Primal Scream to headline Great Escape

Over the past three and a half decades, Primal Scream have embraced everything from psychedelic pop to degenerate rock’n’roll, euphoric rave to industrial gloom and captured the mood of the nation several times over. They have made records with George Clinton and Kate Moss, invited Mani of the Stone Roses and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine into the fold &  throughout it all, they have always sounded like Primal Scream. And they have always made great music.  Musical disrupters in every sense, the band are part of Britain’s cultural heritage. 30 years since the release of the revolutionary Screamadelica and 11 studio albums later, their songs still resonate with everyone from every generation to have ever found themselves on a dancefloor.

Also announced additions to the 2023 line-up include:

SYMPHONIC IBIZA – (SUNDAY HEADLINER) Features some of the most famous Ibiza club anthems from the last 30 years presented in a new and totally unexpected way. Created by DJ and Producer Andy Joyce, (Pacha, Amnesia, Eden, Café Mambo) and accomplished composer and musical director Steve Etherington, Symphonic Ibiza fuses the best Ibiza dance anthems with a DJ, vocalists and a thrilling live Orchestra creating an incredible night of euphoric dancing, banging tunes and stunning high tempo performances.

HENGE – Winners of the Best Live Act at the Independent Festival Awards. Their music escapes definition but occupies a space between rave and prog rock that nobody knew existed. It is energetic, subversive and invigoratingly playful, jovially going ‘where no one has gone before’.

THE CUBAN BROTHERS – Miguel and his suspect sidekicks are renowned the world over for their party starting skills, risqué sketches, B Boy moves & funk-fuelled music. 

ELVANA – Elvis fronted Nirvana – From the bowels of Disgraceland, Rock & Roll icons of the afterlife are raised from the dead! Rock & Roll meets Grunge as Elvis fronts Nirvana and gives the band the front man it’s been missing since ’94.

Hip Hop Karaoke, The Sanctuary Well Being Area, The Zen Den, Vintage Fairground, Victorian Sports Day, Wood Fired Hot Tubs, Captain Inkus Tattoo Parlour, Under The Canopy Cornwall Adventure Club, Madame Wong’s House of Wrong, The Secret Gin Garden & so much more to be announced.
