About Smoked & Uncut Festivals

Intimate home-grown festivals, not too far from home, that are just as much a celebration of food as they are music.

Want to make the most of summer by soaking up the sun outdoors and making memories with you and yours? Then hurry up and jump in feet first to our line-up of open-air parties; intimate home-grown festivals, not too far from home, that are just as much a celebration of food as they are music.

Smoked & Uncut 2019 saw 3 summer festival dates across THE PIG and Lime Wood hotels, set to an eclectic soundtrack, from folk to funk and rock’n’roll to reggae and with headliners Sister Sledge, The Wailers, Kaiser Chiefs, The Vaccines, Samm Henshaw, Imelda May and many more.

Following the whirlwind of 2020 we were unable to go ahead with our usual festivals, however 2021 saw the return of Smoked & Uncut once more, popping up at THE PIG-at Bridge Place, Kent, for the very first time with all the festi-fun but a smaller ‘Sunday-vibes’ shindig for its first appearance in the Garden of England with Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra headlining!

We are back in 2022 with our full-scale festivals, with four dates for you to pick from to get your festi-fix.

Joining the legendary pop powerhouse Lulu at our original gig at THE PIG in the New Forest will be the Strangler's punk rock vocalist and guitarist, Hugh Cornwell and R&B singer Geno Washington.

Over in Somerset at THE PIG-near Bath we are welcoming back the incredible sounds from disco legends Sister Sledge and English electronic band Dub Pistols, supporting boogie-woogie pianist Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.

Our third festival takes us back to the New Forest where we'll have alternative duo MF Robots and tropical rock singer Hollie Cooke warming us up for the sensational soul sounds of the Earth, Wind & Fire Experience featuring Al McKay at Lime Wood.

Last (but far from least) ska group The Selecter and Cardiff rock group Buzzard Buzzard Buzzard will be getting the crowd going for our final gig of the season with indie rock gods Supergrass at THE PIG-at Bridge Place.

Let’s not beat around the bush, we love food, it is what started this all in the first place, so once again we’re getting stuck into some serious flavour with our festival food stalls and Feasting Restaurants and Tents again for 2022!

Though it’s more traditional to stick a few tents in a muddy field, we are anything but conventional, so whether you are looking for laid-back summer vibes, a great get-a-away with friends or an unforgettable date for two, then sink your teeth into the Smoked & Uncut festivals; easy to get to but hard to leave!

Break out your summer, get your sunglasses and dancing shoes at the ready, and book ahead, leaving the rest to us.
