Camden Crawl 2008: First acts announced

Camden Crawl

Story by Jack Foley

BOMBAY Bicycle Club, Los Campesinos!, Acoustic Ladyland and Reuben are among the acts taking part in this year’s Camden Crawl (2008).

A long list of names has been released that showcases some of the emerging bands of the moment, including Does It Offend You, Yeah? and Noah and the Whale.

This year’s Camden Crawl takes place from Friday, April 18 to Saturday, April 19, 2008, and incorporates 25 venues and 130 new and renowned pioneering artists.

Following its expansion to a two day event last year, the 7th annual Camden Crawl has relocated from midweek to weekend in 2008.

As well as hosting its trademark melting pot of hotly tipped and breaking new artists alongside special guests and seminal greats each evening, the 2008 festival will grow to include an extensive daytime arts programme including acoustic sessions, live showcases, unsigned band competitions, pop quizzes, fan forums, comedy, performance art, film screenings, exhibitions and more.
