Echo & The Bunnymen, Eagulls and New Young Pony Club (pictured) are two international names added to Camden Crawl Dublin today. The latter will play the Friday May 3rd opening night with Dirty Beaches, Big Deal, Tropics and Windings (this is a separate ticket price) and the former will be playing the festivities over the weekend.
More importantly (to me anyway), Nialler9 will be hosting two stages at Sweeneys on May 4th and 5th. The second stage lineup will include the indie atmospherics of Come On Live Long, the chamber folk of Slow Skies, the haunted dubstep duo Ghosts, the heady electronica of Adultrock, the garage rock of Hunk!, the folk pop of Liza Flume and the deep electronica of Terriers.
That adds to the previously announced bill of Black Lips, PVT, Amateur Best, No Ceremony///, Holy Other and more. There’s also a free downloadable 15-track mixtape of bands on the lineup for you to download via 7Digital – Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin 2013 MIXTAPE: #2.
