The Pretenders, Yonaka, The Goa Express For The Great Escape 2023

140 more names confirmed...

Rock royalty The Pretenders, and new comers Yonaka, The Goa Express (and more) are part of an epic new announcement from The Great Escape.

The Brighton event is back, bigger and bolder than ever. With epic sets expected from Maisie Peters and Arlo Parks, organisers have just confirmed a mammoth new update, featuring more than 140 names drawn from all corners of the globe.

Emphasising the sheer span offered by The Great Escape, the new update included iconic rock name The Pretenders. Chrissie Hynde brings the group to Brighton this May, joined on the bill by seismic newcomers Yonaka, the hotly-tipped Goa Express, and Coach Party.

Moonchild Sanelly will appear at The Great Escape this year, while you can also expect sets from Mac Wetha, Jazmin Bean, The Native, Sprints, and Orchards.

Fraser T Smith is set to bring his Future Utopia project to Brighton, with other new additions including Clash favourite Tay Ivar, Freak Slug, and Chinese-Scottish riser LVRA.
