Organisers of London festival Camden Crawl have announced that it has gone into liquidation.

The event, which did not take place last year, made a return this summer after being rebranded as CC14.

This years' event was its 19th anniversary, and took place between June 20 – 21 across 25 venues. Artists who appeared this year included Bad For Lazarus, Alexis Taylor (pictured right), PAWS, Pins, Thumpers, TRAAMS and a host of others.

An email from the event's founder Lisa Paulon issued to Music Week reads: "Pease be aware [that] unfortunately Crawl Promotions Limited T/A Camden Crawl is experiencing financial difficulty. It is with great regret that the Board has decided that there is no option but to place the Company into Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation."

The news has been met with allegations that the festival has not paid the acts who appeared. Indie label Invada Records took to Twitter to raise its concerns:




Jack Cooper from Mazes wrote on Twitter: "So Camden Crawl? Did you really just go into voluntary liquidation without paying us or anyone else?"

According to Music Week, the festival's founder Lisa Paulon has previously complained about Camden Council's "strict licensing rules" and recently said that the event had to be simplified in recent years because of this.
