The Camden Crawl will introduce the Bank Holiday festival for the first time with an opening night marathon at Camden’s historic KOKO venue on Friday 4th May. As an explosive start to what promises to be the best Crawl ever, psychedelic electronic innovators DEATH IN VEGAS (aka Richard Fearless) will top the evenings bill which celebrates this landmark occasion. “We’re really over the moon to be playing the opening night of this brilliant festival. We’re going to bring our full on sonic and visual assault to Koko, our first time playing this amazing venue and first time playing Camden Crawl.” - Richard Fearless
Opening night revelry will commence at 5pm with a four-strong support line up comprised of an eclectic array of 2012’s most promising new live acts. A special edition of Club NME will close the night ahead of the launch the full-blown festival the following day. Full details of the opening night line up will be released imminently.
