Undercover Festival V set to move from Brighton to Dreamland, Margate in 2017

By Angela Cole

A ska and punk festival which has been running for five years in Brighton is set to move to Dreamland.

The two-day Undercover Festival V, which was headlined by The Selecter and Dreadzone last year, still has much of its line-up to announce for this year. 

It will be staged at Dreamland in Margate on Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9. 

The Selecter had their first hit back in 1979

Held undercover, organisers stress that festivalgoers can leave their wellies at home and will also be able to experience retro rides and amusements at the site in Margate.

"This year’s festival has a line-up that is packed with bands that should appeal to most that like their music alternative. Undercover is an X Factor free zone," said organiser Mick Moriarty.

Local bands will play alongside bigger names over two stages.

Mick added: “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.”

The festival grew out of a small tent tucked at the back of GuilFest in Surrey. 

Dreamland hosted the music festival By the Sea for the second year in September.
