An established INDOOR celebration of alternative music including Punk, Post Punk and so much more….
As April approaches we can say goodbye to the snow and perpetual rain by looking forward to the start of the festival season with UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VII
CHRIS PACKHAM added as a special guest (Sat) to the DJs playing the Vinyl Only After show party.
Other additions are Piranhas Four, Brain’s All Gone, Healthy Junkies and Crash Induction.
We believe we have most bases covered; with the recent changes the line-up is now complete.
Sham 69: “There is only ONE Sham 69” the Original Hersham Boys with Jimmy Pursey and the band headlining the Saturday at Undercover.
Slaughter and the Dogs – The true legends of Manchester UK punk rock! flying over to the UK for their only London show of 2019
GBH – from the Birmingham; described as one of the forerunners of the UK82 sound and an influence on many a band.
Penetration – Special Guests – an original 1976 punk band. They are still playing today. Their first London show of 2019
Plus many other bands of ALL AGES to whet the appetite of any lover of alternative music.
Since it started in 2013 Undercover Festival has had a nomadic existence having occupied various locations including the South Coast, 2019 will be no different, upping the ante by going back to three days and also moving to the big city, relocating to The Dome and accompanying Boston Music Room in North London’s Tufnell Park.
With a reputation for being one of the friendliest festivals out there that treats the audience and bands with a the respect they deserve the fast rising Undercover Festival has announced an April 2019 line up many would be hard pressed to match.
Undercover is an established small independent alternative festival that defies all other conventions and festival templates plus it is once again held undercover i.e. not outdoors so if it’s peeing down come April 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 London and the South East has to offer in APRIL 2018.
Plans are in place for an even better Undercover VII, we are putting the finishing touches to what we believe is a mouth-watering alternative music event with none of that X Factor schmaltz here. said Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty.
