The initial line-up for this year's Camden Crawl has been announced, with the most notable inclusions being Scottish indie-poppers Teenage Fanclub, the multi-faceted Billy Childish and 2009 Mercury Prize winning rapper Speech Debelle.
Elsewhere on the bill are Cornershop, The Delays, Leeds band Pulled Apart By Horses, Norway's Casiokids, and the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. Those super-organised folks who want to plan their moves across north London well in advance will have to remain patient, as the full venue line-ups and stage-times won't be released until the actual weekend.
The festival, now in its 15th year, takes place on May Bank Holiday weekend -- which this year falls starts on Saturday May 1 May 2 -- and sees the great and the good from the music industry playing in venues ranging from the vast Koko and the grand Roundhouse to the more intimate and familiar settings of Dingwalls and Dublin Castle.
Alongside the music, there's also a programme of comedy, theatre, visual art, quizzes crafts, and even a bit of karaoke to keep all and sundry entertained during the daytime, for which all wristband holders have access to. Last year MTV hosted the Roundhouse, and they do so again this year, with various film sets being planned, all to be announced in March. Crawlers would also be advised not to peak too early, however, as festivities continue until 4am on both days.
Weekend tickets for the festival are now on sale, with £2 from each purchase being donated to the War Child charity.
