Camden. It’s arguably the home of British Rock Music, and the undisputed scene for Live Music in the Nation’s Capital.
And as the start of the festival season draws near, Saturday 30th May will see over 200 bands, across 20 venues, tear that small part of North London in two, as part of the Camden Rocks Festival.
As one of the newest, and one of the best one-day festivals around, and having artists such as Pete Doherty of The Libertines, Therapy?, and The Subways headline in previous years, Camden Rocks 2015 promises to be the best yet. With new acts such as Austin Dickinson’s (son of Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson) As Lions, Hawk Eyes, Fearless Vampire Killers and numerous others, playing alongside the experienced post-hardcore stylings of Funeral For A Friend, and the established reggae influenced nu-metal sounds of Skindred, it’s hard to find a reason not to head to Camden Town on the 30th of May. However, if you’re still undecided, after months of keeping it secret, festival organisers have now announced what was this year’s secret headliner. 2015 will see Welsh metal riff masters Bullet For My Valentine, close the festival. With a new member, new album, and a new tour on the way, this will be the band’s only London show in the U.K this year, and it promises to be a big one.
Spread across the beating musical heart of London, bands will play their sets in some of the most iconic and well-known venues. From the intimate surroundings of the Barfly, to the grand presence of the KoKo, and other venues including the Black Heart, Electric Ballroom, and the Roundhouse, Camden Rocks is the only chance to see these bands in such legendary surroundings. Not only that, but many bands will also be playing more than one set during the course of the day. That means that you can either see one of your favourites twice, or simply avoid a clash of stage times between two bands you want to see.
With 2015’s line-up being the biggest and best in Camden Rocks’ history, there is no reason not to grab a ticket to this mammoth of a festival.
