The Great Escape today announces 100 new artists set to play at this year’s festival in Brighton, featuring a monumental and dynamic selection of some of the most promising new acts from across the globe and a breadth of genres including pop, electronic, punk, R&B, folk, rap and soul. Welcoming some of the most exciting new acts to Brighton this May, the latest line-up additions feature sibling hyper-pop duo Frost Children, buzzy American indie-sleaze act The Dare, NYC electronic trio Fcukers, finger-picking blues and roots guitarist Muireann Bradley, Korean post-rockers Jambinai, Melbourne indie-pop trio Tamara & The Dreams and many more.
In addition, The Great Escape has also revealed details of 2024’s first TGE Presents show, in partnership with Ticketmaster New Music. The free entry show will take place on 22 February and is the first in a series of monthly gigs set to be held at London’s Old Blue Last in the lead up to the festival. London art-rock six-piece Flat Party will headline the event, with support from gritty punk-tinted five-piece Saloon Dion and gothic shoegaze quintet Velvetine.
Alongside the festival, The Great Escape also hosts the UK’s leading music business conference, which is undergoing a transformation this year as a brand new network of music industry collaborators coming on board to shape its programming with the very best in cutting-edge knowledge and expert speakers.
