The Brighton & Hove News music team have witnessed many of this year’s concerts during The Great Escape which took place in many venues throughout the city of Brighton and Hove on Thursday 9th, Friday 10th and Saturday 11th May.

We are currently sifting through in excess of 10,000 photographs from The Great Escape and Alternative Escape and are collating our reviews on the many artists that we have enjoyed at the event. Keep an eye out for our reports on these events over the coming days and weeks.
