Not satisfied with music festivals which require you to roll around in the mud? Well, how about crawling through six musical venues to hear 26 bands located within arms' reach of a pint? Sounds tempting?

This year the Intercity Crawl is linking up six pubs and one wristband ticket, to give us the bands who are up and coming, over the top and way up there.

For the first time the crawl will also reach out to Glasgow and Manchester. No - not in one night. Each will have their own line-up, and the following artists will play at all: Dub Pistols, Groop Dogdrill, Hardknox, The High Fidelity, The Lo Fidelity Allstars, Monk & Canatella, Overseer, Silver Sun, Snow Patrol, Tanya Donelly, Topper, Ultrasound, Warm Jets, Velocette and Vitro. Plus there is a strong rumour that the special guests at the London leg of the crawl are Echo And The Bunnymen.
