Arlo Parks, BERWYN, & Holly Humberstone lead the first names for The Great Escape 2021

Kicking off the much-needed return of UK festival season, The Great Escape has announced the first fifty acts set to play its belated 15th anniversary edition. The internationally renowned new music festival and conference will take over Brighton from 12 – 15 May 2021.

This year has proven to be an especially difficult and challenging time for new and independent artists. In the absence of touring, they have relied on sharing music with a digital audience, and connecting with fans online.

After months of streaming music from leading TGE21 names Holly Humberstone, Arlo Parks, BERWYN, Oscar Lang, AMA, Baby Queen, Olivia Dean, Walt Disco & more; it’s almost time to see these artists perform live.

The Great Escape Festival 2021 will be a huge celebration of the return of live music, as well as a place to discover the next big headliners as we restart the new decade.

The festival will take place across 30+ walkable venues in Brighton. Tickets for The Great Escape 2021 start from £70 and are on sale now.
