Since its launch in 1995, Camden Crawl has been known all over the UK as a showcase for la crème de la crème of the UK music talents. Strategically set to happen at the beginning of Spring, it marks the start of the festival season, and this year its line-up is just as mouthwatering as what (I suppose) the royal wedding cake will be like.

Curated by some of the most forward-thinking British record labels and music promoters - from Rough Trade Shops that is going to take over Camden Town with pop-up vinyl stores hosting intimate performances from some of the hottest bands playing the Crawl, to Moshi Moshi, 1234, Club Fandango, Artrocker and, just to name a few - the whole line-up is simply to die for...

From new-wavers Fiction, Django Django and Wild Palms, to dubstep wonderkid Becoming Real, punk rockers in soy sauce Bo Ningen and Dan Devine’s Flats, there lists of my personal recommendations would be endless.

Well, allow me some more. After listening to folk songstress Sarabeth Tucek’s new album for so long I won’t miss her live performance for anything in the world. Plus, grrrls power folk-with-a-twist Lulu and the Lampshades and electro-experimental royal couple Rainbow Arabia are at the top of my ‘to-see’ list.

And depending on the Gaymers percentage in my blood, you might even find me at Razorlight’s performance...
