With The Great Escape Festival just around the corner, NAO, Dream Wife and Trudy And The Romance join the already extensive line-up.

The full line-up and schedule has been revealed, so we’ve decided to pick our 3 new favourites who’ll be joining the line-up for The Great Escape Festival this year.

UK RnB sensation NAO will headline the YouTube Presents Stage on 18th May down on the beach, showing Brighton the biggest “party on the pebbles” it’s ever seen. Currently working on new music since her latest single ‘Nostalgia’ last year, NAO will no doubt mesmerise crowds with her own self-styled “wonky funk”, a glorious fusion of R&B, soul-tinged funk and contemporary pop beats.

“Very excited to be back at TGE 3 years after playing the tiny Komedia Studio Bar in 2015.” explains NAO. “It feels great to return as a headliner on such a talented line up.

Also on the line-up are Brighton ex-students Dream Wife, who’ll be returning to their hometown to send crowds into a frenzy with their powerful high energy punk and raucous attitude that only a band of three gals can bring. Alongside them will be Liverpool-based Trudy And The Romance, who’ll be returning to the festival with a new album in the works.
