Intense Troubadour Aiden Grimshaw has been confirmed on the lineup of Serious Music Showcase The Great Escape.

Aido tweeted the news that he would be per­form­ing at "Europe's leading festival for new music" in Brighton this May 10–12.

Some other popstars we like who also take things a bit seriously like Foxes, Niki & The Dove and AlunaGeorge will also be there.

We don't know if many people who watch The X Factor and ask popstars to 'RT' them will be there though so we hope Aidan gets a good turnout.
