The first acts for this year's Great Escape festival have been announced.
Metronomy, The Golden Silvers and a host of hotly-tipped acts including The Soft Pack, VV Brown, The Big Pink and Passion Pit are to perform at the three-day event in Brighton.
The new music festival, the UK's answer to Austin's SXSW festival, will see more than 300 artists performing across 34 venues from 14-16 May.
Last year The Ting Tings and Vampire Weekend played at the event.
Other acts confirmed for this year's line-up include Kissy Sell Out, Esser, Future Of The Left, Micachu, Pulled Apart By Horses, The Chapman Family, Johnny Foreigner, Dananakroyd, Yves Klein Blue, John Steel Blues Band and The Joy Formidable.
Tickets for the event, which is now in its fourth year, are on sale now.
In previous years, The Great Escape has helped to break acts such as The Klaxons, The Kooks, Glasvegas, Gossip, Adele, Jack Penate, Gallows, Kate Nash, Sam Sparro and Crystal Castles.
