Celebrating Camden’s Thriving Music Scene With A Stellar Line-up

Camden Rock Festival is proud to announce a further sixty bands for the 2019 edition, including The Pigeon Detectives, scheduled to perform on Saturday. Hailing from Yorkshire, the all-English quartet has established itself amongst the country’s best Indie bands. From their platinum selling debut album “Wait For Me” to the deeper and more reflective fifth record “Broken Glances”, The Pigeon Detectives have the catalogue and the experience to deliver a show to be remembered.

Alongside these artists, Camden Rocks also announces fifty of the finest emerging acts in the today’s rock landscape including: fresh back from SXSW exciting new Glasgow punk rockers The Dunts, the new band from Guy McKnight (singer from Matchbox B-Line Disaster) The DSM IV and new project Novacub from members of Bloc Party, alt-metal Skarlett Riot fronted by the brilliant Chloe “Skarlett” Drinkwater; English promising punk four-piece Catch Fire; indie multi-talented newcomers Hello Operator and many more.

Anything goes in Camden and on the weekend of Camden Rocks, this is amplified to ten.

 

Taking place on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd June 2019 and now in its eighth year, the festival gives music fans the opportunity to see over 400 bands play across 20 venues all within a stones throw of each other in Camden Town, London.
