Amazon has announced that Kaiser Chiefs will headline Amazon Artist Lounge Live: The Secret Show at this year’s festival in Brighton.
Amazon Artist Lounge Live: The Secret Show is a special one-off event from Kaiser Chiefs on Fri 9 May at The Great Escape 2014, their first Brighton show since 2008. The Secret Show will feature songs from their chart-topping album Education, Education, Education & War and selections from their ten-year back catalogue. If you’ve purchased a festival wristband you could be there. Visit The Great Escape’s Secret Show registration page HERE to sign up and find out more.
The time and venue of the Amazon Artist Lounge Live: The Secret Show is top secret, but fans can keep up-to-date with all the news by following @AmazonMusicUK on Twitter, on Facebook (Amazon Music UK) or by visiting www.amazon.co.uk/TheGreatEscape.
Kaiser Chiefs latest album, Education, Education, Education & War lead by the single “Coming Home” has spent four weeks in the UK Top Ten with two weeks at Number One. The Brit-award winners have recently announced arena shows for 2015, playing London’s The 02 and the First Direct Arena in Leeds in February.
Described by Steve Lamacq as “The Cannes of the Music World”, The Great Escape is the destination for music lovers and new music fans. During the three days, shows will take place in 35 venues across the city, with music from every genre spilling from seafront clubs, tiny pubs and converted churches. With KELIS, CHARLIE XCX and ELLA EYRE just a few of the 400+ artists performing, the event is selling out fast.
In addition to the secret gig, Amazon.co.uk will also partner the Brighthelm venue at this year’s festival. Across the three days, the venue will host up-and-coming new talent including Amazon’s new and emerging for 2014 artist LAURA WELSH, LE1F, LE VASCO, LIZZO, WILD CUB, FRANK HAMLTON, FE, JEREMY NEALE, WE WERE EVERGREEN, JESS GLYNNE, ARC IRIS, SIVU, HANNAH GEORGAS, SALT ASHES, GEORGE BARNETT, and REBEKA.
