As is tradition, the full venue schedules will remain secret until the event and surprise guests may appear at any time and at any venue. The top quality evening line-ups are democratically selected by a committee of music industry tastemakers, including radio DJs, club promoters, journalists and record labels with the most hotly tipped acts appearing on the bill both days and featuring on the festival’s annual free compilation album. 15% off early bird weekend tickets for the Gaymers Camden Crawl 2011 will go on sale 9:00 am Thursday 28th October. Initial line-ups and 10th birthday celebration events will be announced January 2011.
Immediately following the festival’s fringe programme of cutting edge arts during the daylight hours, the main thoroughfares of Camden will literally come alive with music. Straddling more than twenty venues, including The Forum, Koko, Electric Ballroom, Dingwalls and Jazz Café, dotted across the high streets of Camden & Kentish Town, the Crawl evening schedule features over 200 of the best up & coming artists from the UK and abroad alongside seminal greats and very special guests. The evening line up kicks off from 5:30 pm and runs until the wee hours on both days of the weekend.
Upon arrival at the festival each ticket holder is presented with an all-access wristband, programme guide, timetable and free download album to help plot his/her day’s adventure. ‘Crawlers’ are then granted unlimited access to all official daytime and evening venues and parties capacity permitting.
