The Great Escape 2014: first 100 acts revealed

The Great Escape have revealed the first 100 artists confirmed for the 2014 festival.

Among the artists performing at this year's festival are Courtney Barnett [pictured] and Kelis - scroll down for the full line-up.

The festival will run on May 8 - 10 in Brighton across 35 venues. In total, the festival will play host to 400 bands.

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.

A limited number of Early Bird tickets from £45 can be purchased from The Great Escape website here, or in person at Resident records in Brighton. Early Bird delegate passes are also on sale from £145.00, available here.

The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2015

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
