As spring closes in, the annual May Bank Holiday Camden Crawl music marathon nears the completion of its 2012 line up.  The variety of highlights from his year’s event continues to mount up with the welcome return of Micachu & The Shapes to the live arena, a debut Crawl appearance by Turner Prize winning artist Martin Creed and his band, the groundbreaking dancefloor highs from Rustie  and the return of Veronica Fall’s alt pop brilliance and the sassy street smart grime of East London’s Mz Bratt. These sparkling gems are but a few of the following new additions just announced to appear at the North London festival set to take place 4th – 6th May. In traditional Camden Crawl form, major special guests will be revealed shortly prior to the event.
