Brighton Bands at the Great Escape (on film)

The Great Escape feels like a distant memory now. Everywhere else posted up their roundups days ago, but ours has taken a bit longer because of our bright idea to shoot on 35mm film , which means that we needed to wait for processing before we could even see the photos ourselves. Anyway they’re here now, so click through for our pics of ARXX at the Hope & Ruin, Lime Garden downstairs at the Hope & Ruin, Laundromat at BYX, Hanya at Presuming Eds, Hutch at East Street Tap, Plantoid at East Street Tap, Hanya (again) at Pryzm, Heights at the Komedia, and Johanna Bramli at Hotel Pelirocco.

 

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
