Yeasayer To Play Uncut Stage At Brighton's Great Escape

Yeasayer are among the first bands booked to play the Uncut stage at this year's Great Escape Festival.

Yeasayer [pictured above], the most expansive, eclectic band on the new Brooklyn scene will be joined by Wild Beasts, a compelling mix of Orange Juice jangle and Billy Mackenzie operatics; and No Age, a thrilling punk update of My Bloody Valentine, who are revolutionising the LA music scene on the Uncut-sponsored stage.

The Great Escape is an annual three-day festival of the best new music in the world, and this year takes place at venues around Brighton between May 15 and 17.
