At this festival we are providing 40 plus top acts / cracking DJs etc BUT we will also be urging support for 3 worthy causes; 2 that are local to Woking and one that is a national campaign, there will be a stall at the festival and a bucket collection.
THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION
On the 24th August 2007 Sophie Lancaster was murdered alongside her boyfriend who was attacked because the offenders took issue with their appearance.
Since Sophie’s death the charity known as The Sophie Lancaster Foundation was set up in Sophie’s name; will focus on creating respect for and understanding of subcultures in our communities.
It will also work in conjunction with politicians and police forces to ensure individuals who are part of subcultures are protected by the law.
THE PHOENIX CULTURAL CENTRE
The Phoenix Cultural Centre is a place that aims to provide a centre for Woking which stages live music and arts events and has space for Community groups to use.
WOKING & SAM BEARE HOSPICES
Woking & Sam Beare Hospices are a worthy cause in our book that serves the community well
“Unfortunately GuilFest is no longer with us and we thought it would be a shame to let the unique atmosphere / buzz that was created in the Vive Le Rock Stage @ Guilfest in 2011 & 2012 go to waste”.
Mick Mc Donagh from the festival team said “ When we set this festival up we looked at what was special about the VLR stage and we think we have recreated and built on that multi genre buzz that was the VLR stage at GuilFest”.
He added “At this festival we have acts that are internationally and nationally renowned but what will also be special about this festival is the amount of acts we have booked with local links”.
Woking, Surrey and the South East have a rich musical heritage (The Jam, The Stranglers, Sham 69 etc), however contemporary music across Surrey and the South East to many is not as ground breaking and vibrant as those days, we believe that musical talent covering many genres and ages is still vibrant today but mostly undiscovered by the wider local community – our message to the community is come on down to the festival and see this rich line up of talent from Woking / Surrey / The South East / South Coast and beyond for yourselves”.
Please note: For the avoidance of any doubt The Undercover Festival is not an open air festival – the festival will be held in 2 rooms and a marquee at the Bisley Pavilion – undercover by nature of the music policy of this festival and undercover – well because it is…
Tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis – £45 for both days
