Camden Crawl Dublin

If you’re wondering quite how Dublin can have its own Camden Crawl, well, there’s a Camden Street isn’t there? Ha, that’s you told.

Yes, a new spin-off from the North London multi-venue festival will launch in Dublin this May, taking place in fifteen venues between the city’s Camden Street and Temple Bar on 11 and 12 May. The new festival will be sponsored by phone firm Meteor, whose name will be included in the title. Bands already confirmed to play include Alarmist, Becoming Real, Clock Opera, Dutch Uncles, D/R/U/G/S, Hands Up Who Wants To Die, Jogging, LaFaro and Laura Sheeran.

Says Meteor’s Retail Marketing Manager John Anslow: “Meteor is a brand with a long standing association with music and Irish music in particular. Supporting emerging talent is key for us and this partnership will bring with it the opportunity to showcase some of our country’s best musicians whilst creating an affordable live music event”.
