Undercover Festival now in its FIFTH year are moving to the unique and quirky setting of Dreamland Margate in Kent.
Undercover a festival venue and experience that defies all other conventions and festival templates, not only do we have a cracking alternative line up but festival goers can experience many retro rides and amusements plus it is once again held undercover i.e. not outdoors so if it’s peeing down come September it’s not a problem and your beer won’t get diluted. Leave your wellies at home, and enjoy one of the best small alternative festivals the South has to offer this September.
“This year’s festival has a line-up that is packed with bands that should appeal to most that like their music alternative. Undercover is an X Factor Free zone and there is no place for that schmaltzy pulp on our stages” said Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty.
“We believe that the Undercover Festival V Line Up Is Stronger Than Ever Before” say festival organisers “especially as the legend that is Tom Robinson with band have announced that Undercover Festival is the only event they are playing across the South East as a full band for 2017 and we are so looking forward to welcoming Tom and band to Undercover”
The feedback we are getting is that people are up for this festival especially from Kent and we expect tickets to sell out so our advice to everyone is get in quick to avoid disappointment.
The festival is one that prides itself on taking an independent and grassroots approach to things, and is always determined to be different from mainstream events, with two days of alternative action from bands you’d be highly unlikely to see on many other festival line-ups.
“Being a small independent grassroots festival is tough because media attention is always on the big boys. But we’ve got through to our fifth year and we’re going strong because what we have created really has struck a chord with people who like their music raw and full of the passion and energy that only acts like ours generate.”
The festival now in its fifth year grew out of a small tent tucked in the back corner of the sadly departed GuilFest in Surrey and has now become a firm fixture in many people’s diaries, with dedicated fans coming back year on year.
In a financial climate where it always seems to be about the money, Undercover throws convention to the wind and just goes with what it believes in. There is a huge line up and tickets can be bought in advance online of from various locations details from www.undercoverfest.com
