With four month's to go until Camden Town is overrun once more, the first wave of acts for this year’s Camden Rocks festival have been announced.
Taking over various venues in Camden Town on Saturday May 30, Camden Rocks welcomes Welsh post-hardcore legends Funeral For A Friend, Austin alt. rockers ... And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead and Heavens Basement as three massive names for this year's event.
As a festival exclusive, Funeral For A Friend are planning something very special for fans. Frontman Matthew Davies says: “We’re thrilled to have been invited to play Camden Rocks. We’re looking forward to banging out three in your face sets across Camden during the day so make sure you’re in attendance as we’ll probably be mixing it up a fair bit!”
Renowned New York proto-punks The Dictators are joining the line-up alongside some of Britain's finest acts from the current crop of stellar rock, punk and metal acts, including Black Spiders, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Turbowolf, Feed The Rhino and God Damn.
Only 40 incredible acts have been announced and Camden Rocks still have over 200 more on the line-up for this year’s festivities. Now in its fourth year, Camden Rocks takes over the legendary venues, pubs and bars (Electric Ballroom, Underworld, Proud Camden, Barfly, Jazz Cafe, Dingwalls and more) in Camden Town and this year is set to be the biggest festival yet.
Tickets are priced at £30 (plus booking fee) and are available now from the festival website.
