Also joining the bill is London’s very own SPECTOR and CLOCK OPERA. The former’s hugely anthemic songs have made them one of the standout new bands of 2012 whilst Clock Opera’s frenetic, bleep–ridden synth rock has made them another of the most talked about bands of this year. Other highlights include rising star of Canada’s new breed of independent musicians DAN MANGAN and the warm the auditory breeze of FRANCOIS AND THE ATLAS MOUNTAINS whose debut album ‘E Volo Love’ is out now on Domino Records.
These acts and a huge smorgasbord of others will be playing alongside previously announced performers such as Death In Vegas, Alabama 3,Glasvegas, The Futureheads, Gaz Coombes, The Raincoats, Kids In Glass Houses, Actress, Lady Leshurr, Ghetts, Sway, And So I Watch You From Afar. Comedians such as Rufus Hound, Henning When, Tony Law and Abandonman will also be taking to the stage this arts and music extravaganza. In typical Camden Crawl form, a handful of surprise will be revealed shortly prior to or at the event itself.
