Undercover moves to Margate

Undercover Festival will take place at Dreamland Margate, moving from its historical home of Brighton.

The September indoor festival, now in its fifth year, originated as a small tent at the since-dismantled GuilFest in Surrey. Organiser Mick Moriarty said Dreamland Margate will allow Undercover to offer not only music, but also retro rides and amusements for festivalgoers.

“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 passion and energy that only acts like ours generate,” Moriarty said.

“Undercover is an X Factor-free zone and there is no place for that schmaltzy pulp on our stages. We try for a line-up and experience that is something different and appeals to a crowd definitely not catered for elsewhere.”

Undercover Festival takes place 8-9 September 2017, with tickets on sale now at undercoverfest.com.
