In March 2020 the eighth and final Undercover Festival, a genuine, small independent alternative music festival, came back to its roots in Woking Surrey for an explosive finale of alternative music including punk, post punk, Ska and much more.
Yes small festivals are two a penny “BUT you won’t find anything like Undercover especially in the South East”
The next Undercover event will be The Fiery Bird Goes Undercover, on June 27th 2020.
Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions – we will be updating this on a regular basis so keep checking back. If your question is not answered here, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
When and Where Is It?
The Fiery Bird Goes Undercover is Saturday June 27th 2020
The Fiery Bird Music Venue
Church St East, Woking, Surrey, GU21 6HJ
The venue is a short walk from Woking Railway Station.
Is this an outdoor event?
NO – The Fiery Bird Goes Undercover does what it says on the tin – it’s an indoor event! So there’s no need to worry about rain (well not while you are in the venue).
What Bands are Playing and When?
Please see the Line-up section of this website.
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.
Can I Get A Refund?
Like any other festival or gig we cannot refund unwanted tickets, sorry.
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!
What are the Opening / Closing / Re-entry Times?
Doors open 7pm. Music ends midnight (DJ possibly until later).
You can leave and Re-enter The Festival up to 10pm each day.
Please note ticket exchange closes 10pm sharp.
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.
Please note that ticket exchange closes 10pm each day. We do this for every Undercover event this way it discourages pi**heads and all that entails.
Somewhere to stay during Undercover
There is parking opposite the venue.
The venue is two mins walk from Woking Station. Woking railway station is a major stop down the line from London Waterloo.
Regular trains to Alton, Guildford Winchester, Southampton, Bournemouth, Poole and Weymouth, the West of England Main Line to Andover, Salisbury and Exeter.
Woking is also well served by road and buses.
What About Children/Young People?
This is a 14+ event, anyone under 18 has to be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
Due to Local Authority Licensing requirements all Under 18s have to leave the venue by 11pm each night.
Unfortunately 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.
Will There Be Facilities For Disabled Persons?

Bars will be managed by the site owners; a range of hot and cold food is available near to the venue.

Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you require press accreditation or are unsure of our photography policy.
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.
However as always we need help spreading the word online and help flyer gigs see Street Teams link for more info.
