Festival organiser Chris McCormack said, "We’re ecstatic to have such a legendary punk band like The Damned playing Camden Rocks Festival this year, they were one of the first bands I saw play live up in Newcastle, and a band I’ve seen more than any other - a huge inspiration.
"As always, this year will be made up of all the best high-energy guitar bands we can get our hands on, along with all the best new bands we find through our Camden Rocks Presents shows we put on throughout the year in the lead up. Even I’d buy a ticket for this!"

Hello, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Young Kato, Stone Broken, Big Boy Bloater and the Limits, Moses, Screaming Eagles, Imperial Leisure, Habitats, The Main Grains, Courage My Love, Black Orchid Empire, Massmatiks, Hands Off Gretel, Fizzy Blood, Broken Witt Rebels, Forte, Stereo Juggernaut, Black Sixteen, Lucie Barat & The Au Revoirs, HVMM, Halflives, Weirds, Frauds, Itamar, Oxygen Thief, The Franklys, Cute Cute Death, Heel, The Kut, Secret Cameras, and Alana Bondi.
