Update: Everything Everything added as Great Escape 2013 headliner, alongside Billy Bragg and Bastille

Take a stroll down to the seaside and grab some Harry Ramsden’s, go on, treat yourself. The weather has been off its rocker in the first few months of the year, and well, it’s just time to chill out and have some you time next to the sea.

Oh, you don’t fancy relaxing? Well, hey, why not take in the Brighton seascape and the hottest new bands in the world too? That tickles your fancy, yeah? I thought so.

The line-up so far has been nothing short of phenomenal and to top it off, boy, have those fellas down at this year’s Great Escape got a treat for you. Fresh off the back of the release of ‘Arc’ (review here), Everything Everything are riding higher than Jonathan Higgs’ vocals and as a result of that will be headlining a Dome show Thursday night during the festival, alongside Billy Bragg and the continually omnipresent it seems Bastille, being supported by the much-fancied Kodaline. [Editor’s note: trust me, they’re worth fancying.]

For those unfamiliar with the concept of The Great Escape, here’s a whirlwind tour that should spell it out: imagine 30 venues dotted around the city, during the 16th to the 189th of May, with some of the bars leading out onto the seaside, while others are slap-bang on the eponymous Brighton Pier. Then throughout the day, rain or shine band after band playing in venues differing in size, charm and capacity.

For someone who has witnessed it, I can concur that it is a truly great site. The swathes of denim clad punters rushing from bar to bar to catch the ‘next big thing’ or a band with a funny name. Take your pick really, there’s a bit of everything. From Welsh pop-punkers the Blackout to Camden alt-indie quartet Tribes, there’s something for even the fussiest of indie tastesetters.

The Bastille Dome show may be long sold out, but 3-day-tickets and day tickets can all still be bought here.
