Update: Camden Crawl 2012

By on Thursday, 22nd March 2012 at 9:00 am

This year’s Camden Crawl just keeps growing! Yet more bands and even some comedians have been added to the already stellar lineup for the May Bank Holiday weekend extravaganza that takes over the music capital of London.

Joining the likes of Death In Vegas, Rolo Tomassi and Alabama 3, are the Scottish indie-rock titans Glasvegas, dancey post-punkers the Futureheads, and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes will be performing a solo show. Also announced for the jam-packed weekend of entertainment are comedians Rufus Hound, Henning When and Andrew Maxwell plus many more, who will take over the eight comedy stages throughout Camden.

But that’s not all to be excited about because the lovely people at Camden Crawl are releasing a very special and FREE mix tape to download. If you’re heading along to the weekend (and if you’re not, why not?!) then get in the mood with some top tracks from Antlered Man, Dutch Uncles, True Tiger and Kwes amongst others. Download it here; you can listen to the songs in the widget below.

Weekend tickets are priced at £67.50 + booking fees, although day tickets and VIP packages are available. For more information and to buy tickets visit official Web site. Make sure you’re in north London this May for what is gearing up to be one of the best festivals of the year.
