I also can’t wait to see The Main Grains – I love their debut mini album, “Don’t Believe Everything You Think” but it will be my first time watching them play live.  The Main Grains are made up of Danny McCormack (ex The Wildhearts, The Yo-Yo’s) ,guitarists Ben Marsden (ex- Modern day Dukes) and JJ Watt (ex – Spill 16 & Whiskey Haze) along with drummer Ginna Rhodes (ex – Psychobabylon & Phluid).  They will be popular with fans of The Ramones, The Wildhearts, Phil Spector, Blondie and The Yo-Yo’s.

I’m also really excited about seeing lots of new up and coming bands as I always come away with a long list of new music I want to buy and new bands I want to follow- it’s so inspiring.


, Camden Rocks!

Once again Kraken are back sponsoring Camden Rocks and the Kraken Hunter and Krakenettes will be giving out lots of free delicious Kraken Rum Samples- make the most of these!

The After Parties

Another decision to make it which after show are you going to?  The choices are Proud Galleries – Aftershow, 11:30pm – 3am, featuring DJ sets from Drew McConnell of Babyshambles and Gem Precious, “rock and roll DJ’s in one of Camden’s most legendary venues” (it even has a hot tub) or Camden Rocks Club @ The Underworld –  11pm – 4am, featuring DJ set from Jon Mahon and special guest appearance from Killa Kela, Rock and Roll DJs, 11pm – 3am, “where the best rock DJ’s and cheap drinks offers provide a winning combination to see you through until 3am”.

Tickets  for both after shows are £10 (subject to booking fee) are available here.

Where to Stay 

, Camden Rocks!

There are still last minute rooms available from Laterooms from £50.  Airbnb have rooms available from £30.  Holiday Inn Camden Lock also has a small selection of rooms available from £200 (they also have a King Bed Penthouse Suite with a Balcony overlooking Camden Lock).


I’m really looking forward to Camden Rocks Festival this year!  Will you be there?  What bands would you go and watch?
