For those who didn’t tune into this process last year and wonder what the hell we are talking about the process works like this. The bands shortlisted by the many curators who are available to play are picked one by one by each individual curator in turn. Other curators may well pick the bands you want in advance of your turn and vice versa so you do end up with some surprises on your bill as we have done again this year, but generally most people walk out with at least 2 bands they desperately wanted.
We cannot reveal our full line up just yet but we will have 5 bands on the bill at the Barfly club on Sunday May 1st. What we can tell you is that we of course (by the rules) have a varied bill of genres that include indie, hip hop, post punk and thrash. The line up’s are picked like this so that the ‘Crawl’ actually works and people move from venue to venue.
