ASYLUMS aim to go wild at Camden Rocks - Q+A

London's Camden Rocks starts rockin the streets of Camden on Saturday June 3.

If you still haven't got around to working out just who to see, we will be suggesting a few names we are banking on over the coming week.


The Southend on Sea crew will no doubt bring plenty of ‘Second Class Sex’, powering intros, manic guitars, infectious 90s Britrock nostalgia to Camden, and more besides. If you've seen their faces in a music magazine, but never seen them live, be sure to check out their two sets at Cam Rocks.

Camden Rocks - this your first time 'rocking Camden'?

We are no strangers to Camden, over the past few years we have been fortunate enough to play at Koko, Roundhouse and Camden Rocks twice.

Do you have any special treats planned for your festival fans on the day?

We do have a special secret set planned in the afternoon, keep an eye on our social media…

Do you have a different focus playing festivals to a standard gig?

It's always the same ethos no matter what for us: get in, play the wildest show possible and try not to lose any guitars after!

Where will you be playing and time?

We will be playing at The Hawley Arms – 7.30.

What is your favourite song in your set?

It would have to be set closer 'Slacker Shopper’ for me, Carnage ensues every time we play it!

What do you like best about festival gigs?

I like the unpredictability and the mixture of people in the crowd, some may be seeing you for the first time, others may be long term fans or bands you’ve met through touring.

Ever had a festival disaster?

Yes. At Camden Rocks two years ago, we got a little bit too 'jolly' after the show… cocktails and beers were consumed and sadly a guitar was lost on the tube with a load of our vinyls in the case!

Can you remember the first festival you ever went to as a punter?

Reading Festival - Nine Inch Nails followed by Smashing Pumpkins on the main stage, it was magic.

Before or after the crowds catch your set at Camden Rocks, who else would be your festival must-see tip?

Fizzy Blood and Pulled Apart By Horses.

Who else will you try and see on the day?

As above!
