The Magic Gang
Brighton showcase welcomes countless new names...

The Magic Gang, Soccer Mommy and many more have been added to the line up of The Great Escape.

The Brighton showcase seems to get bigger and bigger with every passing year, and 2018 should provide a bumper crop of new music.

Amid a host of new additions south coast heroes The Magic Gang stand out, with their wonderful debut album cracking the charts at number 12 on its release.

Elsewhere, American songwriter Soccer Mommy will hit The Great Escape, with other additions including Izzie Gibbs, Demob Happy, Snail Mail and more.

Righteous underground punk types IDLES will storm the Brighton event, and offered their own inimitable comment:

"TANANEE TANANEE TANANEE TANANINGTING BOOYEH... with a little bit of luck you'll be at The Great Escape festival to taste the rainbow with us morons. DGG"

Tickets are on sale now.

The Great Escape runs between May 17th - 19th.
