Camden Crawl 2013

A showcase, a pub crawl, a party.

The Basics

46 October 2013
London, United Kingdom

Across Camden Town each May, the bars stock up, the amps are plugged in, and the traffic stops. Over two days, a maelstrom of bands descend on North London's centre of 'alternative' culture for spoken word events, performances, games, clubnights – and literally hundreds of live shows. More than 25 venues take part, stretching from full-scale gig venues to intimate pubs. Discover new bands; see more live music in a day than in a normal week; and explore Camden Town's better and less well-known venues.

  • Whilst the event is, on the whole, very safe, and there will be a visible police presence, it is wise to take some sensible precautions when attending the Camden Crawl.

    • Drink responsibly (visit: www.drinkaware.co.uk for sensible advice).
    • Do NOT drink alcohol in the streets (you can be stopped and fined £500).
    • Keep personal belongings to a minimum (it will be hot in the venues and very crowded).
    • Especially do not bring large rucksacks/bags.
    • Go with at least one friend.
    • Avoid using mobile phones on the streets.
    • Use only licensed taxis (see below for more advice).
    • Avoid street dealers.
    • Leave your diamonds at home...

Our Recommendations

What We Love

What We Love

  • The alumni of Camden Crawl. Despite only launching in the early 1990s, Adele, Plan B, Example, Florence and the Machine have all graced its stages.

  • Will you spot the next big thing? The excitement comes from not knowing if you're about to see 30 minutes of the most beautiful, well-constructed, soulful pop music, or a half-hour long guitar based metal fest.

What To Know

What To Know

  • You will get a programme listing alll the acts playing at the Crawl; while you might want to do some research beforehand to scout out interesting shows, make sure you also go 'off-piste' and try a band you've never heard of!

  • While CC is more about discovery - finding new bands you've never heard of - there are also well-known headliners playing larger shows at venues like KOKO.
