The annual festival, which normally takes place in Camden each spring, has been pushed back to October 2013. Organisers have cited a 'craving to be different' as the reason behind the move, which sees the festival escape the overcrowded early summer festival schedule to a less populated time of the calendar. Full details of this year's Camden Crawl will be announced in the coming months. 

But Camden Crawl won't disappear from our springtime calendar altogether, with May Bank Holiday seeing the festival return to Dublin for its second year running.

Last year saw the debut Camden Crawl Dublin bring an eclectic mix of the best new international and Irish artists to the city centre streets extending from the Dublin’s Camden Street area to the popular Temple Bar locale.

This year's follow up event will feature more than 150 groundbreaking artists from the UK and around the world, alongside the best new Irish talent, playing across 20 city centre venues including an outdoor stage, a church, pubs and live music venues. This summer's event will also include a full programme of comedy and film. 

Set to take place Friday 3rd May to Sunday 5th May 2013, tickets for the Camden Crawl Dublin will be available as single day or weekend passes. Tickets and inclusive travel packages will be on sale from 9.00am Monday 11th February
