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.
Since it started in 2013 Undercover Festival has had a nomadic existence having occupied various locations on 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.
Undercover Festival boasts main acts such as Sham 69 (Pursey, Parsons, Treganna, Guy) / Slaughter and the Dogs / Penetration / GBH plus a very strong supporting line up of bands that to any lover of alternative music will find more than appealing.
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.
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 three days of alternative action from bands you’d be highly unlikely to see on most other festival line-ups.
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.
