The Great Escape is a showcase for new music, mixed with well-known artists, both for the festival goers and for the industry insiders. Brighton, probably the cutest seaside city of the United Kingdom will be literally invaded by music for 3 days: 450 artists, 30 city venues plus a huge (double) location on the beach.
The lineup showcases the future of pop and alternative music, including emerging names ranging from South Korea to Canada, from Australia to Portugal, with British representation. The genres go from the Indian electronics to rap. Between a dj set by Laurel Halo, the rough guitars of Goat Girl and the psychs of Chileans The Ganjas, the advice is to venture through the dense program in search of the musical discovery of the year.
