Words and Pictures: Adrian Hextall / MindHex Media Following on from Part I – our review can be found here: Rockin’ The Bowl – Don Valley Bowl, Sheffield – Review Pt 1 , Saturday September 11 2021 And so to Sunday, where The Dukes of Bordello got the day off to a moonshine fuelled start. […]
Initially we were a one day festival and the three day format was as a response to our 2020 postponement due to the pandemic in order to give our fans something extra for their incredible loyalty. However, we have decided to continue as a three day festival!
This is a mere taster only of what these bands have to offer and I would implore listeners to check out the albums in their entirety, some have several releases already under their belts, all fantastic and absolutely deserving of a place in any decent record collection.

The hardest part at the moment, it’s all about getting over insecurities that you might have about your own voice. I can say, it’s just a matter of continuous training at the moment anything that is needed that will just help me get through especially when we are playing 12 nights back to back.

Running up and down the strip really does deliver a buzz and whilst a lot of people may pick a venue and stick there, trawling through the bands in advance of the festival, finding some undiscovered wonder and tracking them down on the day to witness a memorable performance is what the festival is really about.
Camden Rocks 2019 was another massive success and I cannot wait until next year. With something for everyone on offer, you never leave feeling disappointed, and always wanting for more.
