Kano and friends have been announced as the final 'spotlight show' for The Great Escape, which features hundreds of international and UK pop, cutting edge, hip hop, electronic, and rock acts showcased at venues all over Brighton from Thursday 18th until Saturday 20th May 2017.
Kano said: "I can't wait to get back onstage with my band, and what makes it even more exciting is that I got some friends with me. And they just so happen to be some of the best in the game today."
There's already more than 600 bands 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 list of confirmed acts please see the Great Escape line-up page.
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.
