Camden Rocks Festival 2016: The Cribs, Carl Barat, Young Guns, Zebrahead, Yuck
Returning for its fifth year on Saturday 4th June, Camden Rocks is the very first happening of the festivals season. The line-up features some huge names in indie, punk, rock and metal, including The Cribs, Carl Barat & The Jackals, Zebrahead, Young Guns, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Ginger Wildheart, Billy Bragg, Johnny Foreigner, Creeper, Sonic Boom Six, Yuck and more.
Camden Town has long been the hub of the UK’s rock ‘n’ roll scene. The British music business might largely be run out of plush West London offices, but it’s in the bars and clubs of Camden where the raw talent which fuels the industry is incubated and developed, where the buzz on the world’s hottest new bands is amplified from a whisper to a scream.
Packing in over two-hundred bands across 20 of Camden Town’s prestigious music venues, Camden Rocks tickets are on sale for just £35 plus booking fees and are available here.
During the past editions the festival saw surprise shows from further high-profile bands so keep your eyes open. In 2009 The Libertines Pete Doherty and Carl Barat headline, alongside then up and coming talents Nine Black Alps, Young Guns, The Paddingtons, Black Spiders and Sonic Boom Six.
