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.

“Dreamland in Margate is exactly what we have been looking for as a venue, quirky, retro and just right for our alternative music festival” said Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty.

Undercover Festival V boasts Acts such as Tom Robinson (with band), Angelic Upstarts, Ruts DC, Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band, Jilted John, Doctor& The Medics, Eddie and The Hot Rods, Subhumans, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Wonk Unit, Inner Terrestrials, Imperial Leisure, Chords UK, Radical Dance Faction along with a very strong supporting line up of established and up and coming bands, plus many Kent bands that to any lover of alternative music will find more than appealing.

“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”

“Undercover is an X Factor Free zone and there is no place for that schmaltzy pulp on our stages” added Mick

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.

With the recent announcement of the involvement of Scootering Magazine things are going from strength to strength for the festival.

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
