The Great Escape will return to the bustling British seaside city of Brighton from the 8-10 May 2014, presenting festival-goers with over 400 new artists, from local to international acts, across 35 different venues throughout the city. Running alongside this is the Great Escape convention which hosts a variety of insightful industry talks, panel debates, targeted networking sessions and keynote interviews for industry professionals and music business fans.
