More acts announced for the Uncut Stage at this year's Great Escape

Five more acts have been confirmed for the Uncut Stage at this year's Great Escape festival.

Lord Huron, Mikal Cronin, Woods [pictured], The Strypes, White Fence will be playing the Uncut Stage - along with the Allah-las and Phosphorescent, who have already been confirmed.

In addition, over 100 new acts have also been added to the Brighton festival including Billy Bragg, Parquet Corts and Mazes. Bragg’s show, held at the Brighton Dome, will be a separate ticket discounted for Great Escape attendees

“With my new band and new sounding record,” said Bragg, “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."

The festival takes place between May 16 and 18. Early Bird tickets cost £45 and are available at http://mamacolive.com/thegreatescape/

The first batch of bands to be announced included Unknown Mortal Orchestra, King Krule and Chvrches.

The 46th (And Last) Playlist Of 2014


Sorry I didn't manage to post a playlist last week; a combination of germs, deadlines and various other professional/seasonal distractions meant that I ran out of time.

Here, though, is our last office list of 2014, with lots of strong new entries. A few highlights...
