New venue and a host of fresh names confirmed...

The Great Escape is set to extend on to Brighton's world famous beach this year.

The multi-venue event essentially takes over every free space in Brighton, with some wonderfully off piste venue choices.

2018 finds the festival getting bigger than ever, extending on to the shore with new venue The Beach.

A 2000 capacity site, the first names for the ambitious venture include much-hyped multimedia pop experience Superorganism, Tom Grennan, Nilüfer Yanya, and South London crew Goat Girl.

Elsewhere The Great Escape has confirmed a partnership with local charity FareShare Sussex, dedicating to catching surplus food and re-distributing to more than 100 sites across the country.

Rachel Carless, Development Manager said: “We are so thrilled to be working together with the Great Escape. As a small charity it is really exciting for us, making a real impact boosting our profile as well as raising much-needed funds to keep up our work.”

The Great Escape runs between May 17th - 19th.
