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.

The festival would be hard put to offer more breadth and diversity of genres and with its focus on new music and accompanying industry convention, it's often compared to America’s SXSW festival.

Take your pick from scores of artists and immerse yourself in a sea of new music. Choose well and you’ll be able to say ‘I saw them in a tiny little venue before they were famous…

The Great Escape festival takes place 18-20 May, and this year’s headliners include Rag 'n' Bone Man and Slaves among a diverse and lengthy list of artists.
