Foals have been added to the bill for this year’s Great Escape - playing the 600-capacity Concorde 2 on Friday 10th May.

The March cover stars, who released latest album ‘Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1’ last month, are playing as part of the celebrations for Transgressive’s 15th anniversary.

Blaenavon and Boniface will both also play the gig.

Transgressive will also host The Old Market on Thursday 9th May with a lineup to be announced.

“The Great Escape is easily one of the world’s most progressive and exciting showcase platforms,” says Transgressive’s Toby L, “and since Transgressive alwaysendeavours to unearth and support brand new artists that offer something to say, it felt entirely apt to kickstart a year of parties, special releases and other birthday related gimmickry in Brighton at an event we’ve supported since its inception.

“It’s fair to say we wanted to do something pretty big to launch our birthday year, and I guess that’s how / why we’ve landed here… Foals have some incredible history with Concorde 2 and it seemed like an absolute dream to reunite them. We’ll have some new artists from the roster in support on the night, too, plus some friendly faces behind the decks. And we’ll hopefully be well warmed up by then as we are looking forward to staging another event the night before at The Old Market, co-hosted with our friends at Fender… More on that one soon, too.”

Tickets for the Foals gig are on sale from 9am Wednesday 3rd April.
