25 CUTTING EDGE ARTISTS AND SPECIAL GUESTS * 4 VENUES * FREE PROGRAMME AND DOWNLOAD ALBUM * ONE ALL-ACCESS TICKET * CAMDEN TOWN
Alongside this April's Camden Crawl, the organisers have teamed up with Red Bull Bedroom Jam to launch the first ever Red Bull Bedroom Jam X-Crawl in 2009. The alcohol-free version of the festival is set to make its debut on Saturday 25th April with tickets exclusively available to 14 - 18 year olds unable to attend the main event due to licensing restrictions.
The Red Bull Bedroom Jam X-Crawl will retain much of the integrity of its parent, featuring 25 of the best up & coming artists from around the country alongside amazing DJs and special guests. Upon arrival each ticket holder will receive a free programme and compilation download album featuring acts appearing at the festival and a wristband for unlimited access to the event's participating venues. The venues, curated by Red Bull Bedroom Jam, Artrocker and Visible Noise will include the Underworld, Camden Rock, Hobgoblin and the stunning St. Michael's Church.
The partnership with Red Bull Bedroom Jam follows the phenomenal success of their all ages stage at last year's Crawl. Tickets for the Red Bull Bedroom Jam X-Crawl are now on sale online and will be available to buy from this Saturday at walk up ticket outlets at KOKO's box office, Rough Trade and Pure Groove record shops. Entrance to the event will be strictly limited to those aged 14 - 18 (ID required). Visit www.redbullbedroomjamxcrawl.com for up to date info about the event.

ARTROCKER STAGE @ Camden Rock
Artrocker Magazine has been a supporter of new underground bands since its first issue in 2005. Now running for over six and a half years, The Artrocker Club has consistently promoted early gigs by some of the most important bands within the 'artrock' scene...from international acts such as Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Interpol to the likes of the home grown Maximo Park and Futureheads. In addition to the annual Artrocker Festival in January, the magazine supports various other new music events such as Underage and Offset festivals. Since 2007 Artrocker has run its own all ages events and, as a long-time collaborator with Camden Crawl, is the perfect host for the debut Red Bull Bedroom Jam X-Crawl event.
RED BULL BEDROOM JAM @ St. Michael's Church
Red Bull Bedroom Jam will host a very special stage at St. Michael's Church as the venue makes it's debut on the Crawl circuit. The Grade Two listed building in the heart of Camden Town will feature a line up as impressive as it's architecture, with a selection of bands hand-picked to headline what promises to be an unforgettable gig.
RBBJ UPLOAD @ Hobgoblin
The Red Bull Bedroom Jam X-Crawl will be home to some of the finest new acts in the country and quite possibly your good self! For your chance to play at our very own RBBJ Upload Stage, do exactly what it says on the tin...upload your video onto www.redbullbedroomjam.com, the most popular artists will also get the Red Bull Bedroom Jam crew round their gaff to film and broadcast a special live stream, which will be watched by the world and will include behind-the-scenes interviews and chats with established artists too.
VISIBLE NOISE @ Underworld
Responsible for the success of Lostprophets, Bring Me the Horizon, Bullet for My Valentine and many up and coming young artists, Visible Noise has been involved with all ages shows for more than 8 years. In recent times, their own seminal event Subverse witnessed bands such as Funeral For A Friend and Gallows play intimate clubs in front of rabidly enthusiastic young audiences. The label is an honoured partner to have involved with the inaugural X-Crawl especially for their support of the younger end of the fan spectrum getting to see new talent at a very exciting stage.
