Panic Island are a band in the vein of many typical modern alternativerock bands. Driven by catchy hooks and solid guitar work they fuse the sounds of established bands such as QOTSA, Foo Fighters with the pop sensibilities of The Amazons. What’s more, all of them answered all our questions about Camden and the festival so we think they’re good value for money too, and funny. Caution though: the following article contains ‘facts’ which may not necessarily be true. Take it away Arron Sans, Vinnie M, George Todd and Jorge Gill..
When did your relationship with Camden start?
A – I remember asking my dad where I could get a cool leather jacket like Joe Strummer or something. He said Camden would nail it. So from that moment it was put up on a pedestal!
G – We met at a party a few years ago, saw each other from across the room and I knew it was love at first sight.
J – I wouldn’t quite say I’m really in a relationship with Camden but my first memories of Camden was going to all the shops with my mates and buying weird stuff haha! we were like 12.
V – When I first set foot on the area. It instantly blew my mind, it felt like the coolest most rock place I’d ever been.

Have you played in Camden before?
Yeah man!! I don’t think you can call yourself a London band if you haven’t played in Camden!

J – I cracked open a cold one with the boys! Only joking i found out in the morning so i enjoyed a really good cup of tea with my mum.
G – I fainted, turns out I pissed my pants as well……all with excitement.
A – Honestly, I rang my sister, I had to tell her that I wouldn’t be making her wedding!
