The Great Escape announces first wave of acts

Dilly Dally, Tigercub, Mystery Jets and Tuff Love will all feature at the Brighton festival on 19 – 21 May

Over 450 artists will be gracing over thirty Brighton venues at the 2016 edition of The Great Escape next May.

As always, the festival’s focus will fall firmly on new music.

Dilly Dally will unleash a crushing live show as part of their tour in support of their caustic 90s-indebted debut LP, Sore; Brighton-based Tigercub will perform a hometown show as part of the festivities, and Tuff Love’s heartfelt lo-fi will also make an appearance. Amongst the best of the rest include Mystery Jets, Shura, Strange Bones and Foxtrott.
