Wondering what to do with your mid-May weekend next year? It has been announced today that Brighton's The Great Escape will celebrate their 11th year with a line-up of local and international talented young things that includes Oh Wonder, PUMAROSA and 16-year-old new kid Declan McKenna.

i-D favourites Shura, Mura Masa and Beach Baby will also showcase, while TGE alumni Mystery Jets are apparently due back with their stripped back new album, Curve Of The Earth. Good news for young music fans; the festival's usual age limit of 18 has been reduced to 16+ across certain venues and early bird tickets are on sale now.
