Aussies Abroad: The Temper Trap, Jagwar Ma & DMA’s added to The Great Escape line up

Talk about a triple whammy. With The Great Escape Festival preparing to take over Brighton, England next week, an Aussie trio in The Temper TrapJagwar Ma and DMA’s have just been announced on the already extensive and diverse line up!

The Temper Trap have just wrapped up some successful shows here in Australia, their first headline dates in some time, having been away overseas working on their new album. Their return to Brighton marks their first appearance at The Great Escape since headlining the festival in 2012 – a long time between drinks, for sure. The band performs as part of the exclusive Amazon Front Row Live: The Secret Show event on May 21st.

Festival wristband holders can register for a ticket to The Temper Trap’s show but the tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis due to the severely limited number on offer. Fans are encouraged to sign up by registering their details via The Great Escape’s WEBSITE.

Both Jagwar Ma and DMA’s are set to play the Saturday night closing party of the festival, with the Q Magazine shindig set to host some wicked sets by each Australian artist. The co-headline gig will be held at the Corn Exchange on May 21st, with doors opening at 10:45pm. The show is open to all festival goers with a wristband, but entry is subject to capacity.

The Great Escape runs from May 19th to 21st in Brighton, England. Visit their WEBSITE for more details!
