The Coral and Reverend and the Makers set for Camden Rocks Festival

The veteran bands are joined by young pretenders including Asylums and BlackWaters


The Coral and Reverend and the Makers lead the latest additions to June’s Camden Rocks Festival.

The metropolitan, multi-venue event had previously confirmed Carl Barat and the Jackals, The Rifles, Milburn and more for 3 June.

Liverpool’s The Coral and Sheffield’s Reverend and the Makers continue the theme of featuring long-established names at the head of a bill of otherwise mostly local and national newcomers.

Today’s new additions also include Asylums, Brawlers and BlackWaters.

We already knew about performances from Young Kato, The King Blues, Habitats, Yonaka and The Blinders, and 150 more are still yet to be announced.

The Coral take a spot as a main headliner, alongside punk legends The Damned.

Camden Rocks takes place at around 20 venues, including KOKO, Dingwalls, Electric Ballroom and Camden Assembly.
