The Great Escape Festival 2023

The Great Escape, Brighton, 10th-13th May 2023

Every May the streets of Brighton are heaving with creativity as the Festival, Fringe and the biggest showcase of new music in The Great Escape all hit the city. With hundreds of artists playing showcase events at venues big and small, this year brought as eclectic as ever a mix of music from across the world.

Hard to know where to start but the first of three shows from Jessica Winter seemed as good a place as any on Thursday. With the crowd singing and dancing along so early in the day, a lasting impression was made that involved catching two more of her sets across the weekend.

Next up, The Umlauts and I swear each time I see them they try to add more band members onto the stage. Given that the stage at Revenge isn’t that big they did well to reach 9 people not to mention multiple instruments – novel to listen to techno at 3.15 in the afternoon rather than 3.15 in the morning, and a fun time for the crowd.

Following a recommendation to catch New York’s cumgirl8, it seemed the hype was widespread as they filled out not just the main room at Volks, but had probably as many people again watching from the bar. A popular choice for sure.

Another recommendation took us to The Paganini Ballroom for some dreamy shoegaze from Whitelands opening the BBC Introducing stage in style. Some strong choices from Steve Lamacq as they were followed by an accomplished set from Nottingham’s rising stars Divorce.



The next act on stage was the mighty VLURE – the first of two outstanding sets from them over the weekend. To say all I want to say about them would realistically take over the review, so head on over to our separate feature here for more from Glasgow’s finest.


On to Brighthelm for another tightly packed stage with The Joy Hotel and some serious musical talent on display. And for the third Glaswegian act in a row, Dylan John Thomas impressed everyone with some powerful yet understated vocals and melodies to finish the night – definitely one to watch.

Friday started with a couple of ‘unofficial’ sets, always worth popping into some of the local pubs and breweries to see what’s happening. At Unbarred, Mary of the Junkyard kicked off another busy day with a deft mix of guitar riffs and violin, while The Pipeline opened with the silky vocals of Rosie Alena.

On to Charles Street Tap and a smoke machine that wouldn’t have been out of place on Stars in Their Eyes. Once the haze cleared, singer-songwriter Childe held a rapt audience, the calm before the inevitable upcoming storm as next up VLURE were back to notch things up several levels with another stand out performance.



Over at Revenge, Jessica Winter finished her excellent run of shows at the Gay Times showcase, GT written on her back in tape in homage. Then over to Komedia Studio for the beautiful soundscape of Pozi, the trio melting together their unique blend of calm and chaos.

Back to the mounds of dried ice at Charles Street Tap for one of the weekend’s most hotly-tipped acts in Heartworms. Some tech issues that seemed to run throughout the set didn’t stop a captivating performance, particularly impressive under the circumstances.


After a full day it’s easy to pack up before the later slots. However, worth the late night, PPJ definitely restarted the party bringing French house (more château than maison), Eurodance and donk to the table; a high energy end to Friday at Komedia.

No let up in the energy stakes on Saturday as Yabba took their hard-hitting, in your face act to the dark sweat box of Volks. Then over at The Hope & Ruin bar, although not technically part of the official TGE line-up, we were introduced to Dutch psych group A Fungus, who warmed things up nicely for the mayhem of Personal Trainer and surely one of the most packed and interactive sets of the day.

Continuing the fun at Inn on the Square, bigfatbig’s enthusiasm was infectious and ably backed by the sun streaming through the windows – a sunny day at the seaside finally joining proceedings.

Some much needed relaxation next as Canada’s Ellevator played in the fabulous setting of One Church, delicate tunes sweeping into something bigger and certainly memorable.



With a list of production credits as long as your arm, it was James Ellis Ford’s time to take the spotlight at Chalk performing his own music with backing band. Everything blended well and the music was cleverly put together with a sense that you couldn’t quite put your finger on what some of the exact sounds were, a sax sounding like a synth just one of the many enigmas.

Staying at Chalk, Flossing offered up a confident stage presence and brooding tunes, while the room was unsurprisingly busy for the ever-popular PVA.

