20 Shows We Can’t Wait To See At The Great Escape

Thousands of music fans are descending on Brighton this weekend for this year’s The Great Escape Festival. With over 400 artists on the bill, it can be a daunting challenge to pick which artists to spend your time watching. Here’s 20 shows we recommend catching. 

TicketWeb + Live Nation showcases – Thursday 12-4pm and 6-10pm – Upstairs @ Patterns 

*Cheeky plug alert* We’re hosting two shows at this year’s TGE, taking over Upstairs @ Patterns on Thursday afternoon/evening. First up we’re teaming with the guys at Live Nation Source to host Her’s, Jade Bird, Monster Florence & River Matthews. Then after a two-hour gap, we’re hosting Rosborough, Jerkcurb, Carys Selvey and Odd Beholder.
