Great Escape Announces Full Festival Schedule
It is almost time for the Great Escape Festival, when thousands of music lovers embark on a weekend of discovery, and getting drunk on the beach. With well over 500+ acts playing, how do you decide who to see? The festival announced this week it's full schedule, with stage splits plus adding forty more new acts to the line up!
The festival is pretty much on our door step now, with only a few weeks to go, but in true Great Escape style, they like to keep you on your toes. Rory Bett, MAMA CEO said: “In usual TGE style, we keep adding the heat and energy right up to the festival, it’s very exciting to partner with YouTube to create such a stellar show in our very own new Beach venue.”
UK RnB sensation NAO will headline the YouTube Presents Stage on 18th May down on The Beach, providing Brighton with the biggest party of the weekend. NAO said: “Very excited to be back at TGE 3 years after playing the tiny Komedia Studio Bar in 2015, it feels great to return as a headliner on such a talented line up.”
Making a return from last year, and wanting more we have Dream Wife and rapper Paigey Cakey coming back to the festival. After their sets last year, it is certainly going to go off.
The full festival schedule is now live and on the The Great Escape App, so new music fans can make sure they don’t miss their ‘ones to watch’. However we are going to put this out there, because no-one has said it yet! Milk Teeth are playing upstairs at Patterns on the Saturday. For those of you who can take that in and understand that, you know exactly what it means and we shall see you in the pit!
