The Great Escape Festival - May 17th to 19th 2018
The Great Escape is the UK's biggest new music showcase, championing unsigned and underground artists from a range of genres, including rock, indie, hip-hop, grime and electronic music.
With nearly 500 artists and bands performing at Brighton’s many, many venues, The Great Escape is a chance to catch rising stars and mix with industry professionals, such as publications, companies and labels, who will be imparting their knowledge at the variety of conferences and conventions throughout the festival.
Now renowned around the UK and beyond as the place-to-be, the diverse festival brings the place to life, reverberating through its music venues, theatres, pubs, bars, pop-up stages and street corners.
The best way to get about and the most out of the festival’s busy schedule, is to hire a quick and comfortable city bike from Brighton’s longest established cycle hire.
