With days to go everything is ready for “the best Undercover Festival so far” says Festival Organiser Mick Moriarty “our quality headliners backed up by a very strong line up including many local bands is one that we feel is QUITE POSSIBLY OUR BEST LINE UP SO FAR” Mick added “Our message to everyone is come along to Undercover and see what the fuss is all about”

The festival is one that prides itself on taking an independent and grass-roots approach to things, and is always determined to be different from mainstream events.

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

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.

UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL set in and around the unique setting of Bisley Pavilion, Bisley Camp nr Woking Surrey, a festival venue and experience that defies all other conventions and festival templates.

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 line up and day tickets can be bought in advance from www.undercoverfest.com from just £25 or £75 for the weekend.

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!
