SUPPORT UNDERCOVER

Small festivals are two a penny BUT you won’t find anything like Undercover especially in the South East (see below for a bit more about Undercover).

Since 2013 we believe that we have built one of the friendliest and best small alternative music events with the very best of punk, ska, post punk and so much more, but putting this on has been a labour of love but a very expensive experience for one particular person.

It is a well-known fact that despite how good an event it is Undercover does not make any money and that Mick who runs it soaks up the significant losses.  Mick can’t do that anymore and we are supporting him and the team by launching this campaign. Mick has supported us since 2013. It is now OUR time to support him!

Your support will keep the Undercover dream alive, but ONLY YOU can make it happen.  

If Undercover 9 goes ahead and all things being equal, the tickets charged on the day will work out more than those getting the two ticket reward package.

For more information please read the “A BIT MORE ABOUT UNDERCOVER” section below.

These are difficult times for us all please please stay safe and let’s party big time in 2021!

Thanks in advance!  Love and (virtual) hugs from the Undercover Crowd Funder Campaign Team xxx

Where: Suburbstheholroyd, 

The Holroyd Arms, Aldershot Road, Guildford, Surrey, GU2 8AF

Those that have been at the venue before won't recognise the place, as its been redeveloped to be a 400+ capacity venue, and its looking very very impressive.

The (improved and larger) main stage will have live music up to midnight Fri & Sat and 10pm on the Sunday.

And there will be an acoustic stage outside "The Not So Undercover Acoustic Corner"with some real treats being planned and maybe the return of "the Buskers Corner".

With loads of hotels relatively close by for details see the updates section for a full announcement of the New Venue.

When: 9th, 10th and 11th April 2021. (weekend after Easter).


This is the date we are aiming for; if the crisis is still on or for practical reasons prohibits this date then we will look to move it to a later date hopefully around Sept or October or even November if we have to, it is just difficult to nail down the date due to the crisis. We have to date held 9 Undercover Festival events (inc Undercover 7.5) and other gigs, even if it means we lose money we have honoured our promise to make each and every event happen, and we will stake our hard earned reputation to assure you if the funding is secured Undercover9 WILL happen.

How big an Undercover?  

The Undercover team will make Undercover 9 happen what shape it takes will depend on the funding reached as we aim to keep within a budget set by the money raised in this project, so it is down to you really.

A BIT MORE ABOUT UNDERCOVER

Undercover Festival, a genuine, small proudly independent musical celebration of alternative music including punk, post punk, Ska and much more. Yes small festivals are two a penny “BUT you won’t find anything like Undercover especially in the South East”

Since we started loads of others have cropped up but we believe no one can match the family friendly and independent feel we have at Undercover.

Even since 2013 we have kept a proud and independent identity bereft of corporate sponsorship.

Because we are always Undercover the bar takings are never ours so Undercover survives or we aim to predominantly on ticket sales.

Undercover Festival has had a nomadic existence since we first started in Bisley Surrey in 2013 for 3 years, then via Brighton for a year, Margate was for a couple of years, then 2019 we upped sticks to Tufnell Park London and for September 2019 we moved to The Fiery Bird Venue Woking the general area we started in, and March 2020 we moved back to Woking, but as the venue is closing we are looking for another new venue.

Undercover a small alternative festival defies all other conventions and festival templates by always being 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.

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, with 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 definitely not catered for elsewhere.

“Being a small independent grassroots festival is tough because media attention is always on the big boys, but we believe we have struck a chord with people who like their music raw and full of the passion and energy that only acts like ours generate.”

The festival grew out of a small tent tucked in the back corner of the sadly departed GuilFest in Surrey and has 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.

UNDERCOVER FESTIVAL 9 – YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN!
If sufficient funds are raised Undercover 9 will happen, if not then it will not be possible to go ahead and all pledges will be refunded.

If Undercover 9 goes ahead and all things being equal, the tickets charged on the day will work out more than those getting the two ticket reward package.
