Pig Ignerents to play at Kendal Calling

The Pig Ignerents have been booked to play at the marvellous and lovely Kendal Calling Festival in Cumbria on August 2nd - playing on the Woodland Stage on what is hopefully a lovely late Saturday summers afternoon.  The Pigs will hopefully be rested after their European adventure and it's going to be a blast! And we are on just after Colt 45 - a great Cumbrian band - right before Red Corner - another punk rock band - and Evil Blizzard (think 'Hawkwind on ketamine' - expect an explosive couple of hours!

Headliners in 2014 include Suede, Miles Kane, Example, Frank Turner, Newton Faulkner, Tom Odell, 2ManyDJs, BIRD and Happy Mondays. Kendal won the Best Small Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards in 2010 and 2011 and Best Medium Festival for last year's amazing event. August 1st - 3rd, Lowther Deer Park, Penrith, Cumbria

The Pig Ignerents - now Ben, Jonah, Jord and new drummer James - are off to two amazing festivals this summer - POHODA in Slovakia, and the EXIT FESTIVAL in Serbia. Watch these pages for more details.

At Pohoda bands include Disclosure, Suede, Kraftwerk, Tricky, Tame Impala, Mogwai, Bachtale Apsa, Moderat, Azealia Banks, Autumnist and Goldfrapp - and we are honoured to be performing. Its a brilliant festival much admired across Europe. We are hoping organiser Michal might just come and join us on stage for a punk blast. Watch out for a free download for Pohoda fans of a new live recording of Black Dr Martens - coming soon!  We will be there FRIDAY 11TH JULY.

The Exit Festival is the award winning summer music festival which is held at the Petrovaradin Fortress in the city of Novi Sad, Vojvodina, Serbia. It was officially proclaimed as the 'Best Major European festival' at the EU Festival Awards which were held in Groningen in January 2014 - and Ben was the host of that! The EU Festival Award is considered one of the most prestigious festival awards in the world. This year performers include Damon Albarn, Skrillex, Rudimental, Disclosure, Carl Craig vs Green Velvet, Dusky vs Paul Woolford, Jackmaster, Oneman, Koven and Dub FX  - many many more to be announced. And the Pig Ignerents will be there - SATURDAY 12TH JULY - and Exit fans get a free download too - a brand new recording of 'Radio Interference' recorded live in Manchester on March 29th 2014.

Jord, Jonah, James and Ben
