Since being founded in 2006, The Great Escape has been firmly established internationally as the leading event for showcasing new music. Taking place in Brighton over 3 days in May, The Great Escape kicks starts the festival season, introducing 15,000 music lovers to the key artists and sounds of the year. Over 300 bands playing in 30 venues over 3 days, pre-publicized performances, and impromptu street gigs spring up all over town. The Alternative Escape, numerous club nights, label parties, industry showcases, unique collaborations and outdoor gigs all add to the festivities.
We love music festivals as much as you do. Music Festival Junkies is dedicated to covering the scene, the experience, and the music with news, lineups, reviews, and commentary. See you this summer somewhere down the gypsy road.
