Everything Everything and Klaxons are among a list of 58 new artists added to The Great Escape festival in Brighton.

Everything Everything will perform a one-off show at the Brighton Dome during the multi-venue festival in May, while Klaxons will return to showcase material from their forthcoming third album. Joining them on the line-up will be Tribes, Deap Vally, Big Deal, Girls Names and RDGLDGRN among many others.

Bastille, Parquet Courts, Wolf Alice, Swim Deep, The Strypes, Chvrches, AlunaGeorge and DIIV will also play live in the coastal city between May 16 and 18. Everything Everything are one of a handful of acts playing live at Brighton venue The Dome, which non-wristband holding fans will be able to attend on a one-off basis.

Speaking about the line-up, The Great Escape's Kat Morris says: "The core aim of TGE is to champion new music, and it’s great to be in a position where we can give festival goers an exciting cross-section of new artists to engage with. In our eighth year we are completely focused on delivering another programme that wholly embodies this ethos, and our initial line-up is full of promise for this year to be one of our best to date."
