Dublin to hold Camden Crawl gigs

By Greg Synnott

Every venue from Camden Street to Temple Bar will be packed with gig goers and musicians this May. More than 100 Irish and international acts are performing in fifteen venues as part of The Meteor Dublin Camden Crawl from May 11-12.

The line up includes a lot of Ireland’s best live acts with a mix of new discoveries including Meteor Choice Music Prize winner Jape as well as fellow choice nominees And So I Watch You From Afar.

The two day music marathon takes place in the heart of the city with an easily budgeted €40 price tag for the two days. The Meteor Dublin Camden Crawl has the makings of a great new annual festival, with this being the first ever sister event to the successful London Camden Crawl that’s been running since 1995.

Weekend tickets are exchanged for a wristband on the day which allows the owner unlimited access to all venues, stages and after parties over the two days with a complimentary programme and album.

The line up of artists is available right now but individual venue line-ups and stage times remain a completely mystery until the show day in an attempt to add to the exploratory vibe of the event.

Gig goers should arrive early as surprise guests are expected to appear at any time in any venue and for those of you are only drawn in by one day there are one day tickets for just €25.
Now for the exciting part, the line up:
