Absolute gems to catch at Camden Rocks festival – Part 1

With Camden Rocks only being a few sleep away we wanted to put together a list of absolute cracking bands that will be taking to one of the many stages in Camden Town. Use this as a guide to either help you decide what bands to go see, or make it even more difficult to decide who to catch.


Where are they performing? The Camden Assembly

What time? 12pm

Drones will definitely be one of the early ones in the day to catch, but it will be so worth it! With their second album ‘Exiled’ released earlier this year, they are really starting to become one of the more exciting bands to be breaking out into the scene, I fully expect this will be a name that you will be hearing a lot more from in the years to come.

Dame Jean

Where are they performing? Dingwalls Canalside

What time? 3:30pm

Although still rather fresh with only two singles out to date, the talent from these guys is clear to see. Expect pure energy and catchy choruses from these guys, we personally can’t wait to see what else this band has got hidden up their sleeves!


Where are they performing? The Crescent

What time? 6:30pm

I think this band is yet to release a bad single so far, with only an assortment of singles out , its only a matter of time until they release a full length album and it will be explosive. Expect raucous riffs and big choruses to be coming out of the Crescent when these guys take to the stage.


Where are they performing? Dingwalls Canalside

What time? 9:30pm

Another name that we can only predict big things for in the future, Airways is already touring the world bringing their own brand of big indie rock, to a multitude of stages and I can only hope an album is somewhere in the pipeline as it will be massive!

Twin Atlantic

Where are they performing? Koko

What time? 7:15pm

One of the more well known bands on the list that shouldn’t need too much introduction. These guys are currently embarking on a mini tour round the UK making appearances at Slam Dunk and 2000 Trees and you would be just silly to miss these guys.


Where are they performing? The Black Heart

What time? 5:30pm

Leaning on the slightly heavier side of the rock spectrum with this one, SHVPES have always been one of the more exciting bands to break out ever since one of their first singles ‘State of Mind’ now having released their new single ‘Undertones’ incorporating some synths here and there, it sounds bloody nice, and you need to check these out.

The Faim

Where are they performing? The Dublin Castle

What time? 10pm

If pictures and videos of their shows are anything to go off, be prepared for tons of energy and bags of fun. These guys are on the way up and we can’t wait to see what is next for these guys. Anyone up for a bit of late night fun with The Faim?

Check back tomorrow for more selections from the MASSIVE line up that is Camden Rocks, you will not want to miss any of these guys!
