One of the biggest alternative music festivals in the country is heading back to Kent.
Having been held earlier this year at Dreamland for the first time, the Undercover Festival will be back in Margate next spring.
The festival is a two-day celebration of alternative music including punk, new wave and ska. It is packed with big names as well as local bands performing over two stages.
Having previously been held in Brighton before relocating to Kent this year, the festival prides itself on taking an independent and grassroots approach.
Next year's line up will feature The Blockheads - Ian Dury's legendary backing band -headlining on the opening night. The following day, topping the bill are Sham 69. Featuring frontman Jimmy Pursey, the original Hersham Boys had a string of massive hits in the late 1970s including Hurry Up Harry and If The Kids Are United.
'I thought we could not beat the line-up we had for 2017, but I think we may have'
Also on the bill are Eddie and the Hot Rods, Sonic Boom Six, the Sex Pistols Experience, Chelsea, Kirk Brandon plus Peter and the Test Tube Babies
"I thought we could not beat the line-up we had for 2017, but I think we may have," said festival organiser Mick Moriarty.
"Our message to everyone is come along and see what all the fuss is about."
Festival-goers can also take advantage of retro rides and amusements at Dreamland plus, if it’s raining, have no fear – the Undercover Festival is, well, undercover, so no need to pack wellies.
The Undercover Festival is on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14 at Dreamland. A two-day advance ticket costs £75 or £85 on the door. Friday night tickets are £39 in advance, £49 on the door and Saturday £45 and £55.
