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.
Our musical honeypot of a house was one of Kent’s foremost rock & roll club venues in the 1960s, that in its glory days it played host to Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, Manfred Mann, The Yardbirds and many more…so it feels only right that the sounds of Smoked & Uncut should shake up once more!
Over the years we've partied with Jools Holland, Professor Green, with Supergrass joining us last festival season!
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. Feasting tickets must be purchased IN ADDITION to a festival entrance ticket.
English indie icons Razorlight, best known for their singles "Golden Touch" and "America", will be headlining the INEOS Grenadier Main Stage, 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.
Alongside Razorlight, 80s rock legend John Illsley of Dire Straits will be supporting with his back catalogue of the band's greatest hits!
Don't forget your Cashless Wristband Payment Refunds!
For all our festi-goers if you topped up through your Personal Account you will receive a fully automatic refund of any money you don't spend at the festival! This service will refund you directly back to your credit or debit card.
Automatic refunds will be initiated 48 hours after the event and you can expect to receive funds between 7-10 working days, depending on your bank.
If you have only topped up at a Top Up Station with cash or card and did not create an online Personal Account, you will need to retrospectively create one to get any unspent money refunded. You will need your Wristband to do this.
Take a break from all the festi-fun in the field and head inside to the hotel restaurant for a sit down feast! Angela Hartnett will be at the helm across the Kitchens cooking up a four-course feasting menu with Lisa Goodwin-Allen.
Or head to our field kitchen serving up PIG classics rustled up by our very own PIG Chef Apprentices and Group Chef Director James Golding.
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!)
If you are travelling from a distance to attend, THE PIG team will be able to suggest suitable accommodation in the local area.

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.
