Hailed as Europe’s leading festival for new music showcasing over 400 up and coming artists from across the globe, The Great Escape Festival in Brighton is a weekend full of music and will feature an array of artists we’ve supported through our Talent Programme.
Over the three day festival, performances will include JP Cooper, Cut Ribbons, SYKES, FURS, and The Slow Revolt and Feldspar who are both set to rock the Alternative Escape. Our Talent Programme Manager, Tim Foxon, and Communications Manager, Christine Brown, will be out and about in Brighton over the weekend.
Tim said, "We're really looking forward to hearing our artists perform alongside such a diverse program, plus the opportunity to engage with industry colleagues to scope out what's next for the future of the music business".
Now in its tenth year, not only is the festival a chance to hear great new music, but it’s also the UK’s leading music business convention, hosting over 3,000 industry folk for three days of panels, conversations and networking.
We’ll be spreading the word about the range of our support for musicians, including our recent partnership with PledgeMusic, the Emerging Artists Fund. The aim is to support a diverse range of up and coming artists who have the ‘DIY’ drive to build a long term career.
You can find Tim and Christine on Twitter or on The Great Escape Festival directory. For more information on current opportunities, visit the emerging musicians section and follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
