The ten artists you can't miss at The Great Escape

We're about 48 hours from everything kicking off at the annual music festival and conference held in Brighton, England, The Great Escape (TGE), which we're excited to be bringing you live and direct coverage from for the first time since 2012. Like similar events - SXSW, the recent Canadian Music Week or BigSound closer to home, there are too many bands to try and catch. In the case of TGE, we're talking hundreds. Over the past few weeks, we've been pouring through the list and trying to pick out the bands worth your time. Some we've seen before and can vouch for their excellence, and others we'll be planning to experience for the first time at the festival. And whether you're there or not, these are the artists you should listen to, artists you should see and experience for yourself (presented here in no particular order).
