The Great Escape has added 100 more names to its 2013 line up, with Billy Bragg, Iggy Azealia, The Stypes set to take part.
Held in Brighton, The Great Escape is one of the biggest music showcase events in Europe. Part vital outlet for breaking talent and part booze up by the sea, the festival will find the music industry flocking towards the South coast.
A number of acts have already confirmed their involvement, with How To Dress Well, Drenge, Mac DeMarco, Indians and more taking part. This morning (March 5th) organisers named the next batch of announcements, with 100 additional artists set to take part.
Billy Bragg is set to play the Brighton Dome, a show which will act as a preview for his new album. Clearly excited, the Bard of Barking commented recently: “With my new band and new sounding record, I feel as excited now as I did when my first album 'Life's A Riot with Spy vs Spy' came out all those years ago, so it's brilliant to be invited to play at The Great Escape alongside such a great roster of new acts. I'm really looking forward to coming back to the Brighton Dome too - I've always had such a brilliant time there."
Elsewhere, Irish rhythm 'n' blues prodigies The Strypes are set to play live, with hip hop newcomer Iggy Azealia also planning to perform live. Toddla T will bring his show to the South coast, with other new additions including Mausi, Mazes and beloved zombie rock psychopaths 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster.
