Camden Rocks Festival has announced the first names for the 2017 line-up. Punk legends The Damned, stoner rock giants Orange Goblin, and The Ruts DC are the first to be revealed from the bill.
The fest will host over 250 bands and artists across 25 of Camden Town’s revered venues this June 3rd 2017, including legendary Camden venue KOKO.
Ahead of their headline set at the Electric Ballroom, The Damned’s Captain Sensible reveals, “Camden Market is partially responsible for the sartorial disaster that is Captain Sensible, as I’ve purchased more stage clobber there than anywhere else. And Camden was punk central in the 70s too so in some respects The Damned playing Camden Rocks is a return to the scene of the crime. We’ll probably time-warp the set list to reflect the 40th Anniversary of punk, so expect a lively one!”
In addition to The Damned, Orange Goblin and The Ruts DC, further first names confirmed for Camden Rocks Festival 2017 include: Hey! Hello!, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Young Kato, Stone Broken, Big Boy Bloater and the Limits, MOSES, Screaming Eagles, Imperial Leisure, Habitats, The Main Grains, Courage My Love, Black Orchid Empire, MassMatiks, Hands Off Gretel, Fizzy Blood, Broken Witt Rebels, Forte, Stereo Juggernaut, Black Sixteen, Lucie Barat & The Au Revoirs, HVMM, Halflives, Weirds, Frauds, Alana Bondi, Itamar, Oxygen Thief, The Franklys, CUTE CUTE DEΔTH, Heel, The Kut, & Secret Cameras
