The Great Escape

Events Description

Since being founded in 2006, The Great Escape has been firmly established internationally as the leading event for showcasing new music.

Taking place in Brighton over 3 days in May, The Great Escape kickstarts the festival season, introducing 16,000 music lovers to the key artists and sounds of the year. With over 450 bands playing in 30 venues over 3 days, The Great Escape is the key date in the music calendar.

Also among the highlights of the festival is The Great Escape Convention, where about 3,500 music industry professionals from all over the world gather. The TGE Convention programme helps these industry delegates learn, network and discover, to identify new talent and business partners to work with, and to explore and understand how to get more out of the business of music.

In addition, impromptu street gigs spring up all over town. The Alternative Escape, numerous club nights, label parties, industry showcases, unique collaborations and outdoor gigs all add to the festivities.

The Music for Youth Primary Proms provide primary school children ages 4-11 with the opportunity to experience live music in major concert halls across the UK and encourage their involvement in music.

Taking place throughout the year these inspirational free concerts are performed by young people, for young people, providing first-hand experience of live music-making in a fun and engaging environment.

What happens at a Primary Prom? Once you’ve taken your seats among the hundreds and sometimes thousands of other children, teachers, and parents, our presenter will guide you through the concert, giving you information about the groups performing, the music they’re playing and also the instruments they’re using. (There may even be opportunities for you to join in!)

Your job? Get excited, get involved, and most importantly, have fun!
