Gold Class, Middle Kids & Tigertown amongst first 50 artists announced for The Great Escape!

The Great Escape returns to Brighton in the UK next year, taking over the British seaside from May 18th – 20th. Lauded as the festival for unearthing some of music’s most exciting talent from around the globe, The Great Escape will be celebrating its twelfth year with some of the best established and emerging artists.

Amongst the first fifty acts announced for The Great Escape included our own Gold ClassTigertown and Middle Kids, while the first Spotlight Show of TGE will be led by Brighton local, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man.

Elsewhere on the line up are the likes of ALMA from Finland, Manchester’s Cabbage (one of our picks as a break out artist of 2017) and 19 year old producer/vocalist Adam Straker from London.

The three-day festival once again will be offering teens (16-17 year olds) the option to get involved as well, with Young Adult tickets returning off the back of a successful introduction this year. Punters will be able to pay off their three-day tickets via a deposit scheme too, making things a little more accessible, no doubt.
