Brighton, UK | May 18, 2017 - May 20, 2017 www.greatescapefestival.com/

The Great Escape is Europe’s leading festival for new music and new music business with over 3,000 industry delegates and 15,000 festival goers descending on the city of Brighton in May. Emerging Australian artists are some of the most anticipated throughout the entire festival, as our The Aussie BBQ and Sound Gallery showcases, who have previously featured artists such as Courtney Barnett, The Dune Rats, Jeremy Neale, The Creases, The Trouble With Templeton, Jagwar Ma, and Deep Sea Arcade.”

Kevin Moore, Event Executive

The Great Escape (TGE) is a music festival that showcases emerging artists from all over the world. Over 400 up and coming bands play in 35 Brighton venues, accessible on one wristband. It’s the first place to discover your new favorite band and see them in an intimate setting before they go on to headline major festival stages.

TGE is also attended by the music industry who are on the hunt for the next big thing. We run a convention alongside the gigs featuring insightful panels, topical debates, keynote speeches and networking opportunities in abundance.

The Alternative Escape, our Brighton Dome Shows, secret gigs, club nights and spontaneous collaborations all add the festivities and make this weekend in Brighton one not to miss.
