Undercover Festival – Moved to London in April 2019

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 celebration of alternative music including Punk, Post Punk and so much more….

As April approaches we can say goodbye to the snow and perpetual rain by looking forward to the start of the festival season with UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL VII

We believe we have most bases covered; with the recent changes the line-up is now complete.

Sham 69: “There is only ONE Sham 69” the Original Hersham Boys with Jimmy Pursey and the band headlining the Saturday at Undercover.

Slaughter and the Dogs – The true legends of Manchester UK punk rock! flying over to the UK for their only London show of 2019

GBH – from the Birmingham; described as one of the forerunners of the UK82 sound and an influence on many a band.

Penetration – Special Guests – an original 1976 punk band. They are still playing today. Their first London show of 2019

Plus many other bands of ALL AGES to whet the appetite of any lover of alternative music.

Since it started in 2013 Undercover Festival has had a nomadic existence having occupied various locations including 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.

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.

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.

Plans are in place for an even better Undercover VII, we are putting the finishing touches to what we believe is a mouth-watering alternative music event with none of that X Factor schmaltz here. said Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
