Not content with festivals putting tickets on sale the minute doors from the previous year have shut, the Camden Crawl is today getting in on the bandwagon by putting tickets for it's 2010 event on sale next week, 29th October.
Held next year on May Bank Holiday (Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd May), the Crawl is our annual trudge around the beer cup trodden streets of Camden and Chalk Farm trying to fit in as many different bands as we can in 48 hours. There's quite a bit of queuing involved, but unless you're left trying to get into Proud at midnight in the rain it's normally worth it.
The 2010 event will be held in conjunction with War Child with the first 1000 tickets sending £2 Warchild's way and a specially made compilation CD your way. In addition, all ticket holders will be invited to a special fundraising event on November 4 which promises secret surprise guests and free entry before 8pm. The line-up for the actual festival won't be announced until next year, so it's nice to see an event putting thought into convincing us that buying tickets early is actually worth it.
A two day pass is £54 and available as of 29th October from the Camden Crawl site. If that sounds a bit much we would expect one day passes will be on sale early next year.
