Only six weeks to go until festival season truly kicks in! The Great Escape has added 100 artists to the line-up, and they are soon to announce more acts to join their stages. It is an excellent opportunity for these artists to showcase their work. Over three days in May, you will be able to choose from 500+ artists and have a real live music discovery experience on the Brighton Beach.
Let’s find out more about the acts; we’re introducing some of the greats who you will be able to see over there.
Feel the American dream, Now Now is joining the line-up, the Minneapolis’s duo – a fusion of indie electro-pop will electrify the audience. Since their debut album ‘Threads’ the band released quite a few singles which are infused with acoustic guitar, synths, and catchy beats.
Next up is Nashville’s Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy – who gained praise for her recently released debut album Clean with lo-fi indie-pop bedroom melodies and outspoken lyrics. Speaking of outspoken lyrics let’s mention Zuzu, emerging from Liverpool who released two highly likable and playful songs: ‘What You Want’ and ‘Get Off.‘ Be sure to listen to some of her unreleased material at the festival!
Is anyone actually from Brighton? Yes! One of many local talent highlights is indie pop outlet The Magic Gang who will charm everyone with their newly released self-titled album. While these boys will make you feel the summer vibes in the air, your new favourite band might be playing at a different stage. Get up then and meet Pillow Queens a bit more aggressive, enhanced by fantastic drumming.
Additionally, check out The Night Cafe, melodic and nuanced indie rock and London based Rews. This highly dynamic and energetic duo will bring the charisma and alternative rock to life. Their performance at Glastonbury has already created a buzz in the music scene and enabled them to release their first album. You will want to jump around!
Also, We are not sorry for presenting you with this sonically unique band: Sorry. The band will conquer the scene with raw on the edges production, rich trip-hop like beats, quirky guitar, and vocal harmonies.
