Great Escape Festival is the SXSW of the UK. TGE showcases over 400 up and coming artists from all over the world across 35 walk-able venues every May in Brighton.
The festival is famous for championing rising stars in a huge range of genres, from rock and indie to grime, hip-hop, and experimental electronic music.
The iconic coastal city of Brighton is taken over by the festival, as music venues, theatres, pubs, bars, pop-up stages and street corners play host to all manner of live music shows.
In addition to the live music shows, there is also a large industry presence at the festival with conferences and conventions attended by representatives from a variety of music publications, companies and labels.
