Today we announce Brighton indie rockers British Sea Power and cult, progressive metal band SikTh, whose festival appearance is their only London show this year!!“The last show we played with SikTh at Camden Rocks was an incredibly intense and intimate show. Hope we can bring that energy to this one. We didn’t want to play London for a while but this offer came in and we couldn’t refuse. Really excited.“
These new additions are joined by Camden favourites Echobelly and Danny Goffey (Supergrass) whose Britpop credentials were spawned on the streets of Camden’s most famed venues. Together with an unplugged acoustic set from The Rifles, five piece indie band Eliza and the Bear, British Rockers RavenEye and a further 35+ hand selected acts. Expect a raucous day of musical madness covering every style across the many indie, rock, metal and punk genres from buzzing new bands to established rock giants.
