The Brighton Music Blog guide to The Great Escape 2019

TGE19

Next week sees the return of The Great Escape, where we all get even less sleep than normal, and anywhere you could imagine a stage, and a few places you couldn’t, turn into venues for three days. It overshadows most other musical happenings in May, which is quite remarkable since May is also the month of Brighton Festival, so this post replaces our usual monthly gig preview.

There’s quite a few Brighton Bands playing as part of the main Great Escape, but there’s even more playing Alternative Escape gigs or unofficial gigs, none of which are listed in the Great Escape app. There’s over 60 of these gigs that I’ve managed to find, so rather than put them all into this post, I’ve put them into some Google spreadsheets which will help you find your way around.

Without further ado, here are Brighton bands playing as part of the main Great Escape:
