MAID of ACE
The four sisters who deliver adrenaline fueled Punk-rock, Maid Of Ace have come along way in recent years. Their 2014 Youtube hit ‘Bone Deth’ topping 500K, Playing Glastonbury festival 2015 and their latest record ‘Maid In England’ earning its place at No 9 in ‘Vive Le Rock’ Magazines ‘Top 50 Albums of 2016′ are milestones to say the least. It’s easy to forget the hard-hitting siblings have been bashing out their brand of boisterous noise since the school summer of 2005. Born in Hastings, South-coast England; Alison, Anna, Abby and Amy who all share the same initials ‘ACE’ and with four Ace’s in a pack the band almost seemed destined. Accelerating though years of beers, bruises and ear battery, ‘Maid of Ace’ Released their self- titled debut album in 2014 and have since become an indestructible unit and force to be reckoned with. Known best for their on-stage energy and raw rage, They continue to make a name for themselves across the globe and are showing no signs of slowing down… Look out world! http://www.maid-of-ace.com/

April 6, 2018 – April 7, 2018
The Fighting Cocks finally presents unto you an evening of duos, couples and twosomes, if you will.
It seems less is more these days and we’re going to let these three bands prove it.
We excitedly welcome back SKiNNY MiLK from Brighton. These two fuzzy psychonauts have played for us on various occasions including last years NYE party. Since then they have played and blasted every watering hole and venue in the UK, including being the backing band for Castle Face Records’ Male Gaze on their UK and Euro tour last month. Be sure to have your ear plugs in deep and your mouth guards in. You’ve been warned.
Support comes from Kingstons finest, Model Citizens. Beating you down with desert rock vibes, uncompromising charm and good looks.
And doubly excited to introduce Southends partners in crime, Suspects. We don’t know how these two have managed to stay under the radar for so long… But we’re glad they finally surfaced. Get down early to witness their shear power of punk and grunge rock.

Undercover Festival back at Margate for 2018
“See You Down The (Sea) Front”
Undercover Festival VI @ Dreamland Margate
13 & 14 April 2018
UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VI a 2 day celebration of alternative music including Punk / Ska / Alt / Acoustic + so much more.
Undercover Festival is returning in 2018 to the unique setting of Dreamland Margate in Kent a venue and experience 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 over two stages is shaping up to be an unmissable event. We believe we have most bases covered.
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 many other festival line-ups.
