The Great Escape has added a bunch more bands to its 2018 edition, with Swimming Girls, Rina Sawayama, ALMA, and The Rhythm Method all confirmed.

Ten Fé, Art School Girlfriend, BC Camplight, Högni, Che Lingo, Kojey Radical, Ecca Vandal, Pip Blom, Self Esteem (aka Slow Club's Rebecca Taylor), Puppy, Ross From Friends, Husky Loops, Janice, and many more are joining the bill, which already features the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Poppy Ajudha, Pale Waves, and Grace Carter.

"We’ve been inundated with artists wanting to showcase, more than ever before, the bar has been raised and as a result we’ve curated a line up of artists who will no doubt set the music agenda for the rest of the year," says festival booker Adam Ryan. "This year’s festival is going to be the best Brighton has ever seen; with our brand-new beach venue and even more artists to announce in the coming weeks, it’s set to be the biggest year yet."

The Line Of Best Fit will return to the festival for an eighth consecutive year with full details on our stage line-up to follow over the next few weeks. (Be excited).
