The Great Escape (TGE) is a festival that showcases emerging artists from all over the world. Over 450 up and coming bands play in 35 Brighton venues, which makes TGE the first place to discover new favorite bands and see them in an intimate setting before they go on to headline major festival stages. Among the the first artists that will join the 2018 line up are Pale Waves, Lewis Capaldi, Bad Gyal, Dream State and many more.
From Austria, Mavi Phoenix joins the line-up to bring her unique blend of rap, r’n’b and contemporary pop to Brighton. Her refreshing sound was already heralded in international tastemakers such as The FADER and placed her #1 on global Hype Machine Charts.
In the last years, Austrian acts such as James Hersey, Leyya, Salute, Mieux, Bulbul, Mile Me Deaf and more played successful showcases in Brighton. TGE is also attended by the music industry who are on the hunt for the next big thing. TGE runs a convention alongside the gigs featuring insightful panels, topical debates, keynote speeches and networking opportunities in abundance. The Netherlands will be TGE´s lead international partner in 2018, which means, the festival will be highlighting The Netherland’s music industry and new talents throughout the program. The Alternative Escape, the Brighton Dome Shows, secret gigs, club nights and spontaneous collaborations all add to the festivities. Read more: www.greatescapefestival.com
