Undercover Festival now in its fifth year are moving to the unique and quirky setting of Dreamland Margate in Kent. Undercover is a festival venue and experience that defies all other conventions and festival templates, not only do they 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.
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.
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.
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.
