The Great Escape | Festival Preview


Key Acts: Aurora, Gengahr, Soak, Ibeyi, All Tvvins, Django Django, Girl Band & Slaves.

It’s no secret that we at Bristol Live love new acts and, well, there’s surely no better place to find them than at veritable new-palooza The Great Escape. Often referred to as ‘our SXSW’, Brighton’s music festival-cum-industry showcase is perhaps the UK’s most successful execution of the multi-venue format to date. Those who’ve been before will have fond memories of running between auditoriums and dive bars, and those who haven’t may even find themselves a little overwhelmed. One thing’s for sure, though, you’ll be racking up muchos ‘I saw them first’ points. In addition to the fest proper, Alternative Escape provides a second bubbling background of nascent acts for your unticketed discovery. Yep, an entire culture has sprung up around this event — but that’s the magic of TGE.