A stroll down the pier saw Holiday Ghosts bring their freshly released new album to their adopted home city in a packed out Horatio’s – a no nonsense fun time for all. And the latest incarnation of near locals Traams followed up, now playing their Krautrock inspired sounds as a five piece.

A strong finish from Nuha Ruby Ra at Revenge brought our Great Escape to a close with her traditional double mic set up, lighting befitting of underground nightclub status and an unexpected bugle – a fairly conclusive way to end proceedings.

Another successful year for Brighton’s annual festivities, another bunch of favourite artists revisited and new ones discovered, and now some sleep…

Live – VLURE at The Great Escape

VLURE, The Great Escape 2023, Brighton (11th May at Paganini Ballroom / 12th May at Charles Street Tap)

One of the joys of a festival is discovering new artists. However, there are times when you know you’ve already discovered the best artist there so why look elsewhere. After stealing the limelight and taking the roof off at Horatio’s in 2022, VLURE were back with two shows this year, once again blowing everything else out of the sea.

First up, at the invitation of Steve Lamacq and BBC Introducing, Paganini Ballroom saw justifiable queues down the street. As always, an intense and beguiling performance – made for the radio but fit for any media channel you’d care to pick. Dating back to the 17th century, Paganini offered a classy venue for a class act.

Over to Pias hosting at Charles Street Tap for show number two, a venue not without its tech issues throughout the day. Whatever problems were flagging up during line check were happily forgotten as another faultless set kicked in. With a multitude of genre-crossing sets happening all across Brighton there was a lot of talent on display at TGE, but the crown remains firmly with VLURE. Those who were there will come back, those who weren’t should make it their mission to be there next time.

Preview – Seaview Festival 2023 (Bexhill)

Seaview Festival, Bexhill-on-Sea, 8th July 2023

New festival anyone? By the sea and in touching distance of one of the most iconic Modernist buildings on the south coast? You’re in luck, as the inaugural Seaview Festival takes place this summer on De La Warr Pavilion’s South Lawns beachside plaza.

Brought to you by austerity records, as well as a fine mix of live music you’ll find DJs and DLWP’s very own record store Music’s Not Dead, along with a pop-up shop from the lovely team at Bella Union. With a range of food and drink options, and a great view, there’ll be plenty to keep you busy in between sets.

And speaking of the music… a great line-up including purveyors of disco-punk Warmduscher (a band we once described as ‘a hybrid of genres meshed and held together by sheer talent and an occasional disco ball’), storyteller in song BC Camplight and, fresh from touring with Suede, local supergroup Aircooled. The rest of the bill is equally as strong, featuring Heartworms, Pale Blue Eyes, Snayx, Winter Gardens and the wonderfully named Office For Personal Development. If you’re not familiar with any of these artists, now would be a good time to change that; they’re all cropping up as ones to watch with quality live performances. Looking forward to this one; come and join us there.

Preview – KITE Festival 2023 (Oxfordshire)

KITE Festival, Kirtlington Park, Oxfordshire, 9th – 11th June 2023

Amongst the newer UK festivals, KITE looks to find its USP by ‘reimagining the festival space as it curates a journey of cutting-edge debate and a rich programme of ideas‘.

Offering a literary and conversational flavour to its core activities, KITE brings big names from entertainment and journalism to present In Conversations (long-form interviews), ThinkIns (smaller group discussions), KITE Lessons as well as panels, debates, live podcasts and comedy. And with the list of those taking part including the eclectic mix of Dame Joan Collins, Susanna Hoffs, Dylan Jones, Dave Gorman and David Baddiel, the range of subjects covered looks set to be as eclectic as its participants.

Then of course there’s the music. Drawing some big artists, this year’s line-up features Hot Chip, Suede, The Pretenders, Baxter Dury, Candi Staton, Django Django, Ezra Collective, DJ Sofia Kourtesis, Sarathy Korwar and Lynks – all playing across different stages with a historic backdrop.

