The following year saw huge demand for the event and crowds continued to grow, with the 2011 festival being attended by over 1500 people, enjoying some of the finest music Northern Ireland had to offer. For their efforts Pigstock earned a nomination for best festival at the Northern Irish Music Awards.
2012 will once again see Pigstock kick start the summer festival season with Northern Ireland's hottest bands sharing the bill with a strong contingent of southern Irish talent. This in line with Pigstock's new vision to showcase the best music be it from NI or further a field. There will be 32 bands playing across three stages over two days, a food village and the Pigstock bar. Local artist group firsty will be helping to make it visually the most colourful and interesting Pigstock to date!
