Though May will be a time when countless numbers of you will be off to one or both ATPs, let's not forget that there are other festivals going on at the time, including the pretty comprehensive Great Escape, which takes place across many, many venues in Brighton every year. This year's festival takes place from May 13-15, and the first wave of bands have just been confirmed. A good bunch they are. Mostly.
Here they are:
Chase & Status
Broken Social Scene
Marina & The Diamonds
Esben & The Witch
The Ruby Suns
Let us remind/inform you that we also have our own stage this year. For all three days. We will, of course, be informing you of all the updates to the line-up for that just as soon as we have them. You'll be the first to know.
Just so you can get a taste of a couple of the artists, there's a Ruby Suns song and a Slow Club video to occupy your time.
Tickets are priced at a bargain £45 for all three days and can be bought from here. See you there?