KITE takes place in Kirtlington Park, overlooking the Chiltern Hills near Oxford, from 9th – 11th June. If you’re looking for something different to kick start your summer, remaining tickets are available on the link below.

Preview – Boomtown 2023 (Winchester)

Boomtown – Ch. 2 The Twin Trail, Winchester, 9th – 13th August 2023

In an ever expanding festival calendar, it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. But Boomtown aims to do just that, setting out to collide ‘the best parts of festivals, theatres and gaming to create a parallel world where the only limit is your imagination‘, and reviews from last year suggest it hits the target in style.

With eight themed districts where you can plunge yourself into treasure-hunting, puzzle-solving, live-action role-plays and immersive theatre, Boomtown offers a collective of emerging and established artists playing live and plenty of opportunities to dance the night away in your new found community.

Their approach to the music is also very different to most events that try to pull in numbers with big name announcements. The website advises, ‘We’ve made the decision to keep most of the line up a secret until just before the festival. There are many aspects to the way the music industry is run that simply don’t work for festivals. We have always been a creatively led festival and people attend Boomtown because of the overall experience, we will continue to book incredible artists, and all the festival favourites, but by approaching our programming announcements in this radical way, we can create lineups that are even more phenomenal and diverse than we have ever been able to before’. Known for representing the world of reggae, you’re also likely to find an array of genres encompassing punk, metal, ska and folk, so the gamble is mitigated.

If you’re looking for something a bit different this year, Boomtown offers an adventure, not just an event. More details and tickets here.

Takedown Festival returned at the weekend after an 8 year hiatus, and it’s pulling no punches. With a huge line-up of alternative rock and metal names, the event moved to its new multi-stage home at Portsmouth Guildhall, bringing over 30 artists to the coast, and leaving no doubt that it’s back in style. Takedown‘s comeback is part of a new partnership between Divergent Festivals and The Guildhall Trust.

The Great Escape, Brighton, 10th – 13th May 2023

Another announcement this week from the team at The Great Escape brings 140 more artists to the streets and stages of Brighton in May – and it incorporates a veritable list of musical talent.

Following the surprise addition to the bill of new wave/rock stalwarts The Pretenders, newer artists joining the festival and well worth getting along to see include Moonchild Sanelly, Coach Party (oh yes, there’s more than one great band on the Isle of Wight), Future Utopia, Sprints and BG favourites / last year’s show stealers VLURE.

With an increasingly formidable and eclectic line-up, as always the festival will run in multiple venues across the city and host a 3-day conference featuring big music industry names.

The Great Escape, Brighton, 10th – 13th May 2023

Heading up the spring/summer festival party, Brighton’s The Great Escape is long established as a front-runner in championing great new music, and 2023 looks set to be no exception. With almost 300 artists already announced, and around half as many again still to be confirmed, this truly is an eclectic, international line-up where you’re sure to discover something fresh and new. 

Latest additions to the bill include Sorry, The Murder Capital, Dolores Forever, 86TVs (new project from Felix and Hugo of The Maccabees), PVA and Dylan John Thomas.

With previous announcements taking in a plethora of acts to look out for  – Anna Erhard, Bibi Club, Divorce, Freddy Merkky, Peaks, Redolent, Skinner, The Last Dinner Party to name just a few – it’s never too early to start planning for this year’s event. Head over to The Great Escape website for the full line-up so far and to check out ticket options. And for a flavour of what to expect, you can find our coverage from last year here.

Lewes Psychedelic Festival 2023

Lewes Psychedelic Festival, 4th February 2023

There are few events that will sell out almost instantly, whether or not the line-up has been announced, but this annual festival in Lewes is certainly one. An eclectic gathering of all things psychedelic, via folk, electronica, indie and classic psychedelia, it’s a veritable magic carpet ride for the senses .

The converted church setting of All Saints Centre is the perfect venue and, as much as instore performances in bigger record shops are great, it’s always a pleasure to find people squeezing into the smaller ones for the most intimate of performances, in this case Union Music Store.

