Camden Crawl Opening Night Party: Death In Vegas + Icona Pop + Engine-Earz Experiment + Echo Lake + Funeral Suits
The 2012 Camden Crawl, scheduled for Friday 4th – Sunday 6th May, will be one of Olympic proportions. Now in its 11th year, the festival will stretch to three days over the first May bank holiday weekend with the addition of its brand new opening night extravaganza hosted on Friday 4th May.
The opening night marathon will be held at the area's historic KOKO venue. Death In Vegas have been confirmed as the special guest headliner on a bill that will feature six live acts from 5pm and culminate with a special edition of Club NME until 4am.
In addition to the Crawl's famously impressive evening live music schedule, the festival boasts an extensive arts festival throughout each day of the event. From midday to 6:00pm, the confirmed programme for the 2012 daytime fringe includes cutting edge events from various disciplines, including comedy, storytelling & spoken word, unconventional theatre, craft, visual art and traditional music. It also features a variety of outdoor events, an alternative poster, print & record fair as well as interactive fun & games.
**Tickets are to be exchanged for wristbands which allow unlimited entry to each of the participating venues as individual capacities permit. Ticket price includes lanyard programme guide, festival magazine and 2012 compilation album.**
With all the shadowy enigma of Neu! or Throbbing Gristle, Richard Fearless was one of the most exciting and unique artists to emerge from the '90s UK dance scene. Fusing the sound of dirty, distorted guitars with pounding rhythms, layered loops and wired, urban soliloquies from a plethora of guest names, Death In Vegas cut some of that era's most unusual records, creating a sound that was spacious and other-worldly, while also segueing with the pop mainstream. Richard Fearless made a return in 2011 after a seven-year absence.

Electrifying UK dubstep collective Engine-Earz Experiment are dubstep's first fully live act. Having already won over an assorted army of fans from Rusko and Nitin Sawhney right through to Adam F and Mike Skinner they aim to now smash the glass divides between genres and ideologies fusing dubstep with elements of drum'n'bass, electronica, alternative rock and indigenous musics from around the world.

The Funeral Suits are three young men from Dublin and Limerick. The three came together in 2008 to write a soundtrack for the apocalypse but when that didn't happen they formed the Funeral Suits. Expansive and heavy without being overpowering the trio's debut album has been produced by the legendary Stephen Street, and the band have been enjoying the support of some of alternative music's biggest players
