In Photos: Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin Launch Night - James Yuill + tieranniesaur @ Upstairs @ Whelans, Dublin (15.02.12)
Moshi Moshi-signed producer James Yuill and Dublin pop misfits tieranniesaur helped launch this year's inaugural Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin the other night at an invite-only soirée Upstairs @ Whelans. Yuill is perhaps best known for his prolific remix work, having had his way with tracks by the likes of We Have Band, Au Revoir Simone and Fenech Soler in recent times. tieranniesaur, of course, have just been given the remix treatment themselves, and both acts provided suitably upbeat sets that matched the 'good news' vibe of the occasion.
Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin 2012 will run across some fifteen city-centre venues on May 11 & 12 - one week after its parent festival, the long-running and award-winning Camden Crawl, takes place over in London. More than 100 up-and-coming Irish and international acts are set to perform over the course of the two nights, ensuring that gig-goers will be spoiled for choice. Artists already confirmed for this year's maiden edition include Clock Opera, Alarmist, D/R/U/G/S, tieranniesaur, Laura Sheeran and little xs for eyes, with further additions expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Day tickets for the event are priced at €25, while a weekend pass will set you back €40 - these are available now from a range of outlets including Tickets.ie, Entertainment.ie and HMV stores nationwide.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on how the lineup's shaping up between now and May, but for now check out the official festival website – which boasts some seriously cool Richard Scarryesque artwork – and follow Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin on Facebook and Twitter (#DublinCrawl).
