Great Escape Line-Up 2010

At last, the listed times and venues for this year's Great Escape festival are up! For those who may not have heard of it, the Great Escape is sort of a three day showcase and general gig hybrid: it lets new bands strut their stuff under the salacious gaze of scouting record labels while recently signed acts and the odd veteran play shows too.

This year's headliners are apparently Groove Armada, although more importantly Broken Social Scene will be playing The Corn Exchange on Saturday May 15th. BE THERE. Tickets are still available, although the three-day pass has now gone up from £45 to £55. You can snap up some individual day tickets instead, in case you've only got your eye on a few acts (range from £22.50 to £30). It's a total bargain, especially considering the next time most of these bands return to Brighton's fair shores their ticket prices will be nearing £12 - 15 apiece. Ouch.

Other highlights:

Sons of Noel & Adrian

Darwin Deez

These New Puritans

The Leisure Society

Best Coast

For A Minor Reflection (mostly because they're really nice guys)
