The Great Escape Festival 2022 Brighton Bands roundup

In just over a week, hundreds of bands from across the world will descend on Brighton and play gigs as part of what is arguably Brighton’s best weekend for music. In previous years the number of local bands on the bill hasn’t been quite as high as it could have been, but this year seems to have quite impressive representation.

On top of all this there’s also all the unofficial gigs going on around town, which I’ll cover in a separate post, which is where you find a lot more local bands playing who might not be on the main bill. Watch this space for that post coming up later this week.

Anyway, here’s all the Brighton bands that I’ve spotted in the line up, along with their stages and set times. See you down the front

It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing.
