Scheduled to take place in just six weeks time, the 10th edition of the annual Gaymers Camden Crawl is set to launch the 2011 festival season with an eclectic line up studded with the forthcoming year’s best new artists and a huge stable of special guests.
Joining the bill which already includes such names as British Sea Power, Saint Etienne, Simian Mobile Disco, Villagers and Toddla T are The Lemonheads, Razorlight, Guillemots, Miles Kane, Wolf Gang and Yasmin. These new additions promise to make 2011 event the most talent packed to date.

PLUS VERY SPECIAL GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED
In addition to this year’s extraordinary live music line up, the festival continues to develop the breadth of its daytime fringe arts festival. Featuring a vast array of comedic talent, visual art and crafts exhibitions, spoken word and performance theatre, interactive events & games and, of course, live music, the daytime carnival of entertainment sprawls across an additional thirty Camden Town venues for the weekend from 12 – 6pm both dates.
Immediately following the festival’s fringe programme of cutting edge arts during the daylight hours, the main thoroughfares of Camden will literally come alive with music. Straddling more than twenty venues, including The Forum, Koko, Electric Ballroom, Dingwalls and Jazz Café, dotted across the high streets of Camden & Kentish Town, the Crawl evening schedule features over 200 of the best up & coming artists from the UK and abroad alongside seminal greats and very special guests. The evening line up kicks off from 5:30 pm and runs until the wee hours on both days of the weekend.
Upon arrival at the festival each ticket holder is presented with an all-access wristband, programme guide, timetable and free download album to help plot his/her day’s adventure. ‘Crawlers’ are then granted unlimited access to all official daytime and evening venues and parties capacity permitting. As is tradition, the full venue schedules will remain secret until the event and surprise guests may appear at any time and at any venue.
