3 days, 30 venues, over 450 artists coming from , the festival is the place where you are going to finally enjoy the British summer, and discover your new favorite bands.
My selection from last year included: Rag’n’Bone Man, Fickle Friends, Goats Girl, Will Joseph Cook, and King Nun.
Spreading a bit more this year, the festival has now a site on Brighton’s beach, with a capacity of 2,000 persons! And the line up is various and interesting as always with the come back of King Nun and Goat Girls for example, but also new acts everyone’s talking about at the moment: Superorganism, Pale Waves, Bloxx, BØRNS, Cassia, and so many more that you can decide to check now on The Great Escape Festival, OR you can decide to wait and go blindfolded to discover your new favorite bands. Believe me, getting lost in the city center and experimenting new sounds is the key to have the best week end and give your summer a perfect start!
There are some artists who will be playing this year, and you must not miss out on their set! The Australian alternative rock The Faim, who worked with the likes of Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker (Blink-182), Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds of Summer) and produced by the worldwide know producer John Feldman indie rock trio: Husky Loops, who already played with the sensational London rock band: Dead!; Pretty Vicious, the crazy rock Welsh; Dermot Kennedy, who managed to give chills to the packed crowd of Scala in London, twice; the Irish from Fangclub ending their Uk tour; but also Stereo Honey; Rews; Freya Ridings; Marsicans; Luna Bay; Sam Fender, Lewis Capaldi and the amazing Sun Arcana who almost made me cry at Sofar Sound last night in London, and just released their acoustic EP ‘As I Take A Breath’.
So save the dates and buy your ticket now before it’s too late! More information is here. Make sure to stop by, have a pint, and enjoy free music at The Alternative Great Escape showcase a lot of small amazing emerging bands in Brighton.
