The Great Escape Announce First Names for 2021

The Great Escape have announced the first 50 acts for the internationally renowned new music festival in Brighton, from 12th-15 May 2021. The line-up includes artists such as Arlo Parks, Holly Humberstone, AMA and Walt Disco, as well as some charting break out arts such as Bree Runway and 220 KID. As well as the live shows, the music-led conference will also be running which features key figures from across the industry, with various panels, keynote speeches and network opportunities.

The Brighton festival is a heavily anticipated festival for music lovers all around the world and with the 15th anniversary being postponed this year due to the pandemic, the festival organisers are more than confident that following the news of the vaccine is a sign that next years 30+ venue showcase will be a go-ahead. With more than 450 acts, including the highly anticipated spotlight shows with some of the biggest acts around, it’s no wonder that everyone is anticipating the comeback of live shows after a near year without them.

Alongside the announcement of the festival comes the introduction of The Road to the Great Escape, stopping off at Glasgow from the 8th to the 9th May and in Dublin from 10th to 11th May anticipation of the festival to introduce some of the highlighted acts such as Oscar Lang, Remi Wolf and Lizzie Reid amongst others.

For the second year running, TGE is partnering up with Grassroots Suicide Prevention charity, which is also Brighton based and is a UK leader in suicide prevention, supporting people in the community to “develop the skills and confidence needed to save lives through open and courageous conversations”. When purchasing tickets for the festival and conference, customers are given the opportunity to donate to the charity directly.

With prices starting at £70, it’s a small price to pay for a stellar line-up of the biggest up-and-coming artists in a stunning location filled with creativity.
