The Great Escape 2017 is upon us – Last years event made Brighton buzz with energy.

Posted On 16 May 2017 at 8:33 pm

At last the wait is over, The Great Escape 2017 is finally here!

As per last year, the city will be hosting hundreds of music events across the three day event (18-20 May). There will be big venues and small venues, but the enthusiasm of the crowds will justifiably be the same as last year.

We are aiming to bring you as many reports and photographs as humanly possible in the coming week or so. In 2016 we managed to witness no less than 30 concerts by 29 up and coming music acts from right across the world.

So to get you in the mood for some TGE fever, this is what we saw last year. We were fortunate to witness on day one: Vallis Alps (Australia), Shortstraw (South Africa), Anna Of The North (Norway), Eera (Norway), Transviolet (USA), Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? (Finland), Let’s Eat Grandma (UK), Sudakistan (Sweden) and Kiko Bun (UK).
