“I’ve been trying to book Public Image Limited (PiL) for years so it’s great to finally have them playing Camden Rocks this year,” enthuses event organiser Chris McCormack.


“John Lydon and the Sex Pistols are the reason I got into music, easily the biggest influence personally and i’m sure for a lot of bands playing the festival. Public Image Limited (PiL) at the Electric Ballroom on their 40th anniversary is going to be incredible.


“As always, the festival is as much about the emerging talent out there as it is the more established bands so get down early to catch some of these great new artists before they go supernova.”


Also among the first tranche of confirmed acts are perennial Über Rock faves Massive Wagons, Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors, The Main Grains, Towers Of London and Urban Voodoo Machine, as well as the likes of Hands Off Gretal, Raging Speedhorn, Shvpes, Skarlett Riot, Sonic Boom Six and Tequila Mockingbyrd.
