The first 100 acts to perform at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival 2014 have been announced.

Now in its ninth year, The Great Escape opens the UK festival season by showcasing 400 emerging artists. Renowned for being Europe’s leading festival for new music, the three day event will take place in May, with over 18,000 people expected to attend.

Headlining the Saturday night in the Brighton Dome will be Kelis, with fans getting a sneak listen of what to expect from her sixth album. Support for this show will come from BRIT nominated Rudimental collaborator, Ella Eyre.

Other acts who will appear across the city’s 35 venues include pop princess Charli XCX, rock duo Royal Blood, Liverpudlian quartet Circa Waves and the beat-making collective, Jungle.

The festival will once again showcase international talent, with a stage hosted by Music Finland, which Great Escape 2014 is in partnership with.
