The Great Escape has unveiled more of this years lineup, as well as its plans for a brand new 2,000 capacity area on Brighton beach.
Yesterday we reported that The Great Escape (TGE) has signed the PRS Foundation’s Keychange pledge to achieve a 50/50 gender balance across their lineup by 2022. Widely considered to be one of the best emerging music festivals in the UK, there is hope that over the coming years, talent featured at TGE will begin to populate the main stages at larger festivals.
The new Brighton beach festival area, which joins a family of 30 other venues, will be home to two new venues which will feature lineups curated by Island Records, AWAL, Dr Martens and other partners.
TGE have added some of the most exciting music acts of 2018 to their bill, with the likes of Superorganism, Tom Grennan, Tom Walker, Erol Alkan, Goat Girl, Let’s Eat Grandma, and Japanese Breakfast all joining the festival in May.
Here are all of the latest additions to the line-up:
