A first list of acts has been announced for this year's CAMDEN ROCKS, once again proudly sponsored by Vive Le Rock!
Now in its seventh year, the one day festival will take over the North London rock'n'roll enclave on Saturday 2 June with the likes of MAXIMO PARK, PiL, THE PROFESSIONALS, POP WILL EAT ITSELF, RAGING SPEEDHORN, URBAN VOODOO MACHINE, SONIC BOOM SIX and German legends BEATSTEAKS.
“I’ve been trying to book Public Image Limited for years so it’s great to finally have them playing Camden Rocks this year,” enthuses event organiser Chris McCormack. “John Lydon and the Sex Pistols are the reason I got into music, easily the biggest influence personally and I’m sure for a lot of bands playing the festival. PiL at the Electric Ballroom on their 40th anniversary is going to be incredible.”
“As always, the festival is as much about the emerging talent out there as it is the more established bands so get down early to catch some of these great new artists before they go supernova.”
“I’m also super excited about having Beatsteaks over from Germany,” continues McCormack. “They’re a fantastic live band. Not many people know them in the UK which is crazy but hopefully we can help change that.”
Also confirmed are TWIN ATLANTIC, TOWERS OF LONDON, THE MAIN GRAINS, MASSIVE WAGONS, FREEZE THE ATLANTIC, DUCKING PUNCHES, ASYLUMS, HANDS OFF GRETEL, DUKE OF WOLVES, MOSES, PRESS TO MECO, CHILDCARE, JB CONSPIRACY, GOLD KEY, CANVAS, SCREECH BATS, NIGHTLORD, BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE and many more....
