The Great Escape adds over 100 new artists to line-up

UK: The Great Escape has revealed another 100+ artists who will be joining its line-up from May 19 – 21, where over 450 performers will transform the seaside town of Brighton into a bastion of undiscovered talent and live music.

New artists revealed to perform live include Barns Courtney, Beasts, Man of Moon, Loyle Carner, Thomas Cohen, SG Lewis, Izzy Bizu, and MMOTHS. MMOTHS said: “I am very excited to be playing TGE, looking forward to presenting the new live show”.

Continuing the festivals’ ethos of discovery, ‘The Late Escape’ will put a focus on the electronic and dance world alongside legendary record label Ninja Tune, who are bringing a line-up of artists including Throwing Shade, Max Graef & Glenn Astro, Leatherette. This night will be open to festivalgoers subject to capacity; a small allocation of tickets will also be sold separately to guarantee entry.

Event Manager Kevin Moore said: “It’s wonderful to be able to announce another 100 artists who will be taking part in The Great Escape 2016. We wanted to make sure this year’s line-up was as exciting and as diverse as ever, championing emerging artists from as many genres as possible and I really do feel we’ve got something for every type of new music fan, no matter what you’re into. The addition of our Young Adult wristbands for those aged 16 – 17, along with our Late Escape programming has opened the festival to new attendees and fans. I can’t wait to see everyone in Brighton very soon.”
