A whole host of new names have been added to the bill for the Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin, the newest addition to Ireland's already stellar summer festival line-up. On Friday the 11th and Saturday the 12th of May, Dublin city centre will be transformed into one giant festival site as fifteen of Dublin's most revered venues will play host to more than 100 Irish and international acts, who have been selected by some of Ireland's top music professionals. This will be the first time that the Camden Crawl will have taken place outside of London, where it's been a regular summer attraction over the last fifteen plus years.
Weekend tickets will cost you €40, while single day tickets are available for €25 (and you can buy 'em via entertainment.ie/tickets, cheaper than our biggest competitor I might add!). Your ticket will be exchanged for a wristband which will allow you access to all venues, stages and after-show parties.
