Dodgy, 3 Daft Monkeys and Hedluv + Passman are the stellar names announced for the seventh annual World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project on Saturday March 3, 2017.

Britpop legends Dodgy were a big hit at Eden last June when they were special guests at the epic Blondie Eden Session.

Formed in 1990, Dodgy have released three albums and enjoyed 12 Top 40 singles, including Staying Out For The Summer and their massive signature hit Good Enough - one of the most played tracks on British radio in the last 20 years.

What Are We Fighting For, the critically-acclaimed fifth album from the original Dodgy line-up, was released in September 2016.

Marion Harrison, Eden Live Project Lead, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Dodgy back to Eden for our World Pasty Championships.

“They gave a mind-blowing performance for us last summer and we’re sure they are going to add something really special to this year’s pasty celebrations.”

Joining Dodgy on the big day is Cornwall-based band 3 Daft Monkeys. The band were dubbed the highlight of Glastonbury Festival by broadcaster Mark Radcliffe and invited onto his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show.

Following a crowdfunding campaign last year, they released a brand new album, earning five-star reviews along the way.

Cornish rap duo Hedluv + Passman return to the World Pasty Championships with some brand new material after spending 20 years delighting audiences with their Cornish folk rap bangers including The Pasty Song, Dreckly and M.I.C (Made in Cornwall).

Entries are open for the seventh annual World Pasty Championships, now firmly established as one of the greatest celebrations of Cornwall’s culinary gift to the world. 

In a first for next year, the championships will be the climax of the inaugural Cornish Pasty Week (February 25 to March 3 2018) inspired by the Eden event and delivered by industry membership body the Cornish Pasty Association.