Brought to you by Melting Vinyl and Innerstrings (also responsible for the incredible visuals), check out our gallery for a taster of this year’s celebrations.

Mutations Festival 2022 (part 2)

Mutations Festival, Brighton – 4th/5th November 2022

It was good to see Mutations back following last year’s successful post-lockdown event. Word seemed to have spread, as we met lots of people who’d travelled from across the UK to be here.

After an energy-filled start on Thursday, Friday saw a welcome return to Brighton for Pozi at the Latest Music Bar. Some technical issues at the start of the set must have had the band reminiscing about the feedback horrors of the Great Escape, but fair play to the sound team on this occasion for getting things back on track; setting up a violin to be its best must be a challenge after a swathe of guitar bands, but thankfully not an insurmountable challenge on this occasion. It wouldn’t often come across as a compliment to say a band is interesting – Pozi though really are interesting in the best of ways, and always a good booking.

Some consternation from ticket holders that their expectations of being guaranteed entry to the headline acts at Chalk were blighted by long queues outside the venue, which seemingly was already at capacity, resulting in some missing out on the joys of Warmduscher and the eclectic stage presence of Squid. Security is often much maligned but did a great job here in appeasing the crowd and keeping things upbeat.

Happily, this seemed to have been resolved by Saturday, and not even the continuous rain could dampen the mood. After lots of strong rumours about the secret set at Chalk, The Murder Capital came on fashionably late; a general crowd-pleaser seeming pleased themselves to cause a mosh pit so early in the day.

More audience interaction over at The Albert, as Saint Agnes stepped in at the eleventh hour and brought together old fans and new – their tribute to Keth Flint, a pure punk version of Firestarter, putting a smile on everyone’s face.

And if those present thought that was a lively performance, they were about to have the stakes upped in dramatic fashion. Priestgate are always going to be in line for the most photographed band award – the fact that they could barely all fit on the stage not causing an issue as vocalist Rob Schofield is barely still for a second, and as happy in the crowd or hanging from the lights as at the front. A delight to watch and shoot, look out for a return date to Brighton in February.

Over at The Hope & Ruin, Spang Sisters brought the pace down with ease and style. With an ever-changing line up and numerous ties to other local bands, they played a beautiful set complete with flute, cello, violin, drums, bass, and some hopping between guitar and keys. It can be easy in all-day events to stick with the most outrageous or frenetic on the bill, but to master laid back orchestration is something special and those present here were onto a winner. Charismatic, refreshing, and a welcome break from ego that delivers more than any facade could.

A quick run down the road to Komedia Studio delivered a very busy room engulfed by the smoke machine. Thankfully, Jessica Winter’s vocals are consistently so sharp and on-point that they cut through the dried ice with ease. Replicating recorded versions of tracks isn’t a gift everyone has, and it’s a measure of talent and confidence that lets an artist carry off a solo performance where nothing is lost in translation – downstairs at the theatre felt like stepping into something separate from the rest of the festival, a happy parallel world in a darkened basement.

Sticking around at Komedia, finally a chance to see Hamish Hawk live – and it didn’t disappoint. Hawk falls comfortably into that cluster of Scottish vocalists who have a certain euphonious quality of tone that captivates and charms (preceded by Mackenzie, Collins, Kapranos et al). Another act returning to Brighton in the new year, and one not to be missed.

And then the inevitable choice between headliners and more intimate surroundings resulted in a dip into both. Shame brought a big crowd at Chalk, choosing a wall of sound over clarity, and won the crowd over with lots of early favourites mixed with teasers from next year’s album release.

While back at The Hope & Ruin, Fräulein showcased their grunge-tinted talents, giving a great performance and engaging the room from start to finish. The two-piece have an obvious musical connection which only seems to get stronger over time. A perfect way to end the evening.

With more to follow for those attending on Sunday from Scalping and Bob Vylan amongst others, Mutations managed once again to put together an impressive list of artists to fill the venues of Brighton, leaving the train strikes and the weather a distant memory. See you next year!

