Lewis Capaldi is the first name to be announced for The Great Escape's Spotlight show series next year.
The 'Spotlight' shows take place at Brighton's prestigious Dome venue, and is ticketed seperately to the festival. Last year the festival welcomed MIST and MoStack as their 'Spotlight' performers.
Commenting on his return to Brighton's new music festival, Capaldi says, "Absolutely over the moon to come back and play The Great Escape this year! Had an amazing show last time and hopefully things will be the same this time around!”
So far Brighton's new music showcase will see performances from L Devine, WOOZE, Squid, Millie Turner, Jockstrap, Indoor Pets, Fontaines D.C, Connie Constance, and many more.
