The Great Escape

Tickets have gone on sale for the 2021 edition of new music festival The Great Escape. Taking place in Brighton from 12-15 May 2021, the event will be a belated fifteenth birthday edition following the cancellation of the 2020 festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

CMU will return to curate the TGE delegate programme for the tenth time, with the core CMU+TGE Conference taking place from 12-14 May, each day putting the spotlight on another aspect of the modern music business. Delegates will also have access to a programme of panels and networking events presented by the festival’s industry partners, while the professional development programme for early-career music people, TGE Elevate, will also return.

On the festival side, more than 450 acts will perform in more than 30 venues across Brighton, with the usual diverse mix of artists and bands from all of the world, and some extra surprises for the fifteen birthday celebrations.

Announcing that tickets are now on sale for 2021, Rory Bett of TGE promoter MAMA Festivals says: “We are absolutely delighted to be returning to the beautiful Brighton seaside to celebrate The Great Escape’s fifteenth birthday next year. Once again, we will be curating a line-up of the best in new music, and a conference schedule like no other. We look forward to welcoming back new and old fans alike to make our 2021 edition truly unforgettable!’

Festival tickets are currently available at the early bird rate of £70, while delegate passes – getting people access to the full conference programme as well as priority access to the festival – are currently available for £180.
