Try as you might to deny it, but festival season is certainly upon us. Lineups have already started to roll in, and today another big one was unveiled.

Featuring three days of up-and-coming bands from all over the world, The Great Escape festival will be taking over Brighton, England, for the eleventh year in a row from May 19–21, 2016. Oh Wonder, Shura, and Mura Masa have been announced as headliners, with standouts such as Dilly Dally, Mystery Jets, and Owen Rabbit also included in the first wave of billing. Many more artists will be announced in the coming months.
