Details

As April approaches we can say goodbye to the snow and perpetual rain by looking forward to the start of the festival season next month with UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VI returning to the unique setting of Dreamland Margate in Kent an experience and venue that defies all other conventions and festival templates.

Not only do we have a cracking 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 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 the South has to offer in APRIL 2018.

The 2 day line-up includes some cracking local bands and so much more of all ages over two stages is shaping up to be an unmissable event.

Sham 69 back in Margate / Thanet for the very first time in 40 years (1978).

Sham 69: the Original Hersham Boys with Jimmy Pursey and the band headlining the Saturday at Undercover.

“I know it's taken a long walk to talk the talk in the garden, we have taken a long time to listen to Mick Moriarty asking us to come to Undercover Festival at Margate - Well alright see you there in April we are looking forward to it!” – Jimmy Pursey, Sham 69

The Blockheads: Ian Durys legendry outfit will headline on Friday 13th April on the main stage with a full set of at least 75 minutes and when we say at least as with this band you never know when they will stop once they have started.

A mouth-watering alternative line up of

Line up subject to change etc etc

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 most other festival line-ups.

“When we said it was the home we were looking for since we started as a festival in 2013, we meant it and I am pleased to be able to announce that we will be back at Dreamland Margate for 13th & 14th April 2018”

It looks as if the move to April is working and appealing to many, our advice is get in quick as it looks like this one will be selling out soon..

Plans are in place for an even better Undercover VI, the finishing touches are in place for this mouth-watering alternative music event.

I thought we could not beat the line-up we had for 2017, but I think we may have, our message to everyone is come along and see what all the fuss is about.

Said Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty.

Please note: For the avoidance of any doubt Undercover Festival is not an open air festival - the festival will be held in 2 rooms plus other areas at Dreamland Margate Kent - undercover by nature of the music policy of this festival and undercover - well because it is....

General admission tickets on sale online, by post or from several outlets.
