Crossfire confirmed to curate at Camden Crawl 2012!

We are very proud to announce today that CROSSFIRE have been invited back to the Camden Crawl in 2012! This will be our third year of being involved as one of the curators of the festival, so we are stoked that in May, we will be rolling out a superb line up of new bands once again to grace this get together.

Over the last 2 years we hosted The Barfly Club, so you never know, we could end up with a different venue this year and at this stage of the organisation and right now, we have no idea what bands will be on the bill. Planning will begin behind the scenes and In the next 2 months we will subject a list of over 100 new bands to the Crawl comittee, so if you have any recommendations for our line up this year, please get in touch.

The Crawl will take place on the 4th-6th May on Bank Holiday weekend in Camden, London, NW1. Earlybird tickets are on sale now at the cheapest price for those who are smart. See you there.

The Camden Crawl 2011 preview

So it’s that time of the year again as you will probably know, Crossfire have been invited back to this year’s Gaymers Camden Crawl as one of the 20 curators. This year’s Crawl taking place on the Bank Holiday weekend of April 30th-May 1st is set to be one of the best ever with some great artists playing in North London’s most creative spot for music. Watch the video of the good times at last year’s Camden Crawl here and reminisce on last year’s carnage before being introduced to what’s coming up.

We are back at The Barfly on Sunday May 1st and will kick the night off from 6pm downstairs with the CROSSFIRE SOUND SYSTEM packed with a mix of punk rock, hip hop, psych-garage, classic indie and rock tracks. We will also see guest DJ sets from our female guests this year kicking off with SWEET DREAMS (pic below) who will bring a bag full of filthy hip hop and for the grand finale we welcome West London’s Dub Step slayer RITA MAIA.

Rita (pictured below) is a founder of Badmood, a collective championing new bass-driven music in Portugal. Based in London she hosts the Saturday night electronic music show, ‘Sine of the Times’, on the critically-renowned Resonance FM, playing bass-heavy music from all around. So expect hammers until close at 2am.

We will be announcing our venue line up in the next week so look out for the news of who has been picked to play this year from the list of acts confirmed below. You will not be disappointed though as our headline act will be exploding in your faces at 10.30pm as you would expect. For those who know us well, you will be aware that we love skateboarding and hardcore so there’s only band on this list that actually fits the bill. Work it out from this list below and look out for the announcement in our news section. There will also be an amazing post-punk band, a well known hip hop set from a Ninjatune act and an indie band playing on the night. All to be revealed next week.
