Feeder announced as main headliner for Camden Rocks Festival

The Welsh veterans join bands including The Coral and Reverend and the Makers on the bill


Feeder have been revealed as the main headliner for this year’s Camden Rocks Festival as part of the latest announcement.

The new additions also include Turbowolf and The Virginmarys, as the 250 band lineup comes close to completion.

Previous announcements have included other veteran acts including The Coral and The Damned, plus lots of new and unsigned bands from around the country.

Feeder, however, will be the official marquee name, on the back of their comeback album All Bright Electric in 2016.

In their heyday they were one of the UK’s biggest rock bands, famed for their major hits Buck Rogers, Just A Day and Just The Way I’m Feeling.

Their current lineup is ever-present frontman Grant Nicholas and bass guitarist and backing vocalist Taka Hirose, although they perform as a five-piece with touring members.

Other bands newly announced for Camden Rocks 2017 include Desert Mountain Tribe, The Dirty Youth, Tiny Giant, False Heads and Panic Island.

Camden Rocks takes place on Saturday 3 June across multiple venues, including Electric Ballroom, KOKO and Dingwalls.

Tickets are priced at £39.50 plus booking fees, and are likely to sell out ahead of the event.
