Looking forward to the festival, Ginger Wildheart says: “Last year’s Camden Rocks was the best fun I can imagine ever having without the use of straps and rabbits. I can’t wait to play again this year. I’ve had a word with the police and they’ve said it’s fine as long Chris McCormack accepts responsibility for me. See you at the bar, motherfuckers. I’ll be the naked one covered in mud.”
Richie Ramone, who performed and wrote with the Ramones from 1982 – 1987 says: “Camden with it’s killer vibe, is always my favourite spot when I am in London. This year is extra special because the band is playing the Camden Rocks Festival, and I couldn’t be happier. It has always been on my wish list, and I can’t wait to hang out and see a bunch of cool bands, party, and hook up with old friends. Fuck yeah!”
