The 5th edition of Undercover Festival, the festival of punk, ska, indie, alternative, and acoustic acts, moves out of Brighton to a new home Margate's Dreamland amusement park over two days on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th September 2017.

The nature of the venue ensures that everything is nearby; no long walks between stages, and parking is very close to the venue. Dreamland in Margate has a huge punk / alternative music legacy as most of the bands in the 70s played there.No acts are announced yet. Expect 2 stages plus a buskers corner, and a later 2am finish.

Organisers said, "Unfortunately we will not be going back to Brighton Racecourse as this is no longer a viable option, which is a shame but these things happen but we are pretty chuffed with the new venue as the place is stuffed with history and character plus it fits into the “quirky and unusual” nature of what is generally expected of an Undercover Festival Venue."

Details of where you can pick up paper tickets (remember them) in person and by post will be announced soon.

There will be no camping this time but there are a great deal of accommodation options on offer in Margate.
