Midnight Mango presents The Undercover Hippy

Please note this is an 18+ event

Drum & Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, appears to be 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 a fast paced lyrical delivery. Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, Billy and his band never fail to leave the crowd feeling inspired and energised, playing tours and festivals across the UK and Europe. 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.

“Beautifully produced agitprop reggae flavoured rap”
