The Great Escape

Archive Events & Talks (16 May to 18 May 2024, 7.00pm - 11.59pm)
The Great Escape is the festival for new music, showcasing 500 emerging artists from all over the world in 30+ walkable venues across the city and a pop-up festival site on Brighton Beach.

‘As the UK’s most exciting and eclectic new music festival, The Great Escape is Brighton’s annual feast of discovery.’ NME

‘If anyone had any doubts that The Great Escape is the most important UK music festival for new bands, new trends and making new friends then they most certainly got knocked out of the water this year. 10 years in, and TGE went harder than ever before.’ Crack

‘Although similar to the new-music mecca SXSW in Texas, in many ways Britain’s equivalent event is better: more manageable, less brand-led and with just as many emerging talents, who play in tiny venues across Brighton.’ The Times
