Preview – The Great Escape Festival 2022

The Great Escape, Brighton, 11th – 14th May 2022

Returning after the enforced pandemic hiatus, there is much anticipation for this year’s Great Escape. As regular and makeshift venues fill their stages with a huge variety of artists, Brighton will once again become the focus of emerging musical talent from around the world. And looking at the line-up for 2022, this is going to be a very welcome comeback.

With an already solid base of acts in place, The Great Escape have just announced 180 more, including Rachel Chinouriri, Goat Girl, Crows, Kid Brunswick and NOAHFINNCE. With the likes of Bob Vylan, English Teacher, Fat Dog, Fräulein, Pozi and VLURE already in the mix (and that’s just a tiny selection of the 450+ artists confirmed so far), careful planning and your best walking shoes are going to be essential.

And whilst you’re there, away from the regular tourist trail there are heaps of great independent shops, cafés and bars to check out.

Take a look at the full line-up in all its glory, grab your tickets on The Great Escape website and we’ll see you by the seaside very soon.
