This year’s festival will also feature Lithuanian and Latvian artists and a film programme.

Brighton’s Great Escape festival has revealed a night time programme for this year’s edition of the multi-venue festival.

The inaugural Late Escape will see Ninja Tune and Decked Out both hosting nights at the festival, with a focus on new and emerging talent from the world of dance music. The events will be open to those already attending the festival, with separate tickets also available.

The Great Escape has also announced a partnership that will bring a selection of Lithuanian and Latvian artists to the festival, including Without Letters, Alina Orlova, Carnival Youth and Howling Owl.

This year’s event also sees The Great Escape move into film as it teams up with the Raindance Film Festival to bring screenings of Suede: Night Thoughts, an accompaniment to the band’s recent album, and post-punk film Big Gold Dream: Scottish Post-Punk and Infiltrating the Mainstream.

The fresh announcements bolster an already packed line-up, which includes Stormzy, Craig David, Mumdance, UNiiQU3, Riko Dan, D Double E, Lady Leshurr, AJ Tracey, Jammz and more.

This year’s festival takes place in Brighton from May 19-21 – full information and tickets can be found at The Great Escape website.
