The 15th edition of multi-venue festival The Great Escape, at venues all over Brighton, East Sussex, has been cancelled. It was due to take place from Wednesday 13th until Saturday 16th May 2020.
The organiser's statement says:-
We are very sorry to have to say that The Great Escape 2020 will no longer be taking place this year.
We’ve not taken this decision lightly. Taking into account that we are only a few weeks out from the event, and the current status of things, this was the best decision for fans, artists, staff and the community. The entire TGE family is so disappointed to have to make this decision and we extend our apologies to everyone who was looking forward to it as much as us.
Please rest assured we will be back on 12th – 15th May 2021 for a belated 15th year, and we hope to see you all there!
We are working closely with our ticketing partners at the moment and they will be in touch very soon to process your refund, or, if you prefer, you can retain your ticket and carry it over to next year. If you purchased your ticket from a physical outlet, please visit that store to obtain your refund.
Look out for an e-mail from your ticketing agent very soon and please only contact them if you have not been contacted after 5 days as they are very busy at this time.
Thank you, as ever, for your continued support.
