Camden Rocks 2017
The sixth Camden Rocks Festival is taking place this June and it has been announced that punk is officially coming home. The Damned, Orange Goblins and The Ruts DC are currently the first to be revealed for the main event.
The festival hosts over 250 bands across our most beloved venues in Camden each year. 2017 welcomes the addition of music venue monster KOKO.
Festival organiser Chris McCormack says, “We’re ecstatic to have such a legendary punk band like The Damned playing Camden Rocks Festival this year, they were one of the first bands I saw play live up in Newcastle, and a band I’ve seen more than any other – a huge inspiration.”
“As always, this year will be made up of all the best high-energy guitar bands we can get our hands on, along with all the best new bands we find through our Camden Rocks Presents shows we put on throughout the year in the lead up. Even I’d buy a ticket for this!”
The Damned’s Captain Sensible says, “Camden Market is partially responsible for the sartorial disaster that is Captain Sensible, as I’ve purchased more stage clobber there than anywhere else. And Camden was punk central in the 70s too so in some respects The Damned playing Camden Rocks is a return to the scene of the crime. We’ll probably time-warp the set list to reflect the 40th Anniversary of punk, so expect a lively one!”
