Live review, 14/05 - 16/05, The Great Escape Festival

(We were there in 2009, but thought we'd let you know already when next years is!)

And so armed with Press and Photo Passes, the smallest camera in the world, tasked with attending 18 gigs and meeting 18 bands, Alex was sent to Brighton to review the industry showcase which is The Great Escape Festival.

This is the result!!

Series 3, episode 3 out today!

.....aaaaand here it is at last! Early baths all round for the ADN team this week, as episode 3 arrives, well, 3 days late. A devilish combo of failing technology, real work (fail) and a debauched stag weekend (win) has taken its toll. We're confident that it's been worth the wait though...why not judge for yourselves by hitting that cheeky little play button:

On the show this week...

The ADN team confront their collective hangover, look it in the eye, administer a textbook spinning piledriver to its ass and heroically guide you through another 18 track ADN odyssey. As ever, fresh new tracks abound; try Filthy Dukes, Death Cab For Cutie, Hockey and Major Lazer for starters. Strumathons from Johnny Flynn and Grammatics, tasty beats from Mos Def and The Pharcyde and an infuriatingly catchy offering from (small eared) Esser are but a few of the other treats on offer. Elsewhere, Dan guides you through this week's album of the week from Ben Harper & Relentless7, whilst Alex bashes out yet another gig guide with unparalleled panache.

Are UB40 actually evil? Is there anyone who Mischa Barton isn't shagging? And what is in that f*cking tea cup that Lady Gaga knocks about with? The man with (most of) the answers is, of course, The London Paper's Luke Blackall. Don't even consider missing out on this one. Big!

To the usual ADN listening massive; thanks as ever. To the newbies; hello to you. And to those who still haven't yourself a favour! Until next time pop pickers...
