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!
As he drew to a close and I wandered home from Camden tired but upbeat, it was easy to take a moment to reflect on what organiser Chris McCormack has achieved over the last 10 years.
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.
10 bands to check out on Day 2 of Camden Rocks 2019. A, Big Boy Bloater, Ferocious Dog, JoanovArc, Salvation Jayne, Indya, Towers of London, Ruts D.C. , Short Stories of London, Dragster.
JoanOvArc brought so much energy in fact, the sound man struggled to keep up with the vocal changes and for the first few songs there was so much vibration running through the stage the girls said it was vibrating like a sex toy!
If you hadn’t purchased the album after that evening you need your music radar checking for malfunctions.
As you head into the main Camden strip, like the LA strip but less sleazy, venues like The Underworld, The Electric Ballroom, Dingwalls, The Barfly, The Monarch and more play host to some 200 acts delivering what has to be one of the best value British music festivals available to the public.
Red Vixen Records may be label that currently only has a few acts but they are acts worth investigating further. Expect to hear much more from all three of these bands.
Zebrahead, Black Spiders, Yuck & more confirmed for Camden Rocks 2016, Escape The Fate & We Are The Ocean Cancelled
