Founded all the way back in 2006, The Great Escape has firmly established itself internationally as a leading event for presenting new music at every corner. Taking place in Brighton in May, The Great Escape ignites the festival season with thousands of roaring music lovers to the key artists and sounds of the year.

The Great Escape offers a fantastic opportunity to see a huge range of British performers, however there is also a 'country focus' each year – in 2019, was Australia which saw a strong Antipodean contingent in the festival lineup. For many acts, travelling to Brighton from far and wide, their Great Escape performance can be a springboard to wider fame and critical acclaim. Audiences are watching acts and hoping to make some new discoveries and get a look at the next big thing.
