It all started with a guy and guitar in the garden 10 years ago… 10 YEARS AGO! How did that happen?! Well… they do say time flies when you are having fun.
That’s right, this summer we will be celebrating 10 years of Smoked & Uncut, and boy oh boy will we be throwing a hooley with 2 festival dates in July and August 2023.
A big old bash in the Forest at Lime Wood, so if you have been a regular festi-goer at THE PIG, Brockenhurst then this one’s for you, and it’s three times a charm over at THE PIG-at Bridge Place, with our third festival in Kent.
Who's playing at Lime Wood and THE PIG-at Bridge Place
Multi-award winning, Grammy nominated Harlem-born singer Kelis, best known for her smash-hit 'Milkshake', will be coming to Lime Wood's yard with heaps of Y2K energy. Embracing the sounds of the 00's, you can expect a serious stage show with sing-along summer tunes with a side of nostalgia that is guaranteed to get the whole crowd dancing!
British pop singer and songwriter, Gabrielle will be taking to the INEOS Grenadier Main Stage alongside Kelis. Having sold millions of records around the world, Gabrielle is back celebrating 30 years of the multi-platinum selling single 'Dreams' and this summer will be throwing us back to the best of the 90's with her sing-along anthems including 'Out Of Reach', 'Rise' and 'Sunshine'.
English indie icons Razorlight, best known for their singles "Golden Touch" and "America", will be headlining the INEOS Grenadier Main Stage at THE PIG-at Bridge Place, stirring up the rock ’n’ roll soul of THE PIG-at Bridge Place. Expect throwback anthems that encompass all the laid-back vibes summer has to offer.
The 80s rock legend who rose to fame as the bass guitarist of the critically acclaimed band Dire Straits will be joining at THE PIG-at Bridge Place. The BRIT and Grammy Award winner will be playing a back catalogue of the bands greatest hits!

SATURDAY 8TH JULY 2023
While away a lazy sunshine-soaked Saturday in the fields surrounding Lime Wood. The long days of July lend themselves perfectly to al fresco feasting, day-long drinking and sleeping under the stars.
SATURDAY 12TH AUGUST 2023
Our musical honeypot was one of Kent’s foremost rock & roll clubs in the 1960s, that in its glory days it played host to Led Zeppelin, The Kinks and many more… so it feels only right to bring back some serious sounds!
For those that have never joined us, the Smoked & Uncut festivals are your classic English summer parties with a rock ‘n’ roll twist; home-grown countryside carnivals for music-lovers, foodies and families, set in the grounds and surrounding fields of our hotels… for those that have, well you get it – so dust off the glad rags, bring on the glitter and get that festi-date firmly in your diary!
Smoked & Uncut is so much more than just live music – you can expect festi-food stalls, bars, The Smoked & Uncut shopping Bazaar, The Field Spa, The Den Kid’s Area, Chef hosted feasts with Angela Hartnett and THE PIG’s James Golding and a whole lotta surprises still up our sleeve for the big birthday!!!
Take a trip down memory lane with us... 10 years of feasting with local friends and suppliers, dancing the day away to some show-stopping headliners, enjoying a tipple or two and making the most of a summers day (rain or shine!)
Whether you're the hot spot in town for a bite to eat, a local seller or looking for some work next summer, get in touch! We're on the lookout for small local businesses, food stalls and festival team members to get involved with Smoked & Uncut 2023.
Send us an email at email@example.com and one of our team members will be in touch!
We are also on the hunt for WaterAid volunteers to hand out Belu water-refills to festival-goers and keep the toilets of Smoked & Uncut sparkling clean. All whilst raising vital funds for WaterAid’s work to make sure everyone has access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. You can sign up to hear when volunteer opportunities open in January here.
Just what you need to get you and the gang to a festival in the British countryside!
The Smoked & Uncut tour leader is back for 2023, the INEOS Grenadier, and is going to take us off-road and into the wild. We are plotting the route, filling it with festi-kit, starting the engine and heading for the heathlands and woodland.
Built for every day, built for work, built for off-road, built for the wild… see what adventure awaits you!
