Get ready Camden Town – the first forty acts for this year’s Camden Rocks Festival 2015 have been announced!
Taking over twenty venues in Camden Town on Saturday 30th May, Camden Rocks welcomes Welsh post-hardcore legends Funeral For A Friend and Austin alt rock stalwarts …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead as two massive names for this years festival. Renowned New York proto-punks The Dictators NYC also join the bill alongside some of the finest acts from Britain’s current crop of stellar rock, punk and metal acts, including Black Spiders, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Turbowolf, Feed The Rhino and God Damn.
As a Camden Rocks exclusive, Funeral For A Friend are planning something very special for fans and are playing three different shows during the day in three different venues. Frontman Matthew Davies says: “We’re thrilled to have been invited to play Camden Rocks. We’re looking forward to banging out three in your face sets across Camden during the day so make sure you’re in attendance as we’ll probably be mixing it up a fair bit!”.
In the words of …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s Jason Reece: “We are truly excited to be a part of Camden Rocks. It will be a hoot and a hollar. Good times, great oldies. Mosh-tastic and slam-a-riffical! Bring your Sunday best and your Friday worst. We want to rock wit U. Hail Satan!”
