Team TicketWeb were out in force for The Great Escape Festival 2018. We did thirteen artist interviews, saw a gazillion acts and had an incredible time schmoozing in the sun. All of our video content and professional photos will be shared with you over the coming days.
Here’s just some of what we saw at Wednesday’s opening party and on day 1. The Brighton-based festival for new music did not disappoint.
