Venue: Camden Rocks
Words: Billy Edmonds
Camden Rocks Festival is back after last years huge success, which saw bands such as The Blackout & Hacktivist taking part.
Camden Rocks Festival is slightly different to others, as its based around Camden Town’s local venues with top acts such as Bullet for My Valentine, While She Sleeps headlining and many more appearing throughout the day, so this is a festival you really don’t want to miss!
Even London doesn’t get such big names playing alongside on the same day that often, so if I was you reading this now, I’d go straight to the link below and get tickets before they sells out! (If you’re buying your tickets now, please, remember to bring the card you paid with WITH YOU, as you will need it for proof of purchase before you can swap your ticket for Festival Wristband which you can add to the rest of your wristband collection!
Please note this is a OVER 18’S EVENT.
For just £30 you get access to this mega event that’s spread out across 20 different venues located all over Camden Town and get a chance to see over 200 bands – all of different genres.
Camden Rocks Festival really brings back what Camden Town stands for and that is the Rock & Metal Capital of the world.
