The Undercover Hippy / MK11 Milton Keynes / 28.10.22 on Friday 28th October 2022
Drum & Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is on a mission to make people think, laugh, and dance simultaneously. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being “like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods”, his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and masterful lyrical dexterity. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking person to shake their arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem...on a protest march...at the Edinburgh Fringe. Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, Billy and his band have performed at some of the UK’s best festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Green Man and The Secret Garden Party, as well as many European festivals. As the music clocks up over 11 million streams on Spotify, the band have been clocking up motorway miles, touring relentlessly with over 80 shows and festival appearances across the UK and Europe each year. Of course covid has been tough for the band, with their spring 2020 “Fool Britannia” single release tour being rescheduled 3 times before finally going ahead in October 2021. But the comeback was worth the wait, with sold out shows across the country.
