One of the best days in the British music calendar has now been doubled to two days as Camden Rocks Festival welcomes 400 bands over 20 venues next weekend (1 and 2 June).
This year’s event is headlined by punk rock legend meets singer/songwriter Frank Turner. The Million Dead and Mongol Horde man is joined on this year’s two-day bill by the likes of Random Hand, The Wonder Stuff, The Professionals and a host of exciting new rock talent led by Watford rockers Gold Key.
They join an impressive line-up for the two-day event on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June. That includes a whole host of exciting new bands such as wars, SHVPES, Area 11, Pretty Pistol, Acres, Phoxjaw, Ravenface, Hands Off Gretel and M A V E N.

There’s also an appearance by Norwegian hardcore punks Ondt Blod.
