Get away at The Great Escape

Brighton, Sussex

The Great Escape brings hundreds of up-and-coming artists to 35 venues over three days in Brighton and Hove.

Often compared to America’s SXSW festival, The Great Escape is a showcase for new artists from across the globe. Take your pick from hundreds of singers, rappers and musicians, and immerse yourself in a sea of new sounds. Pack as many shows into the weekend as you can, and see if you can spot the next big thing!

The Great Escape 2020 takes place from the 13-16 May, and this year’s headliners include Aitch, Ghostpoet and the House of Pharoahs, among a diverse and lengthy list of artists.
