The Great Escape Festival Sells Out

It was announced yesterday that The Great Escape Festival has sold out one week before it's due to take place.

The leading european festival for new music is set to take place next week on May 14th until Saturday 16th, with the line-up including the likes of Slaves, Django Django, Adam French, Animal House, The Cribs, Shamir, Alabama Shakes, Skepta, Swim Deep and many more across lots of venues in Brighton. There is also The Alternative Escape which runs along side the festival, however, you do not need a wristband to get into those venues.

Speaking about the festival selling out, the festival director, Kat Morris, said "This is the perfect way to celebrate our 10th birthday; We're completely overwhelmed with the response to this year's line-up and can't wait to get started and welcome the biggest new music fans and best emerging artists to Brighton next week."

The Great Escape is also expected to host a record number of secret gigs across the weekend, with Paul Weller already being announced as one of them.

If you managed to grab a ticket, you can get more information about the weekend here; including stage splits, schedules and other big events that will be happening. If you were unfortunate enough to not get your hands on one of the tickets, It's All Indie will be there all weekend covering as much as possible.
