There is just one month to go until The Great Escape kicks off 2014's UK Festival Season...
The final wave of names have been announced for the multi-venue festival (35 venues, to be precise) which takes place beside the season in Brighton from May 8th 'til the 10th. There are now over 400 bands on the bill and amongst today’s 100+ additions are Danish slashed-O lovers MØ (In Photos), as well as LITTLE DRAGON, LE1F. Bernard Butler’s TRANS, DiS favourites WHITE HINTERLAND and ANNIE EVE; as well as those chaps GLASS ANIMALS who played the DiS stage at TGE last year, and are now signed to super-producer Paul Epworth's label.
Kat Morris, Festival Director, said: “We are so excited to complete this year’s line-up. Since its inception 9 years ago, we have always maintained that the foremost objective of the festival is to produce an internationally-reaching programme that is genuinely representative of the full spectrum of emerging talent in music. I think we’ve achieved that. There is so much incredible talent out there, we are honoured to showcase as much of it as we can at The Great Escape. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the festival in May!”
We're still to reveal the DiS line-up. RSVP on Facebook to be the first to find out who's playing on our bill.
