This bank holiday weekend over 150 acts will perform in Dublin as part of Camden Crawl 2013.

With a mix of music, comedy plus a number of fringe events, Camden Crawl will take place in 15 venues across the capitol from Friday 3 to Sunday May 5.

Speaking at the event, 2fm's Dan Hegarty told RTÉ Ten: “If you were at last year’s Camden Crawl Dublin, you’ll know that this May bank holiday weekend is going to be crazy!

"The festival will be taking over 15 venues around Dublin city centre with acts like PVT, Echo & The Bunnymen, Low Sea, and countless other acts.

"It’s a case of trying to cover as much ground as you can in an attempt to catch as many acts as you physically can!”

The Alternative presenter will be presenting at the event: “I’ll be hosting two nights at JJ Smyths [Saturday May 4 and Sunday May 5], where you can see The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock, Grouse, and Kid Karate on Saturday, and Daithi, Bantum, and Low Sea on Sunday.

“We have Slow Skies and Overhead, The Albatross playing live on the show.

"Slow Skies have just finished their second EP (On the Shore), which will be released on Monday. They’re a band that will impress anyone.

“Overhead, The Albatross have been in studio working on their debut album, so this is an escape for them.

"They’re brought some friends along with them, and will be performing some new material; great band in every sense of the description!”
