We are excited to share that The Great Escape Festival has chosen Music Support as its lead charity partner for the 2022 festival, taking place across Brighton from 11th – 14th May. 

The Great Escape is THE festival for new music, showcasing more than 450 emerging artists from across the globe in 30+ walkable venues across the city and a pop-up festival site on Brighton Beach. It’s the first place to discover your new favourite artist and see them in an intimate setting before they go on to headline major festival stages. 

The 2022 festival is shaping up to be another incredible one with everyone from American queer hyperhop artist Rebecca Black to Reading rockers, The Amazons. Gen Z grunge pop singer Baby Queen will also be playing as will Belfast post-punk rockers Enola Gay and folk-rock singer-songwriter Madison Cunningham. Click here for the full line up so far.  

The Great Escape has just announced the highly anticipated return of The Road to The Great Escape, the live music showcase in Glasgow and Dublin in the days leading up The Great Escape new music festival and conference in Brighton. Kicking off in Glasgow on 6-7 May, then travelling to Dublin on 9-10 May, The Road To The Great Escape will be bringing some of TGE 2022’s most exciting new talent to Scotland and Ireland.

2022 also sees the return of The Great Escape Conference featuring a programme of events presented especially for the 3500 industry professionals that attend TGE each year. It includes a series of keynote conversations, panels and networking events and parties. Click here for further details.
