Smoked & Uncut Music Festivals are back with a bang for 2017 with eleven dates across the summer to sink your teeth into. Literally. With festival foodie fare from Angela Hartnett and Mark Hix there will be an abundance of decent grub on offer. From folk to funk and rock to reggae - artists include The Noisettes, The Blockheads, Ward Thomas, Rationale, Dr Feelgood, Flyte, Toploader and a very special secret headliner yet to be announced guaranteeing there will be something for everyone. Lime Wood and THE PIG hotels play host to these boutique festivals with more than a nod to British booze with drinks including local ales from regional breweries, cocktails from Chase Distillery and English sparkling wine from Hambledon.
For those keen to luxe-out under canvas, book one of The Pop-Up Hotel’s bell tents at THE PIG-near Bath or Lime Wood. This is the only way to camp – think squishy mattresses, fluffy towels, duvets and pillows with cotton bed linen, bedside tables with lanterns and, critically, a top tier loo / shower block. The Glamping Village is open all weekend and kicks off on Friday afternoon with Chef Angela Hartnett serving up her signature festival feast - sundowners will be served around the campfire followed by 4 courses of Italian sharing classics (with wine on tap), acoustic chill out tunes and laid back beats sure to see you into the early hours. If you miss out on Angela’s feast or are just hungry for more, Chef Mark Hix and some of his friends, will be getting all fired up with the ‘Heavy Metal Meat Feasts’! Get stuck into some serious flavour with a beer in one hand and a burger in the other and enjoy three courses of BBQ cult classics served with a side of rock and roll!
Multiple stages adorn this year’s festivals with the main stage offering a whole heap of talent from local musicians - up and coming artists include Will Joseph Cook and Toothless and accomplished stars such as The Noisettes and Ward Thomas. The second stage is home to more dulcet tones for those looking to sit back and relax with a dreamy soundtrack. Vintage stores, vinyl shops, arts and crafts and tug-o-war for the children make these days completely unmissable. These quintessentially British small music festivals have a limited ticket run so be sure to buy one now before it’s too late.
