Brighton mega-festival and industry convention, The Great Escape, has just added a whole new round of artists to the 2016 bill because evidently 300 musicians on the first announcement signified that they were only getting started. The new announcement includes exciting artists including Thomas Cohen, Barns Courtney, SG Lewis and Carnival Youth, while Australian acts like Julia Jacklin, Gang of Youths, City Calm Down, Vallis Alps and Kim Churchill are also now Brighton-bound.
They all join an impressive roster of musicians set to be discovered, as The Great Escape boasts one of the most popular platforms for emerging artists to not only play on the international stage, but have some influential industry eyes turn towards them. Already announced to play this year’s Great Escape festival are the likes of Stormzy, Oh Wonder, Mura Masa, Aldous Harding and Band of Skulls – check out the new artist additions over here!
