We're but two months away from the much-anticipated second edition of the Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin, which will take over the centre of Dublin across the May Bank Holiday Weekend with 150+ of the hottest music acts from at home and abroad.
The festival will opens its collective doors for an action-packed opening night party on Friday 3rd of May in Whelan's, with a performance from Montreal's Dirty Beaches, led by multi-instrumenatlist Alex Zhang Hungtai. Performing alongside them will be Meteor Choice nominees Windings, US/UK act Big Deal and London's Tropics (and more very special guests!). Tix for this will cost you a not-unreasonable €20 from entertainment.ie/tickets.
A glut of names for the Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin have already emerged in recent weeks, namely some of the Irish acts, but now it's time to reveal a selection of the international artists who'll grace our various stages throughout the course of the festival.
These will include, in no particular order:
Prince Rama | The Black Lips | Stubborn Heart | Amateur Best | Three Trapped Tigers | Gallops | PAWS | Arrows of Love | Kid Canaveral | We Were Evergreen | Concrete Knives | Lanterns On The Lake | Tropics | WIFE | Darkstar | PVT | No Ceremony | Holy Other
There are a host of names that we can't unveil at the moment due to restrictions but trust us on this one, they're really quite tasty and we can't wait to share!
