Ibibio Sound Machine among 130 new acts for The Great Escape

Ibibio Sound Machine among 130 new acts for The Great Escape

Andrew Kemp | Latest News

Brighton festival The Great Escape will be graced by an additional 130 acts between Thursday 18th and Saturday 20th May, with the fantastic Ibibio Sound Machine, Abra Cadabra, Ásgeir, Childhood, Douglas Dare, Raye and The Amazons among the newly declared performers. Joining a lineup that already took pride in presenting some of the best new talent in the UK’s live music scene, the new lists will add an extra layer of intrigue to the multi-venue festival.

Also entering the fray is folk singer-songwriter Jane Weaver, jangly psychedelia from Mystic Braves, urban punk from Nova Twins and the soulful pop of Zak Abel. Further appearances from The Districts, Superfood, Yxng Bane and more are also looking like early highlights, and will help TGE continue a fine vein of form that has seen the festival’s reputation grow each year since starting over ten years ago.
