Camden Rocks is one of the most exciting times of the year. This year the festival falls on the 1stand 2ndof June. With 400 bands across 20 venues in one of the most recognisable parts of London, it gives festival goers the chance to experience a huge array of incredible, established music and emerging and local talent all in one place. Camden Rocks is renowned for celebrating the thriving London music scene and this year is no different. With just under two months to go, Turtle Tempo are here to give you a rundown of the Camden Rocks Festival 2019 line-up by telling you the acts that we’re looking forward to seeing at the festival and the acts that you should definitely check out.
Eliza and the Bear
Eliza and the Bear are definitely going to deliver an incredible live performance – every live performance of theirs is laced with energy and an amazing atmosphere that gets everyone moving. Eliza and the Bear have changed the game of music – they’re producing some insane work and they’re playing on some of the best stages in the country. The four piece have some absolute tunes and I can’t wait to hear them against the backdrop of Camden Rocks Festival. To get prepared for Camden Rocks, you should definitely listen to ‘Friends’ from their 2016 self-titled album and ‘Higher’ from ‘Group Therapy’, released in 2018. You can see Eliza and the Bear at Camden Rocks Festival on Sunday 2ndJune.
Tom Lumley and the Brave Liaison
Tom Lumley is a talented singer-songwriter from Cambridge who alongside his band, Tom Lumley and the Brave Liaison – have amassed a dedicated following through his writing and gigging over the past few years. They’ve gone onto play with some incredible artists at some insane venues and festivals over the past few years and had their music reach high in the UK Rock and Album chart from iTunes. We’re looking forward to seeing this incredible group of musicians play at Camden Rocks and we’ll definitely be there right at the front as we guarantee they’ll put on an insane show. We’d suggest listening to ‘Just Like the Light’, ‘Dream City’ and latest release ‘Modern Age’ before the festival to get you excited for it!
Red Rum Club
Red Rum Club is a sextet hailing from Liverpool. They have an interesting sound which combines retro sounds with a modern twist. They again have some catchy songs which will get stuck in your head for days but in the best possible way – we promise. Their live sets promise to be dynamic and exciting and definitely one that you shouldn’t miss out on. We recommend listening to ‘Friend of A Friend’, ‘Would You Rather Be Lonely?’ and ‘Calexico’ ahead of their set at Camden Rocks as they’re all songs that will definitely put you in the mood and get you excited for seeing the band live.
Luna Bay are one of London’s most promising emerging artists on the scene at the moment. Their catchy, rhythmic releases and charismatic presence as a band led to them selling out their headline shows at Camden Assembly, Omeara and announcing their show at 800-capacity Scala in November, all within a year. Luna Bay are incredible live and we can promise you you’ll come out humming the tunes for the rest of the day. They are definitely one not to miss and you can catch them at the festival on the 2nd June. Check out their latest single ‘Silence’ here and if you think you’ll love them so much you want to see them again later in the year (which we definitely think you will), get yourself a ticket to their Scala show before it sells out here: https://www.seetickets.com/event/luna-bay/scala/1327495
London quartet Drool looks to be a promising addition to the Camden Rocks line-up. With regular performances in and around London, the band have sought out a dedicated fan-base. Exciting things are definitely to come for this band and they even made Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Longlist. Their latest single ‘Fun’ effortlessly entangles catchy lyrics with a defining and standout sound – it’s definitely one that you’ll want to listen to again and again so make sure you don’t miss out seeing them at Camden Rock’s Festival on June 2nd.
Obviously, this is just a small slice of what to expect on the weekend, there are hundreds of artists at the festival that we’re all so excited to see live. Camden Rocks always promise and deliver an incredible weekend of specially curated music and this year will be no different. Day or Weekend Tickets to Camden Rocks Festival are available here but be quick – all early bird tickets sold out before any bands were even announced so they’re not going to stick around for long.
