The Great Escape
The Great Escape Festival in Brighton celebrates music and culture with a series of events taking place in over 35 Brighton venues inviting over 400 artists to play.
All the venues are accessible with a festival wristband that gives you great flexibility so you can discover handfuls of new bands and artists before they go on to headline festivals and sell out tours around the UK and in some cases, the world.
As well as the main music festival, The Great Escape also runs a conference alongside the gigs that offers panels, debates, speeches and networking opportunities in relation to the musical action going on at the festival. Add this to the host of secret gigs, club nights, spontaneous collaborations and the Brighton Dome shows as well as the Alternative Escape and The Great Escape Festival becomes quite an experience to behold.
