Virtual Festivals - 22 January 2014

Urban festival The Great Escape returns for its 9th year in 2014, with more than 400 artists performing over three days in 35 of the best venues across the coastal city of Brighton, Sussex.

'Milkshake' singer Kelis will top the line-up, playing a one-off show at Brighton Dome on Saturday 10 May with support from Rudimental collaborator Ella Eyre. This show will require a £7 'top-up' supplement ticket on top of the weekend ticket to guarantee entry, otherwise single tickets are available for the show priced at £15.

Mysterious groove-hop duo Jungle, singer-songwriter Chloe Howl, dirty rock duo Royal Blood and Liverpudlian quartet Circa Waves have all been newly announced for the festival, which takes place across Brighton from 8-10 May 2014.

Charli XCX, Courtney Barnett, Fat White Family, Dune Rats, Traams, Lonely The Brave, Flux Pavilion, Amber Run, Baby In Vain and Fyfe have also been confirmed for The Great Escape 2014.

Many more acts are expected to be announced over the next couple of months, including two more headline acts to play the Brighton Dome.

Great Escape Festival Director, Kat Morris said: "This will be our 9th festival, and it really feels like the event has become stronger year on year. The Great Escape prides itself on showcasing the very best upcoming talent and we aim to produce a line-up which shows a true cross section of emerging artists, locally and internationally, and offer hundreds of incredible gigs, accessible to festival-goers with just one wristband. We’re really excited by how this years’ line-up is shaping up."

Early bird Great Escape tickets are available now, priced at £45 plus a £4.50 booking fee for access to all venues (except The Dome) across the city.
