Emergency warming for Undercover Festival…

PUNK legends 999 have been lined up to headline a one-day event near Woking on Saturday, November 21.

The band, who formed in 1976, released a string of cult singles like I’m Alive, Nasty Nasty and Emergency and played alongside the likes of the Buzzcocks, The Jam and The Stranglers.

Still fronted by Nick Cash, they will play at the Winter Warmer event, hosted at Bisley Pavilion by the organisers of the Undercover Festival.

The line-up also includes a host of other bands who have played Undercover over the past three years, including The Witchdoktors, Church of Eon (including Chelsea members), Charred Hearts, Healthy Junkies, Xtraverts and Stone Heroes.

Undercover promotor Mick Moriarty has confirmed that the Winter Warmer will be the last event at the Bisley
site as ‘they are moving to another venue in 2016’.

Undercover prides itself on taking an independent and grassroots approach to things, and Mick adds: “We try for  and appeal to a crowd not catered for elsewhere.

“Being small, independent and grassroots-focussed is tough because media attention is always on the big boys. But we’ve got through to our third year and 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.”

Undercover grew out of a small tent tucked in the back corner of the sadly departed GuilFest and has now become
a firm fixture in many people’s diaries, with dedicated fans coming back year on year.

As the name suggests, the Winter warmer is an indoor event – full details are online at undercoverfest.com.
