Over three days last week (16-18 May) Brighton played host to hordes of the most exciting new bands around - along with a few established names. The Great Escape 2013 saw Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs playing a blistering headline set on the NME Radar stage at the Corn Exchange on the first night, Everything Everything tearing it up at the Dome Concert Hall, name-making shows from Parquet Courts and Superfood, and a Palma Violets/Merchandise gig that almost saw the entire festival dissolve into chaos. Check out these vast images of a wild weekend. (Photo: Richard Johnson/NME)
