THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 25

As we excitedly lead up to the UK’s closest cousin of America’s famous SxSW Festival, Brighton’s GREAT ESCAPE FESTIVAL, with it’s own mammoth jaunt in showcasing new music, we thought we would return to it here on The Recommender.

THE GREAT ESCAPE FESTIVAL – PART TWO

We first visited the line up at this years festival when we put together Part One (find it here).  As we roll closer to the event the listings have swelled up and now there are so many great additions that we simply must usher your attention towards this fresh batch.

Allow The Recommender to kindly be your best previewer of this amazing festival…



CHEW LIPS (*) –       SOLO (ysi)

DATAROCK –       FA FA FA (ysi)

FANFARLO –       LUNA (ysi)

THE HUNDRED IN THE HANDS (*) –        DRESSED IN DRESDEN (ysi)

MARINA & THE DIAMONDS (*)-       THE SHAMPAIN SLEEPER (ysi)

NOAH & THE WHALE –       5 YEARS TIME (ysi)

PATRICK WOLF –        THE MAGIC POSITION (ysi)

WE HAVE BAND (*) –       OH! (ysi)

THE XX –       VCR (ysi)

You can locate any previous posts that we might have done on these bands in the starred links (*) alongside each act, so click them to find more information, interviews and free mp3’s etc.  Fanfarlo are yet to be posted about, so we will be returning to their brilliance in a later post.

At this rate we will probably have to do a ‘Part 3’ about The Great Escape if they continue to add such outstanding acts. We hope this helps you decide who to pick out from the masses of bands on show. At least our previews allow you to actually listen to the bands first. Can’t see that happening with any printed media now can we? The Recommender wins we thinks.

    Great site you’ve got.

    It’s nice to see someone as enthusiastic about Marina & The Diamonds as I am. I’m so jealous you got an interview.

    Yeah, she is awesome and we pray that she breaks through in the same manner that La Roux and Little Boots has this year.
