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.
Until then, check out this year’s line up across the Crawl, enjoy Tom Halliday’s shots from last year’s party at Crossfire and get your tickets now before they all sell out from here.
