The Undercover Hippy

The Undercover Hippy

Billy Salisbury aka ​The Undercover Hippy ​has been performing at festivals since 2008, working his way up from ​ ​being a solo singer-songwriter playing in small marquee stages, to now having a full band of incredible musicians ​ ​and playing main-stages at some of the UK’s best independent festivals. The band have been regulars at ​ ​Glastonbury, Boomtown, Electric Picnic​, ​Eden Festival ​in Scotland and ​Beautiful Days​, plus many more around the UK and Europe.

The music is best described as politically driven acoustic roots reggae folk-hop, with feel good vibes and a sly sense of humour. The live show is high energy, interactive, and always leaves the crowd begging for more. Devoted fans travel the length of the UK for shows, audibly singing along with every chorus.

In 2021 the band will release new singles, followed by their fourth album, a comprehensive UK tour and more lined up for 2022.

“Like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest, and The Sleaford Mods” Tom Robinson, BBC6Music

“A solemn reminder that even the most powerful are fallible” Record of The Week – Camden New Journal

“The band lit up the venue with their tongue-in-cheek yet poignant music” ClunkMag Review
