The Great Escape adds another huge number of further artists to play at this year’s Brighton festival featuring some of the best emerging names in music, including The Murder Capital, JGrrey, Hak Baker, Sophie May, Mae Stephens, L Devine and many more.
The Great Escape, the festival for new music, will be kicking off the 2023 festival season, playing host to more than 450 up-and-coming artists and hotly tipped talent across 35+ walkable venues, alongside the music industry-led TGE conference, from 10-13 May 2023 in Brighton, England. Tickets for The Great Escape festival start from £40 for a day ticket, £105 for the weekend and are on sale here.
Joining the already stellar line-up of acts from across the globe are London indie-rock duo Sorry, riding on the immense success of their Top 20 UK Indie charting sophomore album Anywhere but Here, Irish post-punk band The Murder Capital, self-proclaimed G-Folk musician Hak Baker, TikTok sensation Mae Stephens and alt-pop star L Devine.
Also joining the line-up are The Maccabees’ Felix and Hugo White’s new project 86TVs, LA-based singer-songwriter Deb Never who has collaborations with slowthai, Brockhampton and Lava La Rue already under her belt, delicate and intricate melodist Maddie Zahm, jagged punk spirited PVA and one of Scotland’s biggest breakout stars of 2022, Dylan John Thomas.
Thriving through lockdown on TikTok, Sophie May broke onto the scene with her melodic folk pop, now joining The Great Escape line-up as one of 2023 hottest new artists. Nix Northwest will bring his mellifluous brand of jazz-inspired hip-hop as Fat Dog will undoubtedly entertain music fans with their upbeat electronic punk. RØRY will showcase her honest pop-punk that’s seen her boom on social media, musician and poet Heartworms is set to showcase their entrancing avant-garde post-punk, whilst duo Dolores Forever share dreamy indie-pop tunes, set to pair beautifully with the coastal sun. Additions continue with R&B rising star JGrrey, fierce Australian five-piece CIVIC, psychedelic noise-punk rockers The Gluts and saxophone-drum combo act O.
