Music discovery showcase and conference

The Great Escape is the festival for new music attracting nearly 16,500 avid music fans and about 4,500 music industry delegates each year featuring over 500 artists performing across 40 walkable venues and outdoor spaces. Since 2018, The Great Escape also has a very own festival site on Brighton Beach – a 2,000-capacity area with three music venues, bars and food.

The Great Escape is renowned globally as the leading showcase festival for launching new talent in the UK and European markets. It’s the first place to discover your new favorite artist and see them in an intimate setting before they go on to headline major festival stages; thus, is also attended by the music industry who are on the hunt for the next big thing.

Taking place alongside the live shows, The Great Escape hosts a new music business conference featuring insightful panels, topical debates, keynote speeches and networking opportunities in abundance that is attended by some of the biggest names in the international music industry who come to network and do business. The Alternative Escape, our Spotlight Shows, secret gigs, club nights and spontaneous collaborations all add to the festivities.
