In total 400+ bands are expected to be announced, performing in more than 35 venues spread across Brighton over the course of three days, and this year The Great Escape's lead country will be Switzerland’s music industry with performances from some of the country’s most prominent rising stars.
For the first time, all festival goers will have the opportunity to access Spotlight Shows for free without needing to buy a top-up ticket. An allocation of tickets will be set aside for each Spotlight Show for anyone who has bought a 3-day or single day festival ticket. Any ticket buyers interested in attending a Spotlight Show will then have the chance to register their interest via a pre-registration page. All those who sign-up will then receive a message the day before the show with instructions on where they can pick up tickets in Brighton on a first come, first served basis. To guarantee entry, separate Spotlight Show tickets will also be available.
Tickets are available priced at £60 for adults and £32 for young adults (aged 16-17 years). A 3-day Festival ticket gives you access to the core venues, subject to each venues capacity. As in previous years, a small number of the shows will take place at The Dome in Brighton. The line-up for these shows will be announced early next year. To ensure guaranteed access to Dome Shows, attendees will be able to top up their festival wristband for a small fee, or purchase separate gig tickets.
Early bird delegate passes are available priced at £165 (+booking fee). To buy delegates tickets now, click here.
A Great Escape delegate pass gets you access to all the core strands of the convention, including insight sessions, panels, conversations, networking events and parties, plus priority access into all festival venues subject to capacity. There are available for over 18s only.
