The Great Escape 2018

The Great Escape has announced that it will host a new complex on Brighton beach during this year’s festival. The 2000 capacity venue will feature performances from acts including Superorganism, Tom Grennan, Nilüfer Yanya, and Goat Girl.

“With demand and drive for new music and an ever-expanding festival, creating our first, very own festival site on the beach is the most exciting news in TGE’s history and we couldn’t have a more perfect spot than right on the seafront”, says MAMA Festivals CEO Rory Bett. “The Beach will become a magnet for music lovers during the festival and we can’t wait to open the doors”.

Programming at The Beach will be curated in partnership with a number of partners, including Island Records, Dr Martens and AWAL.

Delegate passes for this year’s Great Escape are still available. They not only get you access to all of the shows at the festival, but also the convention, including the CMU Insights conference strands. This year we will be focusing on music education, China and AI.
