Favorite ThisBig Pig Upriver Festival Announces Initial Lineup

Published: June 8, 2011

Big PigThe Big Pig Music & Arts Festival has arrived! Skeetones, Perfect Norm, and Rock Live Productions have joined forces to bring Break Science, Freekbot (Freekbass and Tobotius), Soulive, Lettuce, the Macpodz, and more to southern Ohio, for the curly tail end of summer. The festival will be taking place September 30-October 2 at beautiful Pisgah Hill Farms in Ripley, OH, just an hour east of Cincy on the Ohio River. As expected, there will be food vending, camping, and other such standard festival amenities--only you don't have to pay through your nose for booze, it's BYOB. On top of that, the big pig namesake will be fired up for some good ol' fashioned barbecue. Music, beer, and pig meat. That's what life is all about, right? Pre-sale tickets are just $30, and go on sale June 15th. The price will rise slightly to $40 at the gate, but that ain't nothing compared to the value. Stay tuned for more artists being added to the bill, especially on the electronic side of things. More information at
