Undercover Promotions, the company running the Undercover Festival, has confirmed the next event will take place in April 2018 at Dreamland Margate in Kent.
The organiser moved the festival from Brighton to Kent for its fifth outing. This year Undercover Festival took place on 8-9 September. However, in 2018 the festival will take place five months earlier.
Mick Moriarty, festival organiser, explained: “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 13 and 14 April 2018.”
Commenting on the date change, Moriarty said: “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.”
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.
Undercover is unique in that it is an indoor music festival, but also because it offers two days of alternative action from bands festivalgoers would highly unlikely to see on most other festival line-ups.
“Not only do we have a cracking line-up but festivalgoers 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,” the organiser claimed.
Plans are in place for an even better Undercover VI, and Moriarty said the team is working on the finishing touches on what they believe is a mouth-watering alternative music event.
