on

British rock giants Feeder have been announced as the headline act for this year’s Camden Rocks Festival.

The Welsh rockers have been named alongside another 30 confirmed bands joining the line-up for the event, which takes place on 3 June at 25 venues across Camden Town.

With a career including no fewer than 25 Top 40 hits and more than five million record sales, including three Platinum and two Gold albums, Feeder returned from hiatus with their ninth record All Bright Electric. The album registered the band’s highest chart position since 2008 and marked their seventh top ten charting release.

Speaking on the announcement, Feeder frontman Grant Nicholas said: “It’s great to be playing Koko again as part of Camden Rocks Festival in my old haunt. I lived in Camden for over ten years and it’s where Feeder got started and played regularly back in the early and mid-nineties.

“I remember writing many songs like High and Just a Day in my old flat on Camden Road, and some fun nights at Feet First, the Electric Ballroom and the Underworld. It’s been almost 21 years since the release of Polythene, our first album, but Camden still holds a special place for us.”

Camden Rocks Festival 2017 sees a bigger line-up bigger than ever before, with the likes of The Coral, The Damned, Milburn, The Rifles, Reverend and The Makers, Carl Barat & The Jackals and many more topping the 250-band-strong bill, with further acts still to be announced. Alongside FEEDER, the further line-up additions announced today are:

Turbowolf, The Virginmarys, Desert Mountain Tribe, The Dirty Youth, Reigning Days, Bad Nerves, GOAN DOGS, Reverted, Lock, WIDE EYED BOY, BLANK PARODY, We came from wolves, Tiny Giant, False Heads, VALERAS, Curse of Lono, DAMN DICE, Sleepfire, Panic Island, Matty James, Cassidy, Couples, LILITH AND THE KNIGHT, The RPM’s, Via Dolorosa, Glam Skanks, They, Uncultured, The Luka State, Two Year Break and Nash.

All tickets to the fifth event in 2016 sold out and 2017 looks set to be no different. Tickets cost just £39.50, subject to booking and transaction fees, and are now available now here.
