Since the opening of the Camden Theatre on December 26, 1900, Camden Town has been an integral part of London’s music scene. Throughout the years, numerous venues found within the town have hosted the likes of Led Zepplin, The Who, the Ramones, The Clash, Oasis, The Strokes and many more pivotal artists.
Now in its sixth year, the Camden Rocks Festival once again showcases the raw talent which fuels the industry, keeping the musical legacy of Camden Town alive. With artists such as Feeder, The Coral, Milburn, Royal Republic, Pulled Apart By Horses, Orange Goblin, Black Orchid Empire, Jasmine Rodgers and a slew of others, the 2017 event is poised to kick some major ass.
Among this year’s many highlights, punk rock legends The Damned–the first British band to release a punk single in 1976–will play an exclusive set list. Adding to the insanity, Camden Rocks 2017 will also host a special reformation from original Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook’s “The Professionals”.
Participating venues include, Koko, Electric Ballroom, Underworld, Dingwalls, Proud, Camden Assembly, Black Heart, Monarch, The Forge, The Crowndale, Dublin Castle, Dingwalls Canalside, Bloc Bar, Hawley Arms, Good Mixer, Brew-Dog, Be At One, Devonshire Arms, Belushis, Winnicott, The Fiddlers Elbow, The Lyttelton Arms, The Pack & Carriage, Camden Market Amphitheatre.
Following a sold-out event in 2016, this year will see Camden Rocks Festival up the stakes again, set to host a staggering 250 bands and artists across 25 of Camden Town’s venues on June 3rd 2017. Tickets are available here.