An international flavour to open and close day one at Chalk, the biggest venue taking part in this year’s Mutations Festival, as things kicked off with The Netherlands’ indie-pop outfit Pip Blom, and finished with the riotous glory of Russia’s Pussy Riot. Deftly sandwiched in the middle were Manchester electro wizards WH Lung and dream-psych Brighton favourites Penelope Isles.

New Wave of Classic Rock Festival, Wolverhampton, October 2022

With the summer festival season under wraps, it’s great to see indoor events kicking in to help us through the colder seasons. The inaugural New Wave of Classic Rock (NWOCR) festival brought a host of rock acts to the stage at KK’s Steel Mill in Wolverhampton. Tina Sherwood was there to soak in the brilliant atmosphere, photos from some of the acts performing below, including Saturday headliners The Dust Coda and Sunday headliners Bad Touch.

All Points East Festival 2022

All Points East Festival, London, 28th August 2022

With a propensity for pulling in the biggest names, All Points East returned this year with another impressive run of weekend events that included headline slots from Disclosure, The National, Tame Impala, Gorillaz and culminating last Sunday with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

Cave’s last performance at APE in 2019 is still revered and doubtless this one will be talked about for a long time too. A captivating showman with a setlist spanning the career of The Bad Seeds, the two hours plus on stage was once again a showcase of how to hold a crowd in the palm of your red right hand.

Still, there were plenty of reasons to be there earlier in the day too with some excellent main stage sets from Chilli Jesson and Kae Tempest amongst others. Jesson seems to be more accomplished with each performance, and Tempest could easily have been much higher up the line-up and without doubt captured some new fans.

Over at the BMW #PlayNext stage, lots of new talent throughout the day with exciting sets from Attawalpa, Bonnie Kemplay and fast rising stars The Dinner Party.

The North stage played host to some great music with light shows to match from the likes of Jehnny Beth, Spiritualized and Sleaford Mods, while the Ray-Ban West stage had the pleasure of Michael Kiwanuka’s presence, always a flawless production.

An eclectic mix and an open opportunity to see some firmly established acts while discovering new breakthrough artists just around the corner. Looking forward to seeing who APE manage to sign up in 2023.

Victorious Festival 2022

Victorious Festival, 26th-28th August 2022, Southsea Common

Long established as a local festival, Victorious has grown over the years and now attract tens of thousands of people from near and far across the late summer bank holiday weekend. Family friendly and with some huge names performing, there’s a wide variety of music and activities running over the three days and, at the risk of throwing in a well versed cliche, there really is something for everyone.

Previously a two day event, the Friday opener is now well established and this year kicked off with Primal Scream playing in the hot, hot sunshine. From Bobby Gillespie’s Screamadelica inspired suit, to the gospel voices joining the stage, to the entire crowd singing along to Come Together, this was the perfect start to the weekend and a beautiful reminder of the power of live music.

Another standout on the main stage was (unsurprisingly) Self Esteem. Victorious has been criticised in the past for a lack of female artists on its line-up. It was really good to see a significant turnaround on this, as the rows of teenage girls loving every second of this set will attest – would be great to see a switch-up in the daily headliners too next year – 2022 offered up Stereophonics on Friday, Paolo Nutini on Saturday and Sam Fender on Sunday. Other big names across the weekend included James, Anna Calvi, Bastille, Sports Team, Anne Marie and Suede.

There was also plenty going on at the selection of smaller stages with some great showcases from loads of local favourites – amongst others Jerry Williams, Marley Blandford, Flowvers, Welly and the inimitable Van Gosh, who never disappoint visually but don’t be lulled into thinking they’re just a gimmick band; they can really play. Lots more to see and discover across the common too with a kids’ area, comedy tent, skatepark and an impressive choice of food and drink vendors and festival shops.

All in all, a really successful weekend with lots of memories made. If you want to join in the fun, tickets for 2023 are on sale now here. Check out our photo gallery below and see if you can find your favourite act (or even yourself) in there!
