“I’ve been trying to book Public Image Limited (PiL) for years so it’s great to finally have them playing Camden Rocks this year,” adds event organiser Chris McCormack.“ and the Sex Pistols are the reason i got into music, easily the biggest influence personally and i’m sure for a lot of bands playing the festival. Public Image Limited (PiL) at the Electric Ballroom on their 40th anniversary is going to be incredible.”
