Catch the boat to the crawl

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSICNEWS -

If you though The Boat That Rocked was just a film about ra­dio piracy on the high seas, think again. The Me­teor Dublin Cam­den Crawl has an­nounced its very own rock’n’roll party cruise – well, sort of – be­tween Holy­head and Dublin.

The aim is to en­cour­age UK and Ir­ish ex-pat mu­sic fans alike to travel to the Dublin leg of the fes­ti­val, with the Stena-spon­sored ferry set­ting sail from the Welsh port on Fri­day, May 3rd and trav­el­ling overnight to Dublin. There ’ll be live per­for­mances and DJs on board, as well as a 24-hour bar and even a pi­rate ra­dio sta­tion to tie in with the theme.

Last week a num­ber of early re­lease fes­ti­val tick­ets at low prices (from ¤1 to ¤10) sold out, and early-bird week­end tick­ets at a re­duced rate of ¤40 are on sale til the end of Fe­bru­ary. We’ll have the full line-up for the event, which take place across var­i­ous Dublin venues on May 4th and 5th, on th­ese pages in the coming weeks. See cam­den­crawl­dublin.com
