THE PIG-at Bridge Place - Saturday 12th August 2023

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.
