150 artists have been added to the bill
More than 150 artists have been added to the line-up of this year’s The Great Escape, which takes place between May 14 and 16 in Brighton.
Big-name additions include The Cribs (pictured) and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes.
The urban festival, which takes place in a number of venues in the coastal city, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with a line-up of more than 400 new and established acts.
Grime MCs Skepta (pictured) and JME will play one of the special 10th birthday shows at Brighton Dome on the Saturday night (May 16), following already-announced shows at the festival’s flagship venue from Kate Tempest (May 14) and Alabama Shakes (May 15).
Festival Director Kat Morris said: “The Great Escape is extremely proud to champion emerging talent and creativity across the entire music industry. For the past decade, TGE has given upcoming artists the opportunity to perform for 18,000 passionate fans each year who are all hugely supportive of new music. To mark this very special 10th anniversary, we are excited to be bringing back some very special guests who have all performed iconic and memorable shows in previous years to play alongside 400 of 2015’s hottest emerging artists from across the world.”
