Following a sold-out sixth year in 2017, Camden Rocks Festival has today announced the first acts for the 2018 line-up and the acclaimed annual North London event is confirmed to take place this coming June 2nd.

Set to host over two hundred bands and artists in more than twenty of Camden Town’s revered venues, the festival will be headlined by Newcastle-Upon-Tyne based Maxïmo Park.

Also confirmed to perform are fabled post-punk originators Public Image Limited (PiL), bringing their boundary smashing, forward-thinking sounds to Camden Rocks for the first time.

Camden Rocks has also announced that Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic, grebo gurus Pop Will Eat Itself, post-Sex Pistols legends The Professionals, Corby heavy-weight titans RagingSpeedhorn, ‘bourbon soaked gypsy blues bop n’ strollers’ Urban Voodoo Machine and eclectic Manchester punks Sonic Boom Six will also bring their thrilling sights and sounds to the event.

From buzzing new bands starting out, rubbing shoulders with established rock giants, Camden Rocks has always prided itself on providing a platform for new talent. These join an ever-growing rank of bands being added to a line-up that covers every style across the many indie, rock, metal and punk genres. Other acts confirmed to play include:
