The festival, at Dreamland in Margate takes place over two days in April

A two day festival boasting some major names in the punk and ska scenes has announced its full line-up.

Promising a unique setting, Dreamland Margate is hosting Undercover Festival, a two day festival in April set alongside retro rides and amusements.

Sham 69 and The Blockheads are already headlining the event, but dozens more bands will be playing the indoor festival, which also offers performances from alternative and acoustic musicians.

Roddy Radiation from The Specials will be performing with The Skabilly Rebels, while seven-piece ska-punk heavyweights King Punch will also be performing, after opening the Crazy Calamities at Boomtown Festival in August.

Undercover Festival organiser, Nick Moriarty said: ““When we said it was the home we were looking for since we started as a festival in 2013, we meant it and I am pleased to be able to announce that we will be back at Dreamland Margate for 13th & 14th April 2018.

“Plans are in place for an even better Undercover VI, we are putting the finishing touches to what we believe is a mouth-watering alternative music event.

“I thought we could not beat the line-up we had for 2017, but I think we may have, our message to everyone is come along and see what all the fuss is about.”
