Billy Bragg Among 100 new Artists Added to Great Escape Line-up
Date Posted: 05/03/13
Billy Bragg is among a list of 100 new acts being added to the line-up for this year's Great Escape festival in Brighton, it has been revealed.
The legendary musician and political activist will perform at the Brighton Dome, which this year is hosting a number of shows in addition to the main Great Escape programme.
"It's brilliant to be invited to play at the Great Escape alongside such a great roster of new acts," Bragg commented. "I'm really looking forward to coming back to the Brighton Dome too - I've always had such a brilliant time there."
Other acts to be added to the line-up include The Strypes, Jagwar Ma, Temples, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Iggy Azalea and Parquet Courts.
Taking place from May 16th to 18th, the Great Escape is an excellent reason to book Brighton hotels this spring, with a number of top bands and artists set to appear.
In addition to the newly announced acts, others performing at this year's festival include Unknown Mortal Orchestra, King Krule, Title Fight and Eddi Front.
