Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival has announced ticket details for its 2021 edition.
The new music showcase had to be cancelled this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but dates were immediately set for May 2021 for the next edition.
The Great Escape 2021, a belated 15th birthday celebration for the festival, will take place across Brighton on the weekend of May 12-15, and organisers have announced today that early bird tickets will go on sale at 9am BST tomorrow (July 14) from the festival’s website.
“We are absolutely delighted to be returning to the beautiful Brighton seaside to celebrate The Great Escape’s 15th birthday next year,” Rory Bett of promoters MAMA said. “Once again, we will be curating a line-up of the best in new music, and a conference schedule like no other. We look forward to welcoming back new and old fans alike to make our 2021 edition truly unforgettable!”
