straits and his band.

Nestled in the heart of the ancient New Forest, chill out under the trees and soak in the sounds of the summer whilst sipping on your favourite tipple…or two.

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.

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.

John Illsley of Dire Straits and his band

The bass guitarist of Dire Straits has had a remarkable musical journey since 1977, selling over 120 million albums and picking up a few Grammy’s on the way as well as an Ivor Novello award in 1988 for “ Outstanding contribution to British Music”

In April of this year Dire Straits will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which John has said to be “a great honour”.

The show will feature all of the well known songs from Dire Straits such as Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing and Brothers in Arms plus songs from John’s latest album “Long Shadows” which was released in May last year.

Land of the Giants

Land of the Giants

Since 2009, Land of the Giants have been pulling crowds to tents to groove until they sweat with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiasm. A brass section that will make you grin from ear to ear, heavy toe-tapping basslines and Andy Quick's sensuous, soaring vocals will make you wonder why you've never danced your ass off to The Giants before.

"Feel-good music; it's accessible, it's danceable, and it's rhythmic."
