There will be over 150 acts playing various Dublin City Centre venues over the course of the festival - 3rd to 5th May - and entertainment.ie are happy to be back to curate one of the stages, after playing host in The Mercantile during last year's debut festival.
New additions to the festival will include a cutting edge live comedy showcase, an afternoon fringe programme and a launch event on the eve of the festival.

Tickets, which are exchanged for wristbands, allow unlimited access to all venues, outdoor stages and after show parties and include a free programme guide and album featuring the acts scheduled to perform.
Tickets will be available as single day or weekend passes. Wristbands and programmes announcing the full line ups and timings for the event are obtainable from 5pm – 10pm each day at the ticket exchange points located at Whelans, Wexford Street, Dublin 2 and Film Base in Temple Bar.
With a fair bit homegrown talent already announced earlier this month, it is with great pleasure that we can unveil the International artists joining the line up of amazing Irish acts gracing the Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin stages this year
Meteor Camden Crawl Dublin pops its comedy cherry at The Bankers (Dame Lane) and The Swan (Aungier St) this year with two fantastic shows at each venue commencing 7:00 & 9:00pm on Sunday 5th May. Unlimited entrance to all comedy shows in included upon presentation of Meteor Camden Crawl festival wristband.
Hosted by Bankers Comedy Club, theirs is a top comedy line up showcasing Ireland’s rising stars including Chortle Student Comedy Awards nominee Colm Tyrell, regular Des Bishop support Christiane O’Mahoney and Marcus O’Laoire fresh from the Jim Jeffries comedy tour, with “Mr Comedy Smackdown” himself Chris Kent closing the early set. The 9pm gig turns the volume right up with the outrageous headliner Niamh Marron (finalist Funny Women 2012) supported by the comedy genius of Tom ‘The Bear’ O’Mahoney (Republic of Telly), the flamboyant Al Porter, and the intelligent one, Darren Maher. Both sets are hosted by resident MC Peter O’Byrne.
Danny Dowling (TV3’s Come Dine With Me) brings the late night hit of the Galway Comedy Festival BOOM! Live Comedy For Dead People to The Swan for a one off outing. With dark comedy to match his dark hair, Ronan Grace launches the early show followed by sketch from Giles Brody and Colin Chadwick. Alison Spittle (Republic of Telly) and the storytelling Tommie James lead the way to crescendo in a cornucopia of one liners from Trevor Browne. All is held together by MC Danny Dowling and mixed up with big tunes and good times.
‘Uncurable Laughter’ sweeps over The Swan when the creator of ComedyDoctors.ie, MC Greg Marks presents the late night set. Star of the Love/Hate series and former boxer, Padser Murray, proves why he is one of Ireland’s one’s to watch. Whilst the country’s busiest improviser and Edinburgh record holder, Gary Lynch supports the evening’s closer Tommy Nicholson, godfather of the Irish comedy circuit.
ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN will take to the stage in Dublin for the first time in almost 2 years to exclusively perform at the 2013 May Bank Holiday festival.
