The latest list of additions to The Great Escape lineup has been released, and it’s a curious mixture of new and established.

Future stars including Liv Dawson and Pixx are joined by Blood Red Shoes and Shout Out Louds in an offering of variety for the tastemaking festival.

Singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin, now an independent, is also confirmed alongside Rat Boy, NME Awards Tour member Rory Wynne and 4AD’s Aldous Harding.

The host city of Brighton is represented by Tigercub and Fickle Friends.

Today’s announcement of 150 new artists follows previous major waves, including the 132 added earlier this month.

And while the showcase names for 2017 – including Rag’n’Bone Man and Slaves – have been revealed previously, there’s still plenty of hot bands on the latest list.

Names familiar to followers of new music include Ten Fé, who’ve recently released their debut album, INHEAVEN and Anteros.

White Kite, Happy Accidents, Rejjie Snow and Girl Ray are other highlights.

Shout Out Louds, Blood Red Shoes and Gabrielle Aplin will be the most surprising additions, however, in light of the festival’s format.

The festival is an annual showcase of bands that could break big, and takes place across Brighton’s venues from 18-20 May.

General tickets for The Great Escape are on sale now, priced at just £60, offering access – albeit non-priority – to venues.

Delegate passes, which allow priority access – essentially a queue jump – plus access to special convention events, cost significantly more at £195.

Day tickets are also on sale, costing £54 for Friday and Saturday to just £35 for Thursday or Friday alone.

Some performances – those of Slaves and Rag’n’Bone Man – are ticketed separately and have long sold-out.
