Organisers of The Great Escape festival have announced that their new live showcase The Road To The Great Escape will now take place in 2021.
Originally set to act as a precursor for this year’s The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, the “road trip” festival, which would have seen stops in Glasgow and Dublin, was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, a new set of dates have been announced for the live music showcase, which will include performances from artists on the 2021 lineup for The Great Escape.
Due to take place at a number of different multiple venues, Glasgow will welcome a series of performances on May 8-9, 2021, while Dublin will see shows taking place on my 10-11.
TGE is hitting the road in 2021.
The Road To The Great Escape comes to Scotland and Ireland, with 2 day showcases across Glasgow on 8-9 May, and across Dublin on 10-11 May 2021. 🚀
