Zebrahead, Black Spiders, Yuck & more confirmed for Camden Rocks 2016
Returning for its fifth year on June 4th, Camden Rocks Festival have just announced Californian skate-punks Zebrahead, power-rock force Black Spiders, and, revered for their brutal live shows, Nottingham’s HECK to join the 2016 bill alongside London’s acclaimed noise-pop connoisseurs Yuck, Finnish glam-metal giants Reckless Love, and many more.
The line-up already features some huge names in indie, punk, rock and metal, including The Cribs, Carl Barat & The Jackals, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Ginger Wildheart, Billy Bragg, Johnny Foreigner, Creeper, Sonic Boom Six and more.
Reckless Love say, “Camden Town is truly a special place for Reckless Love as we rocked our first ever UK show there back in 2010! We’ve returned many times to this beautiful place, and even held a smashing month-long residency at one of its many lively rock clubs. So it is with the greatest pleasure that we come back in 2016 to take part in the awesome Camden Rocks Festival!”
Black Spiders’ Pete Spiby adds, “Not just any festival, the festival that keeps on giving…us a slot. After last years’ awesome show, we’ll be back again, this time to headline a stage, with the full original line up!” Whilst HECK guitarist Jonny Hall said, “The line-up at Camden Rocks is ridiculously good this year, again, so we figured we had to blag our way onto it somehow. Damn right.”
It is also with much sadness that Camden Rocks today announce the cancellation of Escape The Fate and We Are The Ocean. Speaking of the change, Escape The Fate say, “due to insurmountable scheduling difficulties with a US tour we’re regrettably having to pull out of our performance at Camden Rocks Festival. We’ve looked into every possible solution we could think of, but to no avail. We’re sorry for this inconvenience to our fans and the organisers.”
Also joining the line-up today are: The Algorithm, Fort Hope, Palm Reader, Wars, FIZZY BLOOD, Yonaka, Vodun, The Bulletproof Bomb, Victoria, October Drift, Longy, Kenneths, L’ANIMA, Franko Fraize, ELECTRIC CHILD HOUSE, Oxygen Thief, COPE, Damn Dice, Coquin Migale, Nine Miles South, Naked Six, Brightlight City, The Dirty Mojo’s, Young Native, PIANO WIRE, Oh Boy, Nova Twins, Pretend Happy, Youth Killed It, deVience, The Scruff Club, Zoe West & The Hanging Baskets, Novellas, The Step, Rumble Fish, Dana Immanuel & the Stolen Band, One man Boycott and IV.
Packing in over two-hundred bands across twenty of Camden Town’s prestigious music venues, Camden Rocks will take place on Saturday June 4th 2016. Tickets are just £35 plus booking fees and are available here. Every year prior has sold-out and 2016 looks set to be no different, with even more bands still to be announced!
