The Great Escape Festival 2009 lineup announced
Brighton's answer to London's Camden Crawl, The Great Escape, has revealed its full line-up!
The three-day festival which will showcase more than 300 local and international bands across 34 venues in the seaside surroundings of Brighton town, will run from May 14th to 16th.
From day one, The Great Escape's mission has been to tip your ears on the best of new music, and three years on, they perpetuate telling from a line-up, including Ben Kweller, British Sea Power, Esser, Let's Wrestle, Little Boots, Metronomy, Ipso Facto, Cage The Elephant, Lightspeed Champion and Kasabian. Not so new, that's true, but then, here's a random selection of more anonymous acts: Dan Black, Emily Baker, James Yuill, Everything Everything and Mika Miko....
The Great Escape will also host discussions, with panelists including Radiohead's Colin Greenwood, musician poet Simon Armitage, journalists Paul Morley and Alex Petridis (who, in passing, shares a strong resemblance with Mark E. Smith, if you trust The Great Escape's website!), author Jon Savage, and other prominent practitioners in the muso world.
Three-day early bird tickets are on sale now, at the cost £39.50, so chop-chop!
