Start thinking May Bank Holiday kids. It really isn’t that far. And with the May Bank Holiday comes the legendary Camden Crawl, which has just announced an extensive roster of up and coming live artists and celebrated guests scheduled to appear. May 4 – 6 will officially open the UK festival season in Camden Town, where a single ticket allows access to more than 300 gigs and events.
Following the opening night event on Friday 4 May at KOKO, the full festival schedule runs from midday on Saturday 5 May until the early hours of the following bank holiday Monday.
A slew of acts was announced yesterday, and we do apologise for the use of caps – the list is far too long for us to re-type. As usual, the Camden Crawl contains a good mix of legendary acts and catch-them-before-they’re-huge gigs.
