Hailing from Pontypridd, Wales we’re rather pleased to drag Trackstar/Pornstar down from the valleys for this knees up. Formed of members of 100000 Bodybags and Dead Radio. Punk to the core!
In what is quite possibly their debut gig, we’re well excited to introduce WHITE BASTARD who promise to dislodge the wax from the depths of your ear canals.
Check em out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ln8x2JWJd5E

Big Enough To Matter Small Enough To care!
Undercover Festival VII back for 26, 27 & 28 April 2019 for a SEVENTH consecutive year
Moving to Boston Music Room and The Dome Tufnell Park London. . .!!
An established INDOOR 3 Day celebration of alternative music including Punk, Post Punk and so much more….
As the Winter months draw to a close we can say goodbye to the snow and perpetual rain by looking forward to the start of the festival season in April 2019 with UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VII back for our SEVENTH YEAR.
With not long to go “everything is in place to make this the best Undercover Festival yet, a cracking venue and a packed alternative line up you won’t find anywhere else this time of year especially in London. We believe this year’s line-up is one that will appeal to any lover of alternative music and you will have none of that X Factor shite / schmaltz here.
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.
General admission tickets on sale now tickets are available by post / online or (paper tickets) from All Ages Records in Camden, Banquet Records in Kingston Surrey, Sounds of the Suburbs Records Ruislip or go online to www.undercoverfest.com for more details on the line up, tickets and everything else Undercover Festival related.
As we say at Undercover “See Ya Down The Front”
