From the chaos and ashes of the Covid pandemic step forward Undercover Festival and Events.
Undercover Festival is back for its 9th outing 15 /16 / 17 October 2021. (and Undercover TEN being lined up six months later).
Now based in Guildford, Surrey hosting a smorgasbord of alternative music events before and after the festivals!
Back from calling it a day in March 2020 via a lot of nagging from regulars plus a crowd funding campaign along with a venue that made us an offer we could not refuse.
Downsized but fitter with two festivals coming up and a shed load of gigs either side and in between.
Undercover Festival is a small, proudly independent musical celebration of alternative music including punk, post punk, ska, acoustic and much more, small festivals maybe two a penny but you won’t find anything else quite like an Undercover Festival or event.
“At Undercover you won’t find any of that X Factor schmaltz so my message is come along and find out what the fuss is about and if you like your music alternative you will love what we have to offer at Undercover… as we say at Undercover See Ya Down The Front”. – Mick, Undercover Festival
March 2020 was going to be the eighth and final outing for Undercover Festival, however, pressure from the Undercover family led to a successful crowdfunding campaign and the nomadic festival is now set to return on the weekend of 15th to 17th October 2021 for it’s ninth outing at another new venue, the newly refurbished Suburbs at The Holroyd in Guildford, UK.
Plans are in place in 2022 for our Tenth ever festival 1st, 2nd and 3rd April 2022 with a top quality alternative line up.
