How Do I Get Tickets?

Please see the Tickets section of this website where you can buy tickets from us online, by post or in person from selected shops.

If there are any tickets available on the door these will be a lot more expensive than on the door; that is if any are left as we anticipate selling out very quickly.

I Have Lost My Ticket, Can I Get A Replacement?

Like any other event, ticket agency or box office, we cannot replace lost tickets so make sure you keep them safe!

You can leave and Re-enter The Festival up to 8pm each day.

Getting Wristbands on the day

On arrival you will be directed to Wristband Exchange. If you have ordered an e-ticket you will need ID and either a mobile version or a print out of the ticket.

We do this for every Undercover event this way it discourages pi**heads and all that entails.

Unfortunately for 2019 we are not able to do family tickets, this is as the venue is smaller than previous events and we will not have the space for such a scheme.

Street Teams / Can I Help? / Flyers and Social Media

Without you Undercover Festival will simply not happen and with your help we can make this year’s festival a great success.
Any help you can give to get to word out is appreciated as it all helps make Undercover that extra bit special.

Please contact us at undercoverfest@btinternet.com if you can help flyer gigs in your area. Plus if you know of any shops, records, clothes, vintage etc that can put up a poster or stick flyers on their counter, please let us know.

Who we can reach on social media is limited unless we spend bundles on advertising which means we would not have much left for bands etc, so your help by inviting people to the event page and sharing banners when they are up will be greatly appreciated.

Can I have a job?

As an indoor festival we do not have that many jobs going and most of the help we get is with our band of volunteers without which the festival would not take place.  These roles are pretty much full.
