With only six weeks to go until the festival, The Great Escape has added a further hundred artists to the line-up.
They include, Bristolian five-piece IDLES who will ensure wall-to-wall commotion with their raucous punk-rock.
Also joining the line-up are Minneapolis’s NOW NOW, LA teen garage rockers The Regrettes, who combine a ferocious punk sound with irresistible hooks, and Naomi Scott – aka the Pink Power Ranger from the 2017 Hollywood reboot of the legendary superhero franchise.
Also Brighton-bound are Connie Constance – set to bring her jazz and soul flavours, husky vocals, and emotional intelligence beyond her years, and Edinburgh’s melodic rockers Vistaswhose energetic shows have been causing a clamour.
Insecure Men is made up of schoolmates Saul Ademczewski, formerly of Fat White Family, and Ben Romans-Hopcraft from Childhood. The notorious duo have created a beautiful and distinctive pop sound on a range of twisted subjects, and look set to intrigue and delight in equal measure.
Local talent at this year’s festival includes Brighton’s Demob Happy and The Magic Gang, while Grime’s newest sensation Izzie Gibbs is getting ready to step up to the next level with his witty wordplay and limitless energy, and Australian multi-instrumentalist G-Fliphas won a host of fans with her smooth vocals and juicy riffs.
Elsewhere, gravel-voiced Snail Mail will transport festival go-ers down Route 66, and Kenyan-born Danish rapper K-Phax will grace the festival with “happy rap”.
The Great Escape tajes place between the 17th-19th May at over 60 venues, with 500+ artists and a brand new festival site on Brighton Beach. Over 3 days this May with over 3,500 industry delegates and 16,000 attendees.
