Slaves will headline a ‘Pier Party’ at this year’s Great Escape festival in Brighton, one of 100 new acts that have been added to the bill.

The Slaves ’spotlight’ show, hosted by DIY, will take over the funfair on Brighton Palace Pier, with tokens for the rides included with the ticket.

The Magic Gang, The Parrots, Marika Hackman, Dream Wife, Stefflon Don and Avelino are also amongst the new acts revealed for the renowned urban festival, joining previously announced performers including Rag’N’Bone Man, Cabbage and Ray BLK. “It’s brilliant to be able to get out of the traps in January announcing 100 of the best new bands around joining the line-up for TGE 2017,” said events manager Kevin Moore. “We cannot wait for Slaves to perform at the end of Brighton Palace Pier for what is going to be one of the biggest shows we have ever produced at the festival – it’s going to be one of those legendary ‘were you there’ moments.”

Tickets for Slaves show are priced at £22.50, while saver passes for The Great Escape are £60. The full list of new additions is:
