The Great Escape returns to Brighton in May 2023 to once again showcase the best in the UK’s underground music scene.

Curating a lineup filled with unsigned and underground artists from across the genre spectrum, The Great Escape is the perfect chance for astute music fans to keep their finger on the pulse of the changing musical landscape and hear the best new talent before anyone else.

In addition to its lineup of rock, indie, hip-hop, grime and electronic starlets, The Great Escape also programmes a series of conferences and conventions with key industry figures, such as brands and labels.

The festival takes over Brighton for the weekend, as venues across the city play host to events of all sizes, in dedicated venues such as the iconic Brighton Dome, pubs and bars, and pop-up stages across the city streets.
