We can officially announce today that Crossfire has been invited as part of the artist committee to curate at The Camden Crawl 2010.
Each year the Gaymers Camden Crawl evening line up is selected by an esteemed panel of music industry tastemakers comprised of radio DJs, club promoters, journalists, record companies and musicians representing a broad spectrum of genres and we (somehow) have been asked to host a venue for another explosive Crossfire party alongside the likes of Warp Records, 1234, Bella Union, Rough Trade and many more.
Click here for the full line up of hosts for next year’s event that will be happening on the Bank Holiday weekend of May 1st and 2nd 2010. Every venue in Camden will have various established and upcoming bands, DJ’s poets for you to cruise past with your passes that get you into every show. Some venues host huge acts, others host unsigned stuff, but every venue’s line ups are picked by the curators.
So what happens next? Well, we have nominated 50 artists that we would ideally like to play in our venue (to be revealed soon) and these include legends such as the Sex Pistols and Madness to upcoming bands such as Chickenhawk, Drop the Lime, Pulled Apart By Horses and established acts like Torche, Gallows, Mastodon, Les Savy Fav, Black Lips and more. The artists we have requested are then confirmed as being available or not and then all of the artist committee bunfight for the bill they want from the available acts that are pooled into a pot. Much fun!
Get your earlybird tickets if you are keen before they sell out and we will update you on our plans once we have figured out what sort of a night we will be curating. Rest assured though it will be one of the most explosive nights we will ever put on for you, so spread this good word as we are stoked!
