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 festivalgoers with just one wristband. We’re really excited by how this year’s line-up is shaping up.”

We will be announcing details of who’s playing the Uncut stage soon.
