The Great Escape have announced details of its DIY programme for this year's convention.

The DIY programmes will take place on Saturday 18th May, and will feature the likes of Billy Bragg and Korda Marshall (founder of Infectious).

"Although I've been working in the industry a long time, I have adopted an increasingly DIY approach since my last record, producing my own merchandise and CDs to be made available via my website and at gigs," says Bragg. I'm currently immersed in the process of applying that principle to releasing a proper album. These are exciting times for musicians and I look forward to sharing some of the insights I've gathered trying to negotiate the record industry, whilst retaining both my rights and my ability to earn a living".

The convention will feature three themes: DIY, Data & Discovery and Music Marketing.
