The Great Escape has unveiled more than 150 new names.

The Brighton based new music extravaganza will return this Spring, showcasing breaking talent from around the globe. As ever, it’s a deeply eclectic bill, with organisers sharing a hefty batch of fresh names this morning (March 7th).

Irish group The Murder Capital recently released their second album ‘Gigi’s Recovery’, playing a string of intense, emphatic UK shows alongside. Set to hit The Great Escape, their set will surely be one of the festival’s highlights.

Elsewhere, you can check out soulful aesthete JGrrey, Mae Stephens, Scottish riser L Devine, and genial wordsmith Hak Baker.

The Great Escape will also welcome Deb Never, post-punk outfit PVA, Maddie Zahm, and 86TVs – the new project from The Maccabees’ Felix and Hugo White.

The new announce features a stellar list of names, ranging from Clash favourite Louis Culture to VC Pines via Rarelyalways, Arny Margret, Gen & The Degenerates, Pool Kids, and much, more more.

Check out the line-up in full online.

Tickets are on sale now.

The Great Escape runs between May 10th – 13th.
