The Great Escape Festival
May 13, 2021 – May 15, 2021
With development of the first two vaccines as well as the roll-out of government trials for mass testing and tracing, The Great Escape is confident that a full capacity event can be achieved in 2021. Through a mix of vaccine and testing, as well as trial events, the festival will be ready and eager to safely welcome people back to live music.
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.
