Headline addition – Undercover Festival – Bisley Pavilion nr Woking Surrey 18 / 19 / 20 Sept 2015

Punk stalwarts Peter and the Test Tube Babies have been brought in as the Friday night headliners to complete the bill at the third Undercover Festival at Bisley Pavilion in Woking, Surrey.

They sit at the top of the programme alongside The Damned, UK Subs, and Penetration.

The festival is one that pride itself on taking an independent and grassroots approach to things, and is always determined to be different from mainstream events.

As the name suggests, it’s an indoors event but with three days of alternative action from bands you’d be highly unlikely to see on many other festival line-ups.

Festival organiser, Mick Moriarty said: “We believe the usual run-of-the-mill festivals tend to book bands that in the main are broadly similar – and way too safe! We try for a line up and experience that is something different and appeals to a crowd not catered for elsewhere.

“Being a small independent grassroots festival is tough because media attention is always on the big boys. But we’ve got through to our third year and we’re going strong because what we have created really has struck a chord with people who like their music raw and full of the passion and energy that only acts like ours generate.”

Mick added “It’s been a bit of a trek getting the line up just right with a few obstacles thrown in our way but we feel this is the best line up so far at Undercover”

The festival grew out of a small tent tucked in the back corner of the sadly departed Guilfest and has now become a firm fixture in many people’s diaries, with dedicated fans coming back year on year.

In a financial climate where it always seems to be about the money, Undercover throws convention to the wind and just goes with what it believes in. There is a huge bill and day tickets can be bought from www.undercoverfest.com from just £25 or £75 for the weekend.
