Allah-Las, Phosphorescent for Uncut stage at this year's Great Escape

Brighton's Great Escape have announced its first wave of acts for this year's festival, among them the Allah-ahs and Phosphorescent, who will be appearing on Uncut’s stage.

Other acts announced include Unknown Mortal Orchestra, King Krule, Eddi Front and Tom Odell. A full list of this round of acts is bellow, but more will follow. We will announce more acts appearing on our stage in the April issue.

“The core aim of TGE is to champion new music,” said Festival Director Kat Morris. “And it’s great to be in a position where we can give festival goers an exciting cross-section of new artists to engage with.”

Running alongside the festival will be the Great North conference, featuring a mixture of speakers and networking events. Speakers include Alan Davy, who will announce the artist-centric The Music Industry Talent Development Fund, and a panel of managers moderated by Convention Programmer Chris Cooke.

Early bird tickets for the concert and conference are £45 and £145 respectively and can be found on the Great Escape website.
