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.
